4Chan Sends Justin Bieber to North Korea

Well played 4chan…

Justin Bieber’s tour page has become the target of an internet joke.

A public vote on the Canadian singer’s My World Tour page asked users which country he should tour next, with no restrictions on the nations that could be voted on.

This spurred users of imageboard website 4chan to nominate North Korea, with the vote now turning viral.

There are now almost half a million votes to send Bieber to the secretive communist nation.

The contest, which ends at 0600 on 7 July, saw North Korea move from 24th to 1st place in less than two days, several thousand votes ahead of Israel.
