Apparently Justin Bieber fans can be bitter and vicious, according to Billboard.
After a loss for Bieber for Best New Artist award at the Grammy Awards last night, Beliebers took to the internet to express their anger with the intent to directly attack Esperanza Spalding, the talented jazz musician that took home the award.
Since Wikipedia involves some sort of citizen journalism and is allowed to be edited by anyone who isn't banned from the site, Bieber fans changed some information on the Wikipedia page about Esperanza Spalding in a rather nasty manner. Angry Beliebers changed her name on the page to Esperanza Quesadilla Spalding and wrote "JUSTIN BIEBER DESERVED IT GO DIE IN A HOLE. WHO THE HECK ARE YOU ANYWAY?"

The page has since been cleaned up. I'd comment on the immaturity of those Justin Bieber fans, but there's really no need to since they're all 12 years old, so the immaturity is somewhat expected. Talk about sore losers.
