Brief Analysis
The claims in the report are false. Justin Bieber has made no such statement. The Twitter post is fake. The image used in the hoax is a digitally manipulated version of an original photograph depicting Bieber and Mahone kissing a young girl on the cheeks. The report originates from the fake news website Huzlers.com. The site claims to be satirical and nothing it publishes should be taken seriously.

Justin Bieber Admits To Being Bi-Sexual And Is Caught Making Out With New Boyfriend Austin Mahone

Justin Bieber Bi-Sexual



Detailed Analysis
According to a report that is currently circulating via social media, pop star Justin Bieber has publicly announced that he is bisexual. The report features a supposed screenshot of a Twitter post with an image featuring Justin Bieber kissing the singer Austin Mahone. The report further claims that the tweet was deleted only 30 minutes after it was posted.

However, the claims in the report are nonsense. Bieber has not announced that he is bisexual and the Twitter post and the image are fake. The hoax report comes courtesy of Huzlers.com, a site notorious for churning out nonsense designed as news. Huzlers bills itself as satirical and includes the following disclaimer at the bottom of its bogus news articles:

Huzlers.com is a combination of real shocking news and satire news to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief.

The image used in the fake report is a digitally altered version of an original photograph, which depicts Justin Bieber and Austin Mahone kissing the cheeks of Bria Williams, the daughter of rapper and Cash Money Records founder, Bryan 'Birdman' Williams.

Huzlers.com has been responsible for a string of recent viral hoaxes, including the claim that McDonalds uses human meat in its burgers, and that the developer of the game Flappy Bird has committed suicide. Nothing published on the site should be taken seriously.
