For every woman who has ever touched Justin Bieber, there have been countless gruesome, emoji-filled threats targeting her, made by those fraught with Bieber fever, a truly regrettable affliction. So after model Lara Stone filmed this Calvin Klein commercial, in which the shirtless pair touched each other's muscles a lot, Beliebers took to Twitter, Instagram, other social media platforms to warn the new mom of how the commercial made them feel. Buried among the numerous F-you's on Stone's own posting of the campaign is one fan who advised Stone "Go kill yourself with a cactus," a rather unfortunate and botanically confusing suggestion.
Other Instagram comments include, "Back off bitch. He's mine," and "I should be there instead of yo bitch. Yo NASTY. JUSTIN's MINE." The words "Lara Stone" and "ugly" were even trending on Twitter at one point:
