Bring Me The Horizon troll everyone, say they’re touring with Justin Beiber and Zayn Malik

Oli Sykes troll

Man, you’ve gotta love a good troll now and then. Like that time that guy claimed that his name was Phuc Dat Bich. Just good, lol-worthy times. Bring Me the Horizon‘s front man Oli Sykes is not one to miss out on the prankster fun, and slyly posted a BS tour poster claiming his band was supporting Justin Beiber on an upcoming UK tour. Hilarious no? Well, not everyone thought so. It’s all fun and games until everyone on Twitter LOSES THEIR FUCKING SHIT.

Oli Sykes troll

Tweeting from his fashion clothing line Drop Dead’s account, Sykes posted a tour poster featuring Beiber, with former One Direction member Zayn Malik and BMTH. The post was eventually taken down, but fans were quick to respond.

Beiber fans were besides themselves, while BMTH’s camp were equally confused and outraged. Seeing as both groups of fans are, or have the mental capacity of teenage girls, the reactions are more or less the same, but still hilarious. Meanwhile a third party of people just sat back and enjoyed the shit storm as it unfolded, as most of us would.

Following the initial reaction to the obviously fake tour poster, Sykes posted again to clarify the situation and make it known that he was in fact doing it all for shits and giggles.

Oh well, it seems the tour isn’t happening. Maybe Sykes can instead do as he did to Coldplay’s table at the NME Awards, but instead of kicking furniture he can kick Beiber in the head instead. Just a suggestion.

First seen on NME.
