Who could forget when Justin Bieber famously challenged action-hero Tom Cruise to a fight? It was utterly shambolic, right?
Well, it seems that the overly-confident star isn't backing down and has been nagging Cruise yet again to fight him. Read on to see what the Biebs had to say...
A classic Bieber move...
via: ShutterstockLet's be super honest with ourselves here. It's really not that much of a shock that Justin Beiber has taken to Instagram with an outrageous and ridiculous statement that's got everyone thinking... "what the hell?".
He's no stranger to online drama.
Bieber recently took a break from music.
He had no breaks from social media, however.The break in music didn't mean that Justin is off the map, of course. He certainly made his presence known via social media, and one Twitter rant stood out.
In 2019, he unbelievably challenged Mission Impossible actor Tom Cruise to an MMA fight.
I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you dont take this fight your scared and you will neve… https://t.co/KsGJQ003Mh— Justin Bieber (@Justin Bieber)1560126855.0
Everyone was asking the same question.Where on earth did this come from, Justin?
He seemed to be serious.The young and (clearly) ignorant singer even mentioned Dana White in his tweet. Dana White is the president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, which is the largest MMA organization in the world.
Could it be a religious matter?

Not cool , Justin...
via: GettyPeople were really confused about Bieber's decision.
Of course, Cruise is certainly a few years wiser than the immature singer.
via: ShutterstockPerhaps the most ludicrous thing about the call-out is the age difference. Fighting a man who is thirty years older doesn't seem like the best idea. It also doesn't help that Cruise is known to have done the majority of his own stunts in his movies, suggesting he's a pretty tough guy.
The internet seemed keen on the idea, however.Purely for the fact that people were dying to see Biebs get his ass kicked by the star.
People said it as it is.

It appeared that some really want this fight to happen...McGregor went about the situation in his typical outspoken fashion, claiming Cruise needs to be "man enough" to take on the fight.
And it didn't end there...

A bit too much testosterone, anybody?It was truly a strange time on Twitter.
But the story (sort of) continued.
