Olivia Wilde faces the wrath of angry Beliebers, laughs it off

Established hot person/actress Olivia Wilde is learning never to piss off Beliebers on Twitter after the tween terrorist organization bombarded her with somewhere between 17,000 and 35 million angry tweets.

Two weeks ago, Wilde chided Justin Bieber on Twitter during his now infamous London birthday extravaganza for his failure to dress appropriately. She wrote: “Bieber, put your fucking shirt on. (unless you lost all your shirts in a fire in which case my condolences and please purchase a new shirt.)”

She bravely recounted her traumatic experience on The Tonight Show, telling host Jay Leno that was she just concerned about Bieber since it’s so chilly in England. “It was mean spirited but they didn’t realize it was sent with love,” she joked.

Nonetheless, Beliebers were outraged at Wilde’s harsh (but caring!) criticism. She claimed “35 million” people responded to her.

“One of them was, are you a lesbian or are you too old?,” laughed Wilde, who is engaged to Saturday Night Live comedian Jason Sudeikis. “And it’s great, because it’s a question I never asked myself before.”

And it went on.

“This one was interesting: ‘Put your shirt over your mouth.’ Which, I’m assuming, is a Shakespearean insult,” said the perfect human being.

But Wilde isn’t too deterred by this teachable experience.

“It’s pretty much the funniest thing that’s ever happened to me because my Twitter feed is now filled with the most hilarious abuse.”
