It started with a question from TMZ, after the Black Keys won three Grammy awards: What did Patrick Carney think about the awards-night snub for Justin Bieber.

Carney’s answer: “I dunno, he’s rich, right? Grammys are for, like, music, not for money. … He’s making a lot of money. He should be happy.”

That’s when Justin Bieber took to Twitter:

He might have been kidding. But either way, his fans immediately went after Carney, who is engaging in a very funny and very sad back-and-forth with hardcore Beliebers right now.
