Justin Bieber showed up at last night's American Music Awards in a Nirvana shirt, and Kurt Cobain's fans got majorly pissed. It's weird how people seemed to like Bieber better when he was wearing nothing at all.
Upon seeing the band's "Heart Shaped Box" t-shirt and Biebsie's ripped jeans, social media erupted with angry tweets like this:
What would piss you off more: seeing Justin Bieber in a Nirvana shirt, or finding out Justin was born one month before Cobain killed himself, and thus it was definitely probably his fault? (Editor's note: sarcasm.)
I guess u can say nothing pisses me off as much as seeing justin bieber in a nirvana t-shirt.— jona (@CarasMofo) November 23, 2015
Yeah, Justin, you idiot. How would you feel if a really huge celebrity wore one of your shirts?
This is a total insult to Kurt Cobain & Nirvana . pic.twitter.com/Zox3ykT8jO— Alvarado Angeles (@SantiFedora) November 23, 2015
This shirt resurrected Kurt Cobain from the dead. Why you mad bro?
Kurt Cobain rolled over in his grave when Justin Bieber showed up wearing a Nirvana shirt— Ya boy Westin (@awestbarn) November 23, 2015
Agreed. There's no way Bieber heard any of the band's hit songs during his entire life. Plus this looks like more of a Spencer's purchase than Hot Topic, tbh.
Why is Justin bieber wearing a nirvana shirt name one song you white girl fresh outta hot topic— tweed (@Trumad_Black) November 23, 2015
Oh yeah, Courtney Love wanted some attention too, big surprise.
You're cool in my book @justinbieber xc— Courtney Love Cobain (@Courtney) November 23, 2015
Damn it, Biebs. Why don't you understand that you can't just wear a band's merch whenever you feel like it? If you want to wear a Nirvana shirt, then you have to be seriously freakin' hip. Like a toddler who lives in Brooklyn or anyone spending Black Friday at Target.
