Kim Kardashian Twitter Scam: Justin Bieber Fake Phone Number Furies Fans!


Kim Kardashian has almost 11 million followers on Twitter but even her own fans turned against her this week after she scammed them into believing she had Justin Bieber’s phone number.

The tweet read:

“OMG I have @JustinBieber’s phone #!!!! 800-868-3402! CALL HIM! He’s taking calls for the next hour!!!!

Why would Kim pretend to have Justin’s phone number?

Dancing with the Stars fans may recognize the number in Kim’s tweet above. She pretended it was Justin’s number so people would make the call and end up (accidentally) voting for her brother, Rob Kardashian, to stay on the show another week.

Some of her followers expressed their outrage, tweeting back that she was “lame” and accusing her of “cheating” for her brother.

An insider told RadarOnline that “It is totally unfair that Kim did that. The other celebs on the show don’t send out fake information to trick people into voting.”

The controversy has gotten so out of control that “some of the contestants think that Rob should be disqualified for having his family cheat like that for him,” a Dancing with the Stars insider revealed.

Do you think Kim was out of line for tricking her followers into voting for Rob?
