Justin Bieber's Twitter Hacked; Pop Star Gets Rid of Viral Tweets
50.2 million Twitter followers received a myriad of odd messages on Saturday (March 8), as Justin Bieber's official Twitter account was hacked with links to a viral app named ShootingStarPro.
With each hacked message reading, "Justin Bieber Cemberut?" coupled with a sequence of numbers, no meaning was found behind them, other than the fact that "Cemberut" is reportedly an Indonesian word meaning "sullen."
The 20-year-old's representatives responded quickly to the hacks, concerned about the possibility of viruses spreading to Justin's tens of millions of followers.
Taking to Twitter himself after the confusion, the "Baby" singer wrote, "That link from earlier. Don’t click it. Virus. Going to erase this now. Spread the word. Thanks."
After deleting his warning, Justin came back on to write, "All good now. We handled it," as "Justin Bieber Cemberut?" and "#JustinsPasswordIsProbably" trended throughout the globe. Glad you got it taken care of, Justin!
