The Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney is having way too much fun with his Justin Bieber feud. Since telling TMZ that he didn’t think the pop star deserved a Grammy, he has drawn tweets from Bieber’s fans calling him all sorts of names, so he decided to change his Twitter handle to “Justin Bieber.”
As we previously reported, Carney told TMZ that “Grammys are for like music, not for money ... and he's making a lot of money. He should be happy.”
Bieber later replied on Twitter, telling his fans, “the black keys drummer should be slapped around haha.”
According to ContactMusic, Carney decided to fight back, briefly changing his Twitter handle to “Justin Bieber” on Saturday. “In order 2 give u guys full swag I have changed my stage name to Justin Bieber,” he wrote. “I luv all u! I need to get my beauty swag. Swag you guyz later! - Justin.”
He even tweeted a photo of himself with guitarist Dan Auerbach holding their Grammys, except he pasted Bieber’s head on his own.
