Everyone with an Internet connection has, by now, learned that Patrick Carney of The Black Keys spent his weekend trolling Justin Bieber fans. The feud between Carney and Bieber started when TMZ reported that The Black Keys drummer flippantly commented on Bieber's Grammy "snub."
Patrick was swarmed by fans outside Chateau Marmont when we asked if Bieber should feel snubbed -- seeing as how he didn't get a single Grammy nomination this year -- and he simply said, "He's rich, right?"
Then the Keys' drummer threw a major jab, adding ... "Grammys are for like music, not for money ... and he's making a lot of money. He should be happy.
You'll be surprised to learn that The Biebz couldn't let it slide. He fired back over Twitter, saying that Carney should be "slapped around." Cue full-scale Belieber Internet assault. Bieber's rabid fans began attacking Carney on Twitter. They spewed insults, told Carney to put things in a certain erogenous zone, and wished for his death.
Instead of, you know, being an adult who has better things to do than engage a pack of irrational tweens on the Twitters, Carney took this opportunity to change his profile to look like Bieber's. He sent out a link to a "world premiere" video that was actually "Recombo DNA" by DEVO. Then, it was feeding time for the trolls on Carney's account as he retweeted their vulgar insults and suggestions.
