So Drake Bell (The irrelevant 2004 Nickelodeon actor-wanna-be-singer) has been fighting with Beliebers non-stop this month. Taking shots & throwing blows at Justin Bieber over twitter —
It all started on July 2 when Bell tweeted to Katy Perry that it was “ridiculous” for artists who have been around for five years to release biographical films. Bell was, of course, referring to Perry’s “Part of Me” which hit theaters on July 5.
The former “Drake and Josh” actor later attempted to put the issue to rest on July 3 by claiming that his Twitter account had been hacked, but not before tweeting. “I wouldn’t randomly bash @katyperry….bieber however lol.” Bieber released his autobiographical film, “Never Say Never,” last February.
That is when the floodgates opened.
For the past three weeks, Bell has been bombarded with tweets from angry “Beliebers.”
At first Bieber fans said things like “I hope you know bashing Justin aint gonna get you nowhere” and “like it or not Bieber is more successful than you and hes just 18.”
@DrakeBell when will you actually realize that Justin’s hair costs more than your house? burned.

When Bell began provoking them — i.e. offering Bieber guitar lessons — things got even more heated. One crazed fan tweeted Bell a photo of a very large kitchen knife, while another suggested they do something more violent:
The former Nickelodeon star responded to the vitriolic messages:
I haven’t listened to much Justin Bieber but his songs must be full of hate and rage because that’s what his believers are filled with..

Bieber tried to smooth things over by tweeting to his 25 million followers:
Drake and Josh was my favorite show as a kid. really.

This is my favorite cover story this month! It’s so funny because Drake Bell has been working hard for 8 years, and never got the Attention or publicity that he wanted.
So he’s just mad that a kid younger than him, who has been in the game for 3 years has just SHIT ON HIS Life lol.
It’s not Justin’s fault that your music is just Shitty Drake. The only gig you can book now a days, is a Shane Dawson video. You haven’t been invited to the TCA’s since 2004. No one cares anymore
