FACEBOOK SCAM: 'Justin Bieber Killed 7-Year-Old Boy' Video

By February 8, 2014

Follow me on:

Breaking News: Justin Bieber did it again! this time his CAREER is over.. He accidentaly killed a 7-Year-Old Boy that was walking to school. DUI

Another rogue app is replicating across Facebook by enticing folks to click on a video supposedly showing Justin Bieber being arrested for killing a 7-year-old boy while driving drunk.

No such video exists. No such arrest took place. Users who click on the blurbs are asked to okay the download of an app that will access their personal profile, friend list, and email address. Needless to say, this is a bad idea.

Always think twice before clicking on lurid posts promising "shocking videos" of this or that (most often a "dead" celebrity, "amazing" discovery, or other newsworthy event that hasn't really happened). Never grant an application access to your friend list, profile, or other account info unless you intentionally downloaded the app and have good reason to believe you can trust it.

If you've inadvertently downloaded an app you don't want, instructions for removal are here.

We need proof to believe the bullshat that is being displayed. Don’t just write crap without any evidence behind it. No wonder this website is called urban legends.

Uh, Did you read the article? It’s telling you that the whole thing is a scam and as for Bieber being a good person, that he may be privately, but right now he’s acting like a jumped up little prick with no thoughts for anyone who loves him and I’m not talking about his fans who really just need to wake up – again that’s only some not the whole – but his family who have to witness this spiral first hand.

As for this fake story, I’m just surprised it’s not actually true.

Thanks for the warning Urban Legends.

You guys are all idiots. the post is telling everyone that the news is a scam… Unless you guys aare saying that you don’t believe that Bieber wouldn’t kill a 7 year in a traffic accident. As for “he wouldn’t do it”, never judge anyone you don’t know personally,. Just look at Operation Yewtree, who hoinestly looked at Clifford, Saville or Glitter and went “Yeah, they’re definately paedophiles.” Not a single person, it’s why they got away with it for 40 years.

Back to Bieber, the reason this scam has been working is because it’s believable, Bieber is known for being reckless on the road having participated in a street race and previously being arrested for a DUI. He may not intentionally kill anyone but any reckless driving can result in tragedy.

What a dumb article. The video clearly shows Bieber being arrested and charged with DUI. Plus – like 20 of my friends on Facebook posted links to the video. This is just another example of the left wing media trying to put a lid on the truth. Oh – watch carefully through the video — you can see him drinking while he is racing another guy, and then you see the poor little girl hit the windshield. If you know what you are doing, you can see the video without the malware.

It’s funny that people actually think this is true. It is just a matter of time that this is a real news story as there are confirmed stories that he speeds through residential areas.
