It was more or less just a chill Sunday night…until Justin Bieber decided to challenge Tom Cruise to a fight. On Twitter.
“I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you dont take this fight your [sic] scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite ?” Justin tweeted.
Confused? Yeah, so is Twitter-verse.
“Why Tom Cruise out of all people?” one fan asked.
“Am I dreaming or did Justin Bieber acc just call out Tom Cruise to fight him?” another wondered. “The simulation is glitching harddd.”
“Odd combination. Why is Bieber so angry with Mr Cruise?” a fan inquired.
It’s still unclear what prompted Justin to challenge Tom like that, but he also tagged Dana White, the President of the UFC. Does he legit want to fight the Mission Impossible star?
Dana and Tom have yet to reply to the Biebs’ tweet – but others are already offering their services for the potential match.
Like former UFC champ Connor McGregor, who offered his hosting skills. “If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge, McGregor Sports and Entertainment will host the bout,” he replied to Justin’s tweet. “Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, like he does in the movies? Stay tuned to find out!”
And director Kevin Smith, who offered some hilarious advice. “You wanna control Cruise in this match? 1) Don’t fight him on a couch: he can be bouncy. 2) Make sure you’re fighting the actual Tom Cruise, because he’s king of impossible rubber mask reveals. 3) If he slides into the Octagon in Wayfarers and undies, go for his parents’ Porsche.”
One fan countered his challenge with another challenge. “I wanna challenge user justinbieber to release his 5th studio album,” a fan wrote in response.
While other Twitter users seem to be choosing a corner.
“Tom is still in amazing athletic shape. He does all his own stunts. And he’s had so much more training OF ALL KINDS than Bieber,” a fan said.
“Tom Cruise was an all state wrestler in high school and has been training for over thirty years…You can’t eat a burrito correctly…Sit down Biebs,” one fan wrote.
“Justin Bieber is 30 years younger and (probably) 5 inches taller than Tom Cruise. I’d bet a large sum that neither man has been in a real fight in his entire life. And yet I would bet a larger sum that Tom Cruise wins this fight,” this fan shared.
“Beebe trains with floyd Mayweather..just sayin,” another fan pointed out.
“Again, Bieber has been in MMA training for a little while now. I think he chokes Tom out,” one fan surmised.
Stay tuned to see how this whole thing is gonna go down.
