Ban on "Gay Justin Bieber" Costume Prompts 12-Year-Old to Pull Knife on Mom

Bieber Fever: either you got it or you don't. A Surprise mom seems to be burnin' up with the affliction because she banned her 12-year-old son from dressing as a "gay Justin Bieber" for Halloween. He wasn't happy, and, in a very un-Bieber-like move -- responded by pulling a knife on her.

To some, "gay Justin Bieber" may seem redundant, which is what makes the costume idea even more awesome. Pulling a knife on your mom isn't awesome, and the kid didn't get to go trick-or-treating as a result.


The boy's mother reportedly told him the idea was disrespectful and that he couldn't wear it out trick-or-treating. The two started arguing and the mother told the kid that not only couldn't he wear the costume, but he was also grounded and couldn't trick-or-treat at all.

The kid went ballistic -- he threw a tantrum, grabbed a knife out of his room, and told the mother he was going to kill her.

He must of forgot that he's 12-years-old and, apparently, a wimp, because his mother was able to disarm him without incident and call the police.

The kid was arrested on suspicion of threatening his mother with a knife.
