Earlier this month, Bring Me The Horizon frontman Oli Sykes shut down his personal Twitter and migrated to his Drop Dead clothing account.

This morning, Sykes tweeted a since-deleted tour poster of a supposed UK leg of Justin Bieber’s world tour, with support from former One Direction member Zayn Malik and Bring Me The Horizon.
As you can imagine, the internet responded with confusion and anger:

As aforementioned, Sykes has since deleted the tweet. “Apparently Zayn's legal team cant take a joke,” he wrote in a new tweet, “everyone can stop crying now, Bieber & BMTH won't be sharing a stage anytime soon.”

Notice his choice of words: He wrote “anytime soon,” not “never.” Would you go to a Bieber and BMTH tour? Leave us a comment with your thoughts.
