jared padalecki justin bieber 'Supernatural's' Jared Padalecki responds to Justin Bieber backlash: I was just joking

Looks like the Belieber backlash was a little overwhelming — no surprises there.

After “Supernatural” star Jared Padalecki threw shade at Justin Bieber over allegedly letting his friend Lil Za “take the fall” for him in his recent drug arrest, the Bieber fans started attacking Padalecki on Twitter. Because, of course; what else do pre-teen girls have to do during the day other than harass celebrities online?

Padalecki revealed that he was shocked by some of the intense responses he’s been receiving by Beliebers when E! News caught up with him on the red carpet before the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards on Thursday (Jan. 16).

“‘I was like, ‘Uh, Justin Bieber’s buddies are gonna beat me up.’ It was like, ‘Don’t touch our idol!'” Padalecki says. “I was like, ‘I was just kind of sending a joke.’ I was kind of like, ‘Hey, buddy … ‘”

Some of Bieber’s biggest supporters even threatened to not watch Padalecki’s long-running CW drama, “Supernatural” … although those weren’t the worst threats Padalecki received.

“Listen, I have a world full of 12-year-olds trying to kill me,” Padalecki says. “So watch my back! We have people watching around for Beliebers.”

Beliebers, please calm down: You really don’t want to make a hunter angry. They handle guns on a regular basis (well, on the show, at least).
