Rumors are swirling online that NBA baller Blake Griffin "smacked the sh*t" out of Justin Bieber when the pop star began acting up in a West Hollywood Starbucks earlier this week. Although such reports might be fake, several non-Beliebers are now devout LA Clippers fans!

And Twitter fans are loving it:
@Ro1789: "Soooooo apparently Blake Griffin smacked Justin Bieber... he's officially in the top 10 NBA players all time."
@PrettyBoy_Davee: "Blake Griffin b*tch smacked Justin Bieber hahahaha."
@KillinTheComp07: "I woulda paid to see Blake Griffin smack Justin Bieber like the lil b*tch he is lol."
@d_banda11: "So apparently Blake Griffin slapped shit out of Justin Bieber today like damn homie's hand must have covered his whole face and neck haha."
@SPol23: "gonna choose to believe this Blake Griffin/Justin Bieber story just because that would be so f*cking funny."
@tylerlong5: "Yes, I know that Blake Griffin didn't really slap Justin Bieber. But it's real in my mind and that's enough for me."
@wes_chu: "Blake Griffin just slapped a pouting Bieber throwing a tantrum at Starbucks. I just became a Clippers fan."
@todd_calfee: "Blake Griffin my new hero."
@stefferonipizza: "if you think Blake Griffin actually smacked Justin Bieber, stop it. if you wish Blake Griffin actually smacked Justin Bieber, carry on."
@lslaton1509: "Blake Griffin smacked Justin Bieber to the floor... That's hilarious. It's about time it happened."
Social media is currently going crazy over this "Starbucks Bieber slap heard around the world." And Griffin's career is reaping the benefits because of it.
But as several fans point out, the fact that no video of the "violent" exchange currently exists online makes the story somewhat unbelievable. And wouldn't there be some sort of police involvement? And wouldn't have the Biebs or Griffin said something by now?
Anyway, it's still pretty funny. And the reactions are purely epic, so carry on!
