Here's the TMZ post-Grammy story that got the ball rolling. Though the headline proclaims that Carney says Bieber doesn't deserve a Grammy, Carney doesn't say this directly. Instead, when asked whether Bieber should get a Grammy he says: "Grammys are for like music, not for money ... and he's making a lot of money. He should be happy."
Bieber replies on Tuesday.
And Carney really gets things going with a few emoticons.
Then he does everyone on the Internet a favour by curating the best replies on his own Twitter feed, with some snarky comments added in for good measure.
On to Wednesday, it continues.
Despite 34 million angry Twitter fans, not everyone was a hater.
