Hey guys and gals, my friend Kayla Landis is trying to get a petition signed to stop the promotion of self-harm on social media. Here is her message:

 

"Hello everyone! I would really love if you could help me out. If you haven't heard, there is some disturbing stuff going on on twitter recently involving self-harm and the hashtag #cut4beiber. If you haven't heard of it, look it up, but I must warn you, what you'll find can be VERY triggering. For this reason, I have taken it upon myself to create a Change.org petition against Twitter in hopes that they will change their policy to not allow the promotion of self-harm on their website, much like Tumblr did recently. PLEASE HELP ME GET THIS OUT! I will be eternally grateful! I am sick of just sitting around while no one is doing anything. We need to take a stand against this disgusting "trend." It is harmful to so many people! Please help me share this petition and don't forget to sign yourself. My voice alone won't change anything, but millions of voices can move mountains!"


Hope and Love,
Kayla

Here is the link to sign the petition: http://www.change.or...harm-on-twitter

 

If you guys could help get this signed, it would be great.

 

P.S. Kayla is a HUGE Green Day fan. There. You shouldn't need anymore convincing. Thanks everyone!

The point is the hoax worked. Fans actually did believe it and cut themselves and post pictures of it.

Meta-hoax. 4chan come up with the hashtag, start posting pictures, then when everyone figures out it's not real, they come up with a new idea to pretend someone thought it was real and killed themselves, using fake accounts on a number of sites. Then blame 9gag. It worked because of the gullibility of the Bieber fanbase.

That doesn't make the fact that 14 year olds embarked upon self destruction less sad.

I just don't get it, why would they cut themselves for Bieber? I mean, he didn't ask them to, did he? He's not insane, isn't he?

He started smoking pot, no biggie. But someone on 4chan suggested that they should make the Bieber fans cut themselves to make him stop. Then it escalated and some people believed it and cut themselves.

Oh because smoking pot is the worst thing someone could ever do! I'm sick of all this hate towards pot, they should be happy he doesn't do coke or heroin.

At least they have a case they're committed to. the point is that kids hurt themselves, and that's bad in every way, shape and form.

Yeah you're right, people tend to forget that celebrities are also human beings, you shouldn't idolize any famous person because they are human, just like you.

I used to get drunk for Amy Winehouse, but I quit because nobody hashtagged me :(


Being serious for a moment though, this whole thing is horrible. The idea of a group of people creating some kind of hoax that might trigger kids into hurting themselves. Just horrible.

Done, no matter what the reason was for the Bieber thing this remains an important issue. The world is already a harsh enough place for people who genuinely suffer with self-harm issues, and the last thing they need is something like this making it even worse for them. Not to mention how this kind of shit triggers things.

 

It's irrelevant whether it was real or not, the issue is that self-harm should never be promoted or abused like this. And also that kids (who probably wouldn't have done it otherwise) harmed themselves like Ola said.

Those pictures exsisted already on the net and people added 'beiber fan' to them that is all. Yes its a issue but dont use a freaking hoax as the basis for it!

I never denied the hoax, I simply said that some people fell for it and cut themselves.
And I've always been a douche.

Self harming as a form of protest is wrong, no matter what the protest is

 

The fact this particular protest is aimed to stop a celebrity smoking cannabis is just utterly, completely insane

 

Something does need to be done, and I will sign this petition

Even if nobody actually cut themselves, it's still a good idea for websites like Twitter to ban things like this. It's an issue that shouldn't be thrown around in any way, hoax or not.

 

(no that isn't directed at anyone in this thread, I'm just saying)

Nor is there any evidence no one didn't. What's more likely though? Unstable teens not cutting for the guy they love or not?

Wow so your faith in humanity is non exsistant. Good for you. Frankly I think you just think these fans did fall for it simply because they are beiber fans. Give them some credit
