Justin Bieber’s Hook ‘em Horns moment sends Twitter into a frenzy

Monday was supposed to be a pleasant day for the University of Texas and Austinites. South by Southwest was going on, Rick Barnes had been named Big 12 Coach of the Year, and Charlie Strong was crusading for a rivalry rebirth – all was peachy. Then, out of the depths of the Frank Erwin Center, came a picture so horrifying it crippled Longhorn Nation: Justin Bieber throwing the Hook ‘em Horns alongside Barnes.

Unsurprisingly, the Twitterverse jumped on the photo immediately. After all, Bieber is America’s least favorite Canadian, and Rick Barnes is one of the game’s top punching bags. Below are some of the quick-witted and barbed-tongued responses to Ricky and the Biebs.
