Patrick Carney

ENRAGES Bieber Fans

with Twitter Profile

2/17/2013 5:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0217_patrick_carney_justin_beiber_gettyBlack Keys drummer Patrick Carney is on the receiving end of A TON of Twitter hate ... because he raised the stakes in his war of words with Justin Bieber by changing his Twitter profile pic to one of the Biebs.

You'll recall ... Carney ignited the whole thing last week when he said Bieber didn't deserve any nominations, telling a TMZ photog, "Grammys are for like music, not for money ... and he's making a lot of money. He should be happy."

Bieber fired back on Twitter, saying Carney "should be slapped around haha."

But now Carney has taken it up another level by changing his Twitter profile pic to Bieber, his name to Justin Bieber, and his profile description to "official twitter for the actual verified Justin Bieber DOS virtual buddy."

0217_patrick_carney_twitterCarney's handiwork has annoyed both his fans and Bieber's, prompting tweets like:

-- "I used to like you, but why are you being such a d**k?"
-- "do you even know how stupid and immature u look doing this. arent u like fifty?"
-- "do you know how f**king dumb your acting and how stupid you look lmao"
-- "Can we please have Patrick back?"

This is the whitest music feud ever.

ok black keys.. i was going to give you chance and wanted to like you. now, NO..when you win an award, you win it graciously, not bash someone who has already made it.. justin, if you're reading this, the best thing you can do is let him run his vomit, and just keep silent. obviously, you have more class!

I completely agree that lame ass Biebs is not worthy of a Grammy, and I love The Black Keys, but I seriously think Patrick should be better than wasting his time with the bratty, talentless child that is Justin Bieber.

Ten years from now, when Bieber has a receding hairline and looks "50, or something"; he will still be singing his teeny bopper songs on nostalgia tours.

Best way to deal with a guy like this is to ignore all of it provided that there are no physical threats etc. Justin and his fans responding to this is only feeding the fire. This guy is a bully. Patrick seems to be an insecure person mentally and financially and obviosly cannot control his thoughts. Do you really think that this guy is getting gratification out of this? He might be that is why a bully does what they do to feel better about their falures in their own life. Sad.

I see a lot of therapy in Mr. Carney's future. This is starting to border on obsession. Does he unconsciously want to BE Justin Bieber? He's changed his picture-- will he change his clothes and hair next? Makes you wonder.....

This is awesome. People come to tmz every day to bash Justin Beiber and other celebrities. Now that this guy is doing it he is a bully. And a pathetic loser. Thanks, Patrick, for holding up this giant mirror!!!

Justin Bieber fans are the same kids who listen to Barney the Dinosaur.

Bieber is a joke. Within 5 years he'll be on celebrity rehab. Within ten he'll be scratching his balding head and patting his fat stomach wondering what happened when all his little 8 year old girl fans grew up and moved on.

The Beliebers' parents need to step in and talk to them about how to behave, and Bieber's mother needs to talk to him about "slap slapping".

real artists/musicians do not trash others, no matter how bad, good, talented, or rich they are... got jealous?

Considering most celebrities get paid by how much traffic their site generates, I would say this is a brilliant scam. You can just type the names Psy and Justin Bieber on your web site and instantly increase your hit count.
