Fifteen year old Birmingham, Michigan (suburb of Detroit) native teenager Kevin Kristopik found out pop artist Justin Bieber’s phone number and decided to contact him 10 times per day for 3 weeks. Supposedly Kristopik hacked the account of Ryan Butler, a friend of Bieber, in order to obtain the phone number.
In response, Justin Bieber sent out the following tweet: “everyone call me [number] or text” to his 4.5 million followers. The number in the quote belonged to Kristopik. Shortly after sending out that tweet, Kristopik received over 26,000 text messages and thousands of missed calls. Kristopik had to delete his Twitter account and change his phone number after the incident.
That was pretty clever of Bieber. Don’t mess with the Biebs, the kid knows how to get his revenge on fans.
Below is a video of Kristopik’s phone in action after the tweet:
