Patrick Carney has slammed Justin Bieber in a new interview with Rolling Stone magazine, calling the singer a ‘f***ing moron’ and a ‘f***ing irresponsible a**hole’ for encouraging his fans to cyberbully him over a statement he made about Bieber’s Grammy snub.
As ENTmania! reported last year, the Black Keys drummer had said that Bieber should be happy that his music at least is generating money for him instead of lamenting that he’s not winning any Grammys. In response, Bieber had then told his Beliebers on Twitter that ‘the black keys drummer should be slapped around haha’ – which set the stage for the bashing Carney suffered in their hands.
Carey back then made light of the situation by joking around on Twitter … but this time around, he was not smiling.
‘Justin Bieber, like a f***ing irresponsible a**hole, sicced 40 million Twitter followers on me because I paid him a compliment he didn’t understand,’ Carney said in the interview. ‘I’m saying that he should be grateful that he has a f**king career in music. And he shouldn’t be f***ing telling his followers to slap me, and then also be doing anti-bullying bullsh*t. It’s so irresponsible.’
‘I just started getting called a f*ggot, you know?’ he revealed. ‘All these kids who don’t know what they’re saying are saying all of these things that are actually wildly inappropriate. And these kids are just dumbasses.’
Carney wasn’t finished yet.
‘I mean, Justin Bieber is a f***ing moron,’ he continued. ‘And that’s the gist of what I was saying. And then he goes and says I should be slapped? Honestly, I feel bad for him. Every single person who works with him should f***ing be embarrassed… And honestly, I don’t dislike his music. I don’t listen to his music, but he needs to not conduct himself that way.’
‘Like, really, you make millions of dollars playing music, you should feel f***ing lucky.’
He then bashed Bieber for purportedly brainwashing his teeny Beliebers.
‘If you’re a 34-year-old f***ing loser like me, and you go on Justin Bieber’s Twitter account like a total pervert every time that he gets in trouble, you should look at his tweets the next day. It’s always like, “I love you guys so much, always believe, never stop believing”,’ said Carney. ‘He’s feeding them the Kool-Aid more and more. He pours it on heavy, though. It’s so manipulative! And whoever taught him that that was OK, whoever’s watching him and is like “that manipulation is acceptable,” should be really ashamed of themselves.’
