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.

This is pathetic. Seriously, getting in a feud with this little punk? It's funny because they both wear the same nerdy glasses to try to make themselves both look cool. They both suck.

All Carney did was answer some dumb pap's question. Bieber was the one instigating The Attack of the 12 Year Old Girls. If he were older and wiser, he would have just ignored it, and if an irate 12 year old fan brought it up - he could have just laughed and said "Yeah, it's true- I'm already rich enough and can do without a Grammy for now. Maybe in a few years... I've got plenty of time." Instead, he says something that makes all the 12 year olds think their idol approved of them attacking a guy they most likely never heard of before. Carney's response to it all is pretty funny, though.

I'm a fan of neither personally, I don't enjoy either artists music. It's quite childish what Carney is doing though, the man is 32 years old you would think he could handle himself with a bit more class. I will point out that Bieber fans are reacting just as poorly to this (most of them are kids though or just ditzy), they're feeding the troll right now and trolls like nothing better than to be fed.

Um am I the only one that thinks this is weird and ironic? I mean if everybody hates the Beib, why does it seem like they actually are jealous and like the Beib? Hell he has made me dance a plenty of times. I like him.

Not a Bieber fan, and his 'call to arms' of all of his fans was pretty stupid. That said, Patrick Carney comes off as an elitist prick.

Some pretty ****ty musicians have been honored at the Grammy's before. Music is music, whether you like it or not, so Patrick's comments were pretty smug. And seriously folks, rock music isn't all that hard to make.
