I suppose the mature thing may have been to just let things lie with Mariah Yeater, the woman who falsely accused Justin Bieber of impregnating her backstage at one of his concerts in 2010. But what fun would that be?
The Biebs was on a roll last night during his #RANDOMTWITTERHOUR. From random thoughts like, "Thank god madagascar 3 is coming out. Just didnt get the closure i needed with the first 2" to "did anyone ever find out who let the dogs out?", he was tweeting up a comedic storm. Then he let loose on Yeater:
"Dear Mariah Yeeter (sic) ...we have never met...so from the heart i just wanted to say..." and then he posted a link to the clip from Boratin which Sacha Baron Cohen taunts, "You will never get this. You will never get this. La la la la la."
Immature? Absolutely, but Bieber is only 18; and well, it was pretty funny too. Yeater had no business going after Bieber like she did, and for the most part he handled the whole thing with a lot more class than most people might. I suppose him taking the high road here would have been more admirable, but hey it was a Saturday night, and the guy was clearly bored. It's good to see him act like the teenager he is once in awhile.
The only part of this move that really bothers me is that it thrusts Yeater's name back into the spotlight, just when we'd pretty much forgotten she ever existed. We were happy speculating about rumors of his engagement to Selena Gomez, but now he has to go and bring up her name again. Even though he's mocking her, somehow I don't think Yeater will mind.
The biggest question remains, however: Did he mean to misspell her name or not? Either way, that's kind of the ultimate slam.
What do you think of Justin Bieber calling out Mariah Yeater on Twitter in this manner?
