Twitter Reacts To Justin Bieber’s Arrest: Stunned Fans, Mug Shot Art & RuPaul’s Drag Race Jokes

When news of Justin Bieber‘s arrest in Miami for DUI and drag racing hit Twitter, all bets were off. Stunned Beliebers did what they do best and immediately started a trending topic (#FreeBieber). They also loudly played down his alleged crime — arguing, somewhat dubiously, that their idol is above the law. However, the 19-year-old received less sympathy from other users.

The jokes came thick and fast. Most were relatively lighthearted (quips referencing RuPaul‘s Drag Race and Justin’s Miley Cyrus-tastic hair style) but #DeportBieber quickly became a meme and Photoshop enthusiasts had a field day with his mug shot. Twitter hasn’t been this entertaining since Beyonce‘s surprise album release! See a selection of the most deluded, hilarious and creative tweets after the jump.
