Justin Bieber Threatened With Legal Action Over Twitter Prank Gone Wrong
The teen superstar tweeted a false phone number to his 19 million followers, causing two Texas residents to be inundated with calls.
Justin Bieber’s prank-loving ways will be celebrated this week on MTV’s Punk’d, but one recent stunt was not so well received by two Texas residents.
The teen phenom tweeted out a random phone number to his 19 million followers earlier this month with the caption “Call me right now,” but left off a final digit. According to TMZ, droves of teenage fans began guessing the missing number, leading to more than 1,000 phone calls to an older woman named Dilcie and a man named Kent.
The tweet has since been deleted, but the duo has teamed up with a lawyer to threaten legal action against the 18-year-old. According to the site, the legal team suggests that Bieber offer an apology in addition to concert tickets for Dilcie’s grandchildren, an endorsement of Kent’s current online project and money for any out of pocket expenses.
A representative for Bieber did not immediately return The Hollywood Reporter's request for comment.
