This is not shocking news whatsoever. In fact, most pop culture observers anticipated, if not prognosticated, that something like a Justin Bieber bust would go down because he has exhibited reckless behavior and has allegedly consumed narcotics at regular intervals for the past few years.
So when Bieber was arrested in Miami Beach, Fla., for drunk driving, drag racing and resisting arrest after visiting the renowned strip club King of Diamonds in neighboring Miami, even the most faithful Belieber registered little surprise.
Social media, nevertheless, had a lot to say about the oft-troubled singer who has exemplified great growing pains — and about Bieber’s collection of hangers-on who orbit his world and have obviously not dispensed any valuable advice to the “Baby” singer.
Take a look as Bieber critics and fans spar with each other on Twitter:
Justin Bieber is going to jail to get more street cred for his new album. Already wrote “Scrambled Eggs” and “Public Urination”. #Beliebers

I’m sorry but I find this Justin Bieber thing so funny. I hate him. I’ve been waiting for this. It’s been a long time coming. -S
