Generally Rabid Beliebers No-Show In Lackluster Twitter Attack on Eric Dickerson
On Tuesday, we told you about former wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson's crusade against speeding pop stars in his Calabasas, Ca. neighborhood. Before long former running back Eric Dickerson had chimed in as well. Justin Bieber clearly picked the wrong men to speed by in his Ferrari.
Well, Dickerson tempted fate by staying on the subject:
Hey @justinbieber I use to have a white Ferrari too, but I knew the speed limit in neighborhoods where kids played. twitter.com/EricDickerson/…

HOO BOY. Here it comes. We've seen the ravenous army of Beliebers rise up to defend their hero against attacks from Drake Bell and Olivia Wilde, and they pulled no Internet punches when reacting to an unsuspecting reviewer's backhanded compliment. Dickerson's really gonna get it now, right?
Wait. What? That's it?
The response was much more benign than expected--only 11 Beliebers responded negatively, and their tweets weren't particularly venomous or creative. Seems a respect for the United States traffic code runs deep in the Belieber community. (H/T Mashable)
