Patrick Carney has blasted Justin Bieber again — and this time, he’s also calling out Beliebers.

The Black Keys rocker slams Bieber in a new Rolling Stone interview, reflecting on the aftermath of what he thought was an innocent comment in February 2013 about how the pop star should be happy with his money, even if his music isn’t winning Grammys.

Carney was subsequently attacked by Bieber’s fans — and he unloads on them and their idol in the new interview.

“Justin Bieber, like a f*cking irresponsible a**hole, sicced 40 million Twitter followers on me because I paid him a compliment he didn’t understand,” says the drummer.

Carney explains, “I’m saying that he should be grateful that he has a f*cking career in music. And he shouldn’t be f*cking telling his followers to slap me, and then also be doing anti-bullying bullsh*t. It’s so irresponsible.”

“I just started getting called a f*ggot, you know?” the rocker tells the magazine. “All these kids who don’t know what they’re saying are saying all of these things that are actually wildly inappropriate. And these kids are just dumbasses.”

Carney was not finished.

He continues, “I mean, Justin Bieber is a f*cking moron. And that’s the gist of what I was saying. And then he goes and says I should be slapped? Honestly, I feel bad for him. Every single person who works with him should f*cking be embarrassed… And honestly, I don’t dislike his music. I don’t listen to his music, but he needs to not conduct himself that way.”

“Like, really, you make millions of dollars playing music, you should feel f*cking lucky,” says Carney.

The drummer then called out Bieber for brainwashing his followers.

“If you’re a 34-year-old f*cking loser like me, and you go on Justin Bieber’s Twitter account like a total pervert every time that he gets in trouble, you should look at his tweets the next day,” says Carney. “It’s always like, ‘I love you guys so much, always believe, never stop believing.'”

The rocker says, “He’s feeding them the Kool-Aid more and more. He pours it on heavy, though. It’s so manipulative! And whoever taught him that that was OK, whoever’s watching him and is like ‘that manipulation is acceptable,’ should be really ashamed of themselves.”
