Are you ready for the latest in the “Calabasas Speedway?” Justin Bieber was not driving the car that was doing speed laps through the neighbourhood. According to his buddy’s twitter account, it was “Me,” says Tyler the Creator.
Tyler says that Keyshawn was so busy seeing red the day of the incident, that he did confuse who was driving Bieber’s car as the burly former NFL star chased the duo down in his Toyota Prius.
Just this last weekend, Tyler got on Twitter and tweeted, “That Was Me Behind The Wheel Of Justins Vehicle.”
He also tweeted, “Don’t Blame Him. People Are Actually Evil Swearing Up And Down That It Was Who It Wasnt.”
Justin, who has yet to speak to the local Sheriff’s deputies to set things straight, gushingly tweeted back, “All good buddy. i deal with this everyday. thanks though. the baby aint mine either.”
Tyler’s obviously trying to take the heat off his little Bieber-buddy by claiming that it was he who shot Cock-Robin, or in this case sped through the local kid filled neighbourhood like he was responding to a five alarm fire. There is only one problem, he hasn’t told anyone else. Someone important, like…say…local law enforcement?
Tyler the Creator was aiming his little tweet of guilt at Keyshawn Johnson who had spoken with TMZ and claimed that he’d seen Justin in the driver’s seat as he was chasing him through the gated community, or as we like to call it, The Calabasas Speedway.
But while the tweet says Justin Bieber wasn’t driving, it was me, Tyler the creator isn’t talking to anyone else. It appears that this says an awful lot about the loyalty to his friend that, on Twitter at least, he’s willing to take the rap.
While Tyler’s message was clearly intended for Johnson, it seems he wasn’t the only member of the neighbourhood who saw Justin behind the wheel. But considering that the “Bieb’s” hasn’t been going overboard in the “winning friends and influencing his neighbour’s” routine; can you spell spit anyone? The other witnesses could be, perhaps, a little biased?
Earlier in the week, Keyshawn explained, in quite a controlled, but angry manner, that he was tired of TMZ bothering him about the whole thing. According to Johnson, they have been “hassling” him constantly since he spoke out about the “young boy racer.”
But Keyshawn is not the only former NFL neighbour who is upset at Justin and his using the gated suburban area as his personal racetrack, so is Eric Dickerson. Eric didn’t confront Bieber at his garage, like Keyshawn, but he did go onto Twitter, the same day and posted a rebuke about the 19 year-old’s behaviour.
I will point out that when Johnson approached Justin at his garage, Keyshawn did not experience the same “anti-social” behaviour that another of Bieber’s neighbours did when he complained. In other words, “Bieb’s” did not spit on him, as he is alleged to have done to someone else who had a moan about his driving speed. No, he rather wisely retreated into his house where his minders could look after him.
When Johnson was approached by TMZ who, he said were inconveniencing him, he told them, “As celebrities, we want our peace of mind. We try to get behind gates so we can enjoy our families and enjoy our lifestyles. But you got a 19-year old kid, feeling entitled, speeding up and down … then you got him spitting on people in the neighborhood–you can’t do that!”
Keyshawn also mentioned about the fact that little children play along the side of that street and that was what concerned him the most. He also pointed out, “Look man, I know the difference between a black kid driving a car and a white kid driving a car. [Bieber] was sitting in the driver’s seat.”
Johnson also went on to mention that he has “bi-racial” kids, and he definitely knows the difference between black and white.
But Tyler’s, five-days-after-the-fact, tweet claiming that Justin Bieber was not driving, it was me; means nothing. The tweet says that Tyler the Creator is willing to take the heat, on Twitter, but not in real life. It is a diversionary tactic. I’m pretty sure that the other “witnesses” weren’t seeing red nearly as much as Keyshawn was and they had no difficulty in telling the two lads apart. If Tyler was really the driver? Why doesn’t he speak to the Sheriff’s deputies the next time they come out.
