Justin Bieber likes Metallica. We know this. There is video of Bieber singing Metallica's "Fade To Black," and a few weeks ago he was on SpikeTV's Lipsync Battle performing Ozzy's "Crazy Train." Metallica even consider themselves Beliebers (their words!). He's also been seen hanging out with Anthrax's Frankie Bello.
Today, he appeared on the Ellen Show and I guess he talked about his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez and because this is society in 2015, the story was trending on social media, meaning people who likely don't care about Bieber are seeing photos like the one above of Bieber rocking a Metallica t-shirt.
Naturally, metalheads online are treating this like the apocolypse.
Justin Bieber singing "Sorry" on The Ellen Show while wearing a Metallica t shirt is probably the least metal thing to have ever happened.

Why is everybody so offended? Metallica shirts are everywhere! Are there not bigger things to be upset about?
