Should Twitter Take Down 'Cut4Bieber' Trending Topic?

We told you earlier this week that Justin Bieber was caught on camera smoking marijuana, and the majority of you voted that it was "no big deal," but hardcore Bieber fans are not taking it lightly.

In fact, some fans are so distressed that they have resorted to cutting themselves in protest. "Cut4Bieber" has been a trending topic on Twitter throughout the week, and a quick search on the site will produce pictures of slit wrists, arms and even castrations. While many of these are jokes or fake, enough of them are believed to be real that it has become a concern.

The New York Daily News explains that the campaign started when a 4Chan.org user posted a thread stating, "Let's start a cut yourself for bieber campaign. Tweet a bunch of pics of people cutting themselves and claim we did it because bieber was smoking weed. See if we can get some little girls to cut themselves."

What do you think? Should Twitter take down the "Cut4Bieber" topic since it is causing a harmful trend among children, or should it be allowed because the majority of people are treating it like a joke?

NYDAILYNEWS.COM reports:
Justin Bieber fans have proven themselves a force to be reckoned with, but some might have gone too far by participating in a maliciously false trending topic that sparked outrage Monday night.

    Yes they should. I think that celebrity's are role models and alot of children look up to them. Young girls shouldn't be cutting themselves Over a celebrity. Is this what society's done to children? Action should be taken

    "Cut4Bieber" is incredibly stupid. There are people with a real reason or disorder and they cut. This is stupid.

    I think parents of impresionable kids should not allow them unlimeted access to the internet. If you let your dumb kids surf the web mindlessly(how Bieber was made) you shouldn't be shocked that they are engaging in dangerous or risky behavior.

    He should not only do that but take town his account and all others. And just disappear. He had his run. I say hes talentless. He was once talented though. A long ass time ago. That shipped has sailed and crashed. Hes just annoying talentless and a wannabe hipster And the 90s boyband look like is played out. But i agree he should be a man and speak up about it but he's not a man so nevermind on that one. And really he does pot? Haha. Well he has to do something for attention. Cant be any worse then his career. Haha.

    Honestly I'm a big fan of the 'survival of the fittest' idea, and if people want to cut themselves over a person they've never even met smoking weed, then I feel like it betters the rest of us. But actually no I don't want people killing themselves, I'm just really hoping their parents will see the cuts and take action. This is such a stupid trend.

    if it violates TOS or causes people to harm themselves. But if this stuff is really going on and is this much of a problem then perhaps Beiber should step up and say something like a PSA

    I meant to click yes! Yes! Radical 1st Amendmentistas would have us keep an unaltered 1st Amendment. It's time to ban certain words. There are hundreds of thousands of words in English, and more being invented all the time. We have to act to save lives now! Ban Cut4Bieber, and while we're at it ban at least the first 120 words that hurt, that bullies use to cut souls. Words can kill. Words can have a lasting impact on emotional and mental health. The radical and perverse NRA (National Rhetorical Association) are the cause of the virtual freebasing of words and directly responsible for the deaths of thousands. For every Thoreau there is an Erin Gallagher, Amanda Todd, and Felicia Garcia. What is it going to take before we defeat the NRA and ban words!

    This should be cut out (excuse the pun!) because no web site let alone a person should influence someone to try anything rash like this. Of course, Bieber is now of majority age and has a right to try anything he wants, but he also has a responsibility to fans and younger fans in particular to show some responsible behaviors. He also needs to look like he means business and this means sporting better looking clothing (Like putting on the correct size tuxedos shirt and tuxedo at the next awards show he either presents at or wins at). And most of all, if he wish sot engage in a non-repsonsible look, better he do it behind closed doors in the privacy of his home (note I said home, not car) where prying eyes won't be taking pictures of his off-public look behavior. Yes we all do things we have been ashamed of, but with this guy in the public eye much of the time, would it not be better in 25 years for him to say that his fans hadn't witnessed such stupidity in public? I think so, especially if he wants to be around this scene for 25 to 35 years as he says he wants to. Remember Elvis and what happened to him at 42? Not pretty!

    Censorship is never the answer. I think one solution would be to ista-link people who tweet this hash-tag to the help they need, or at least an informative page that explains to them that something is wrong with them, and how they can get help.

    Although you'd have to be an idiot to actually believe that cutting will get him to stop, I think it'd be best to take it down. This whole thing just baffles me. I mean, even if you are upset enough over this to cut yourself, it's his damn life and let him do what he wants with it. You're going to spend the rest of your life with scars, all because some stupid celebrity decided to get high. All this is doing is showing people how abundant stupidity is these days.

    I don't think I can say this enough..... BIEBER FANS ARE CRAZY!! TOTAL SOCIOPATHS! Who cares what he does? It's his life. Let him suck in all the poisonous smoke he wants to. People do it on the street and I don't see others cutting themselves for them. They make a big deal about everything he does. He gets a tattoo, they go crazy. He starts smoking, they go crazy. He dates Selena Gomez, they go crazy. It seems like Justin can't do anything without his fans "permission."

    and the worse part of it is people bashing on real issues like self harm, thinking that it is one big joke.. self harm, which is a REAL mental illness is not a joke.
    And these girls need better role model to look up to. Justin Bieber? a role model to young girls? He's a joke.

    Nope! It was done for the lulz, and if someone is dumb enough to cut themselves because some douchebag pop star is smoking weed, then they deserve the Darwin award they will inevitably attain someday...and doesn't Twitter bar anyone under 13 years old from using the site? So if there are "children" on Twitter, then that's on the parents. I think people should be more focused on having an actual life and/or being proper parents rather than what's trending on Twitter.

    I get the impression that the fans that are cutting themselves are doing so not because Beiber is doing drugs but because they feel like they are part of something. The more publicity 'cut 4 Beiber' gets, the more fans are influenced to take part because of the attention they will receive. These fans are most likely pre teens who are ruining their lives because some overrated singer is smoking marjuana, they may not think so now but in a few years time they'll have the scars to prove it.
