Apparently, Justin Bieber said that. According to the internet, anyway (remember, sometimes the internet lies). Now, Twitter and Facebook and Reddit are all a flutter with Bieber suicide jokes.
Says @chapmanfamily (Singer of the band The Chapman Family): "If this Bieber thinking he's Kurt Cobain rumour thing is true I can't wait for his 27th birthday."
Says @AnthonyRaneri (from the band Bayside): "Unfortunately, if Bieber really is the new cobain like he says, we still have 10 more years until he's do to kill himself"
Says @Real_Hulk: "HULK HOPE JUSTIN BIEBER COMPARING SELF TO KURT COBAIN HIS WAY OF SAYING HE ABOUT TO SHOOT HIMSELF."

I have two questions:
Did Beiber really say it?
Is wanting a 16-year-old kid to kill himself (even if that 16-year-old kid is Justin Bieber) an appropriate response?
Work it out in the comments, if you'd like.
