A contingent of fans started an "#ignorejustinproject" trend on Twitter on Sunday night, vowing to boycott the singer online.
One person, apparently feeling neglected, tweeted, "if justin can ignore us bc of Selena we can ignore him."
Another called the performer "rude" for seemingly being less interactive lately and allegedly ignoring those who helped him rise to fame.
Of course, many more Beliebers also pointed out the ridiculousness of such a project, correctly noting that Bieber often goes above and beyond for his fans — and that they should want him to be happy.
Some pointed out that such anti-Bieber behavior is "immature," "ignorant," and "hurtful," with one fan questioning how other can suddenly ignores "their idol," "someone they [are] suppsosed[d] to love."
"Leave this fanbase if you actually want to do this. What the hell is this. This is so mean," wrote another loyal follower.
UPDATE: The "#ignorejustinproject" is now being countered by the "#supportjustinproject" and "ilovejustinproject."
