The internet responds to Justin Bieber's 'Britt Medler' gaffe in glorious fashion

There's one less Belieber in the world and her name is Britt Medler. You might know her as Bette Midler.
Justin Bieber gave an in-depth interview to Billboard magazine dishing on everything from his relationship to his parents, the path to public redemption and those leaked nude photos.
After pictures of a nude Bieber walking outside his home were published, his father Jeremy tweeted his song congratulations on his son's physical prowess.
“@justinbieber what do you feed that thing. #proud daddy," he wrote soon after.
Iconic singer Bette Midler tweeted in response: "The biggest dick in this situation is the dad who abandoned his son."
And the youngest Bieber clearly took off offence to the comments, but not enough offence to know the name of the Grammy, Golden Globe, Emmy and Tony Award winner.
He told Billboard magazine: "This Britt Meddler. I don’t even know who that is, honestly. I wanted to immediately say ‘Who is this lady?’, but then I’m just fueling this negativity. I do feel the photo was an invasion of my privacy. I felt super violated. My dad made light of it, but I don’t think that’s sick and twisted. It was funny. Dads are going to be dads."
A fake account has already been set up in Medler's name and the real Bette Midler was quick to join in the fun.
