British man poses as Justin Bieber to get children around the world to send him sex videos

I mean, I figured girls talked about it with their besties around the lunch table as a thing they would do, because a 14-year-old girl would of course do anything to gain the attention of Justin Bieber, I mean come on, who wouldn’t?  But I didn’t think they would actually go through with it, and to think boys are doing it too, this is just weird.

Back when I was a kid, it was New Kids on the Block (NKOTB if you want to be a dick) that all the girls, and, I guess secretly, guys  were obsessing over and openly admitting that they would do anything (and I mean anything) to spend a day with the dreamy pop stars (guys were secretly admitting). Everyone had their own favorites: Joey, Donnie, Jonathan, don’t think anybody cared for Danny, and of course Jordan Knight. Jordan was top of the pops where I grew up. It seemed every girl wanted to marry Jordan and would do anything to be with him, but did they snap naked photos of themselves and then send it to him?  Were 14-year-old girls around the world faxing (pre-internet), or mailing naked photos of themselves or sending VHS tapes of themselves acting provocatively to these guys, in hopes of going steady? Does that ever work?

With that said, meet 35-year-old Robert Hunter of Middlesbrough, England. He knew this was a thing. He knew that young girls (and boys) would do anything to get the attention of a pop star, teen idol type. He knew it so well that he became one himself. Robert Hunter became Justin Bieber. Somehow Robert Hunter convince hundreds of young people on the internet that he was the real Justin Bieber. Robert was so good at being Justin Bieber online that he was able to convince hundreds of young, underage, girls (and boys) to send him naked photos of themselves, as well as having them perform sexual acts on live video chats as he would sit back in his masturbatorum and record the footage. He would convince the children to take their clothes off, in exchange, he would tell them, that they would be his new girlfriend (or boyfriend). Bieber’s girlfriend (boyfriend). Some of these children were as young as nine.

Robert, pretending to be Bieber, targeted children all across the globe including the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Serbia, Asia and Canada. When his victims refused to adhere to his request to get sexual Robert would threaten them with blackmail. In one case, a 12-year-old girl refusal to take her clothes off lead Robert to post indecent photos of the girl on Facebook along with her home address and phone number. The 12-year old girl slashed her own arms.

Robert Hunter was finally caught after a young girl from Tasmania notified the authorities. With the cooperation of Interpol and the authorities of nations worldwide more victims were found. 800 videos of homemade child pornography was found at Robert Hunter’s home. He was charged with 15 counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and 14 counts of making indecent photos. Robert pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 14 years in prison.
