Justin Bieber Just Took A Pop At One Direction And Fans Are Not Happy

We couldn’t Beliebe this.

Fans of One Direction are squaring up to Justin Bieber’s Beliebers as the singer has accused the boy band of deliberately using his album to get extra publicity.

Bieber has claimed that the lads are releasing their album on the same day as his new album in order to get press attention.

Bieber thinks the lads are trying to get more publicity. 

“They’re not really going on the road much, but we’re talking about them right now, so it gives them some promo, right?” Bieber said to Smash! a New Zealand radio show this week.

“So that’s probably why they did it… I think it was strategy on their part because my release date was first. But whatever.”

We wonder what One Direction think of that!

Both Bieber’s Purpose and One Direction’s Made in the A.M. will be released on November 13th and fans of both are exchanging some heated words on Twitter.
