This comes after police were called to Justin Bieber's house regarding the egging of his neighbours. Apparently, drugs were found on the scene and Bieber's friend, Lil Za, was arrested for possession. I'm not a fan of Bieber. Previously I didn't care much either way. He seemed like a 'mostly' harmless teen pop star. But, as of late, there have been various incriminating evidence about his poor behaviour. His attitude, too me, seems to be one of superiority in regard to most people. Cases of spitting on his fans, minor illegal activities and the list goes on. This kind of behaviour needs to be stopped which is why I applaud Padalecki for calling him out in 140 characters.
The thing about Supernatural though, is that the fans are a strange, rabid and loyal bunch. * One only had to go onto tumblr to see the numerous responses, gifs and fandom smack talk. And then there were the ratings for last night's (or the other nights...stupid international time zones...) show. The episode was, reportedly, the most watched episode in more than three years. Read here for more.
But that wasn't the last of what Padalecki had to say...
I'm SO sad to turn off the Beliebers.... However, at a maximum justifiable age of 7, they should be in bed right now. #Supernatural

Regardless of whether you like Supernatural or not, I feel that Padalecki's comments are witty and hold a small element of truth. Plus, they are pretty funny. But he is not the only Supernatural star to use twitter with ease.
Misha Collins, who stars as Fallen Angel Castiel, is a constant presence on twitter, often tweeting while the show is airing. This interaction between William Shatner and Collins highlights another reason why this show's actors are brilliant.
@mishacollins Can you follow me? I want to DM.

OK @WilliamShatner i'm following you so we can "DM." I don't think i've ever DMed before. What is it? Is DM similar to S&M? I'm excited.

@mishacollins There's a first for everything. Don't worry I'll be gentle...

Osric Chau, a new fan favourite, whose character, Kevin Tran, was recently added to the list of the dead of the show is another actor who constantly shows what it means to be a fan of the show. Similar to Collins, he live tweets the show and is a big presence at conventions and so on.
Anyway, I just wanted to show my support to Supernatural even though I cannot add to the the ratings due to living outside of the US. Plus, it's a freaking awesome show. Nothing like a good paranormal random, brothers unite, all over the place, show.
Peace and pancakes...
*I am such a fan. Well, we don't have rabies in New Zealand so...
