Justin Bieber fans wage Twitter war with Drake Bell

While Justin Bieber has been waging his own wars -- against the paparazzi and radio DJs alike -- his fans have been taking his cue and engaging in a fight of their own.

The move comes after Drake Bell, the 26-year-old actor best known for his titular role on Nickelodeon's "Drake & Josh" in the mid-aughts, raised the ire of Bieber fans.

It began when Bell's Twitter account posted a message on June 2 slamming Katy Perry, resulting in her telling him off. But it seems it wasn't Bell who actually posted the offending tweet. The actor quickly replied, tweeting, "Someone must have hacked me while they were bored."

"I wouldn't randomly bash @katyperry," he wrote, adding, "Bieber however lol."

Unsurprisingly, Beliebers didn't find his joke amusing. One fan, Emma (@BieberGenerous), took it upon herself to speak for all Beliebers in an open letter she posted Saturday to Bell, who is now forging a music career of his own.

"I'm sorry, I can't here [sic] you over the 50 million fans screaming over Justin," it read. "Oh, and please call em when you sell Madison Square Garden in 30 seconds. Did I mention that he sold both shows in 30 seconds? Yeah, I would love to see you do that. While you had 19 years of career with one hit show, Justin had only 3 years of career with millions of fans, thousands of records, and albums sold. You know what's funny? Every time somebody mentions teh name Drake, everybody first thinks of Drake, the Canadian rapper. I think you're just mad that Justin's hair is worth more than your entire career. "

Emma saved the piece de resistance for the end, in which she wrote about "that awkward moment" when Bieber's private parts are more famous than Bell's career. Yikes! Remind us not to mess with Bieber's fans.

"Drakesters vs beliebers?! Crazy at least ours is spelled correctly ;)," Bell later wrote, in a tweet that has since been removed.

The Beliebers won this round.
