“As promised taking all fan phone calls TODAY at (888) 847 9869. Talk to u soon!” the superstar put up on his Twitter on Wednesday, April 1st.
But towards the dismay of his 36. 9 million-plus fans, callers were greeted with the TMZ tip line rather than Bieber’s voice. The pop star eventually took the tweet down, but it was up long enough for his followers to take pictures and spread it around the internet.
The number for the TMZ tip line was toll free, which means the bill for all the phone calls will be going to TMZ, which would make this a very expensive prank indeed.
The issue continues to be whether or not TMZ has a sense of humor, or will Justin Bieber be met with retaliation?april, Bieber, day, fool, fools, Justin, Paparazzi, paparrazi, prank, tip line, tmz, twitter
