What do Justin Bieber and Tom Cruise have in common? Nothing that we know of. That’s why we found it odd when Justin tweeted out a challenge to the Top Gun actor last night (June 9) on Twitter.
“I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon,”Justin wrote. “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?”
This leaves us and the internet with some many questions, like why? What had to happen to prompt Justin to challenge Tom. And does he want the fight televised? For money? And who is Dana White? Like we said, so many questions.
Well, Dana White happens to be the President of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). So does Justin want a televised UFC fight with Tom Cruise, who is 31 years older than Justin? We weren’t the only ones confused by the challenge. Fans took to Twitter to question the pop star.
“I think he just streamed Top Gun for the 1st time last night, and thinks Tom’s 26,” @MotownDR wrote.
“You’re calling out a 56 year old man lol,” @B_Nashty added.
@MatthewDahlen questioned Bieber’s sanity, “Regrettably, Justin is showing signs of Early Onset Irrelevance.”
Some insinuated that drugs might be involved. “Imagine the drugs that bieber would test positive for,” @HarolDog74 wrote.
And most comments were in favor of win for Mr. Cruise. “I think Tom cruise may be able to mess Bieber up,” @theodorebuttonz said.
“We don’t like your odds, Justin,” added @OddsShark
But it was @KevinLangue who said it best for all of us. “Did I miss something??” he wrote.
Our money is on Tom Cruise. “Sorry” Justin.
