"WE MUST BE STRONG": The best Belieber reactions to Comedy Central’s Justin Bieber roast

As always, Justin's fans are rallying around him

Comedy Central has announced that their next roast will be of Justin Bieber, which seems like an odd choice. Bieber is a ridiculously easy target, and the past few years has been such a cavalcade of embarrassments -- the photoshopped bulge, the Orlando Bloom brawl, the bizarre incident with his pet monkey, the racist slurs, the assaults and the drag-racing, the countless other run-ins with the law -- that, at this point, ripping on the pint-sized Canadian feels a little too easy. As Comedy Central president Kent Alterman said, "Justin has been asking us for a few years to roast him, and we just kept telling him to go create more source material first. We’re thrilled he listened.”

But while most people view the roast as the viewing equivalent of being unable to turn away from a fiery car crash, the Beliebers — Bieber’s notoriously rabid fanbase, who have somehow weathered the storm that was Bieber's tumultuous coming of age — are rallying behind the star, whether that be congratulating Justin for his good sense of humor, steeling themselves agains the inevitable onslaught, or simply explaining what a roast means (turns out it's not as delicious as it sounds).
