A rumor circulating online states that Justin Bieber was stabbed outside of a New York City nightclub, and a gruesome photo is attached. Is this story and the accompanying photo real?
This didn’t happen. The story first appeared in December 2011, and resurfaced again in April 2012. Clicking the link will post the story to your profile and “like” the spammers page in an underhanded way to proliferate their scams.
The graphic reads:
(Video) – Justin Bieber STABBED By CRAZED Fan Outside N.Y.C. NightClub!
WTF – Cant blieve this happened extremely painful
The photo being circulated with the fake Justin Bieber story is at least a couple of years old. You can find it in multiple locations, such as here from 2010. Forums discussing the photo attribute it to an officer who was injured in a knife assault, and also a prisoner who was the victim of a knife attack. The origin is unclear at this point, but it definitely isn’t Justin Bieber.
What is certain is that if you click the link, you will become the pawn to a spammer, liking his page and posting spam on your own profile. Best advice is just to ignore it, and if you see it posted – drop a link to this article in the comments to shut them up!
