Casey Heynes with Justin BieberRemember Casey Heynes, the bullied Aussie kid who made headlines when he finally body slammed his bully and someone caught it on video and uploaded it to YouTube? He was labeled a hero by many and nicknamed "Casey the Punisher" by his fans.
Well, Justin Bieber remembers him and the message that his self-defense retaliation sent to bullied kids everywhere -- and to their bullies as well hopefully! In fact, the Biebs made a point to let Casey know just how inspirational his story has been when his tour touched down in Australia.
Last night, Justin Bieber tweeted:

I'm sure it meant the world to Casey for someone as HUGE as Justin Bieber to recognize Casey's plight as a bullying victim and celebrate his decision to stand up for himself and what he believes in.
