But it seems Beliebers are a crafty group of tweens. They have now righted the social media snub by capitalizing on a joke Justin Bieber made to TMZ: “I’m famous? I'm a celebrity? I didn’t even realize. ... My name’s Derek, I don’t know what you guys are talking about.”

And guess what? “Derek Bieber” became a trending topic on Twitter.
