About a month ago, Bieber decided to randomly retweet a random teenager's random review of his recently released acoustic album.
Not a really a fan of Justin Bieber but his acoustic album is actually good!— Courtney Barrasford (@Courtney_CB) February 3, 2013
But jealousy quickly gave way to rage as hundreds of Beliebers began inundating Courtney with death threats.
Eventually, demands that Courtney kill herself gave way to a rumor that she was secretly pregnant with Bieber's love child. Courtney said that got to her more than any other comments.
Courtney's mother Tina called the whole thing "silly," but also said it should be taken seriously. "I wonder if the parents of the 12-year-old know about what their daughter has been posting," she said.
