(Newser) – The Justin Bieber backlash continues: First, hackers yesterday sent teenybopper fans looking for their Bieber YouTube fix to porn sites instead, the New York Post reports, while a pop-up claimed the star had died in a car crash. Then the bulletin board 4chan rigged Bieber's My World Tour contest—in which fans vote where he goes next—to send him to North Korea. Since most people there don't have Internet access, it's pretty clear the contest was hacked, Mashable notes. Israel had the next most votes.
