Forget Hunger Games or Game of Thrones or any other “game” in which nerds watch people kill each other. There’s a truly epic battle happening online in which obsessive, pasty virgins can do more than just sit back and witness the carnage – they can help decide who comes out on top.
Justin Bieber‘s Beliebers have declared war on Lady Gaga‘s Little Monsters. At stake is the crown for king or queen of Twitter, which I would imagine looks like a bejeweled blue bird with hashtags for eyes (something Gaga probably already has in her wardrobe). The New York Post reports that an obsessive Bieber fan (Is there any other kind?) has launched a campaign to help Justin steal the coveted “most followers” title from Gaga.
“To all beliebers this is operation unfollow Lady Gaga,” says the number one Bieber fan. “Well here is the plan…it’s simple to look up Lady Gaga on Twitter. Next unfollow her. Simple.” With that, war was declared and the hashtag #OperationUnfollowGaga became an international trending topic. Little Monsters answered back with many calling the movement “pathetic,” but the damage had already been done. Based on the momentum it’s gained already #Unfollow could quickly help make up the two million follower difference between the two icons. Gaga and the Biebs, of course, could not be reached for comment, as they were too busy rolling around naked in piles of money and not giving a f*ck.
