The feud between Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney and Canadian pop sensation Justin Bieber is hardly dying down. In fact, it got kicked into overdrive after Carney enraged Bieber fans by changing his Twitter profile picture and posing as the Biebs.
The Bieber and Carney feud began last week when the drummer opined that Justin didn’t deserve any Grammy nominations, telling a TMZ photographer that “Grammys are for like music, not for money … and he’s making a lot of money. He should be happy.”
Then Bieber responded on Twitter:
the black keys drummer should be slapped around haha

It probably could have ended there, but now the Carney and Bieber feud has been kicked up another notch. Carney changed his profile picture to an image of Justin Bieber, changed his name to “Justin Bieber” and set his description as “official twitter for the actual verified Justin Bieber DOS virtual buddy.”
Note: Carney is changing his Twitter name constantly. Right now, it’s “Pastin Bieber Carney.”

Unfortunately, the social prank seems to be backfiring spectacularly on Carney, who is getting tons of hate from Bieber fans (and even some from his own).
The Beliebers doth protest too much:

Followed by Carney’s fanbase:
Some do think this is all pretty funny:
How dumb am I for not realising Bieber was the drummer in The Black Keys all this time @patrickcarney

@patrickcarney has basically turned twitter into the greatest performance artist experiment of all time.
