The internet is officially losing it after Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes trolled the living crap out of everyone with a single tweet.
The singer, who relocated his personal account to his Drop Dead clothing account earlier this year, posted up a mockup poster depicting the UK leg of the Justin Bieber‘s world tour.
According to the since-deleted tweet, the Biebs’ tour support would come courtesy of former One Directioner Zayn Malik and… Bring Me The Horizon.
Naturally, the whole thing caused a right shitstorm, with both BMTH fans and Beliebers alike expressing confusion and outrage over the pair’s unholy alliance.
But the funny thing is, a Justin Bieber/BMTH joint tour may not be such an outlandish concept these days, as the UK band have confessed to enjoying the Sorry singer’s music.
“We don’t listen to extreme deathcore anymore,” keyboardist and primary songwriter Jordan Fish told Rolling Stone, prior to the release of their latest album, which heralded a new musical direction for Bring Me The Horizon. “We still like some heavy music, but I also like Justin Bieber.”
But Sykes has since plugged the internet meltdown, deleting his original tweet and posting a new one to remedy everyone’s darkest fears: “Apparently Zayn’s legal team cant take a joke,” he wrote. “Everyone can stop crying now, Bieber & BMTH won’t be sharing a stage anytime soon.”
Apparently zayn's legal team cant take a joke… everyone can stop crying now, Bieber & BMTH won't be sharing a stage anytime soon.

But please note guys, he said “anytime soon” and not “never ever”.
It’s not the first time that Sykes and co. have gotten up to some mischief of late either, after they trashed Coldplay’s table during their performance at the recent NME Awards.
Meanwhile, don’t forget Bring Me The Horizon are touring Australia this September. You can catch all their tour dates here (Justin Bieber probably won’t be supporting).
