#RIPpac: Justin Bieber’s dead hamster is top trending topic on Twitter

So, which makes you more sad? Is it the news that Justin Bieber’s pet hamster has died, or the fact that a dead rodent is the number one trending topic on Twitter in the United States?


To be honest, we don’t even know if PAC is actually dead. If so, old age seems to have been the culprit.

Perhaps it’s just the shock, but the fact that a hamster’s passing has drawn so much attention seems to have inspired some self-awareness.

    I give it until about noon Wednesday until the Justin Bieber/hamster urban legend spreads like wildfire on Twitter.

    If Richard Gere thought he had it bad back in the pre-Twitter days, he hasn’t seen anything yet.
