Twitter is aflutter in #prayforjustinsgrandparents hashtags after Justin Bieber’s mom Pattie Mallette tweeted that they were involved in a pretty serious car accident. Bruce and Diane Dale flipped their car into a ditch Stratford, Ontario (Bieb’s hometown) and Bruce is suffering from four broken ribs. Kees Wijnands of the Ontario police confirmed that they were in an accident, and that the car rolled over, struck a tree, and then landed right side up. Wijnands said that the car was destroyed, but Bruce and Diane Dale are now doing fine.
She asked for prayers, and boy did Twitter deliver!
Some comments from passionate Beliebers who feel connected to Justin’s family:
@Bieber_Assassin: I seriously love Justin’s grandparents as if they were my own. Please #prayforjustinsgrandparents
@SpongieGomez: #prayforjustinsgrandparents just heard they were in a car accident and like justin said in his new song Everything Is Gonna Be Alright <3 There are about 9 billion other tweets along those same lines, but even non Bieber fans joined in with well wishes: @JessieNightfall: As much as I may dislike his music, I’d feel bad for anyone who’s grandparents were sick or hurt. Be mature and #prayforjustinsgrandparents
We wish Justin, Patti, Bruce and Diane the best and quick healing! Broken ribs are incredibly painful, but it sounds like they are overall doing okay and on the road to recovery.
Here’s a clip of Bruce, popstar Grandpa extraordinaire, at the Never Say Never premiere:
Dude speaks the truth: (To paraphrase) You should NEVER get on the wrong side of a Bieberess! So there, you CAN say “never.” Get better soon Bruce!
