Earlier it was Miley Cyrus who was declared "dead" by Internet hoax due to "drug and alcohol use" now it's her pal Justin Bieber's turn to fall victim to yet another satirical hoax. There are reports on various web sites that Justin Bieber, who was arrested for drag racing and drunk driving on Thursday, was caught masturbating in his jail cell!

Urbandlegends.com, a popular Web site famous for posting such hoax news and also correcting them, is showing a screenshot from a fake CNN news web site which shots two original mug shots of Justin Bieber along with the news headline, "Bieber Bond Set at $25,500 After Getting Caught Masturbating in Jail Cell." "Singer faces DUI, other charges," read the sub title.

The story is clearly a hoax and no legitimate web site is reporting such incident. The 19-year-old has been a second victim of Internet hoax after Miley Cyrus. The real CNN website has reported that the "Baby" hit maker was only in custody for simply an hour and did not go to jail at all. His bail bond money amounts to $2,500 and not $25,000 as the fake web site has reported earlier.

However the reactions to Justin Bieber getting caught masturbating in jail are more interesting than the news itself. Some people on various social media platform are saying that the news could have been actually true if the star spend some time in jail.

"Don't confuse me with the facts! I believe the story! LOL," writes Hanooka on t he web site Urbanlegends.com, where the story is published.

"Justin bieber was masturbating in jail ? Lol well duhh but that's hella funny," writes Paris France on Twitter.

"Justin Bieber got fined 25,500 for masturbating in his jail cell lmfao!!! #justinbieberarrested He's worst than Lindsey tho  lmao," writes Fabulous Nerdy on Twitter.

"How is Justin Bieber even an idol? DUI, racing then now caught masturbating in jail. Find a better idol people," writes Ashraf Emir on Twitter. It seems some people have really taken this fake news seriously. Maybe it was expected from the star? What are your views?
