Suddenly it's the late '90s and we're watching 'Celebrity Deathmatch' on MTV again except this time Justin Bieber is legit calling out Tom Cruise in real life and we're not even sure what's real any more.
It all started in the early hours of this morning when Justin Bieber tweeted the following out of nowhere in almost Trumpian style.
I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you dont take this fight your scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite ?
— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) June 10, 2019
Our biggest takeaway from all this? Bieber didn't tag Cruise and that's because he's a coward (or possibly just very good at getting attention when he needs it, or both).
Obviously, this level of gauntlet throwing down caused quite the stir, and some of the reactions are chef's kiss level good.

At some point tonight Tom Cruise’s agent will have to call Tom Cruise and tell him that Justin Bieber has challenged him to a fight, this is an actual conversation that will happen https://t.co/D4H9tG27cP

absolutely nobody in the world:
certainly no 25-year-old singers to 56-year-old actors who never really seemed to claim to do this in real life, just pretends in movies, nice and fun for us and for him too:

Tom Cruise would whoop Bieber’s ass with one hand tied behind his back. There I said it.

That 56-year-old could seriously injure Bieber if he wanted to. I’ve seen his stunts. https://t.co/xe6WTnvNc2

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. https://t.co/7gjx4RrerB

If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge,
McGregor Sports and Entertainment will host the bout.
Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, like he does in the movies?
Stay tuned to find out! https://t.co/TxsH9KUyFg

Can you imagine if Tom Cruise challenged a man 31 years older than him to a fight and what a pussy everybody would be calling him for doing so? Tom's 12 years older than your dad, Justin. WTF.

We don’t like your odds, Justin.

Tom Cruise is almost 60, were there no 80 year olds to pick a fight with? And BTW he'd still kick your *ss.

Justin Bieber challenged Tom Cruise to a fight, Kylie Jenner is having a Handmaid’s Tale themed birthday party, and Charlie Kirk is tweeting about “new info” on Hillary’s emails, so it’s a big day for useless rich white people who crave constant attention.

Justin Bieber calling out Tom Cruise for a fight on Twitter is both the most 2019 thing that could happen and the least surprising thing that could happen because that's just the crazy permanently-on-fire world we live in now.
