As further proof you shouldn't rely on Wikipedia to write your term papers, angry Justin Bieber fans flocked to the Interwebs Sunday night to take potshots at the Grammy-winner for best new artist Esperanza Spalding by vandalizing her profile page. We knew plenty of Beliebers were a bit unhinged, but man, some of these folks are downright insane.

Gawker says over the course of a few hours, additions to Spalding's page included mouth-breathers writing comments such as "JUSTIN BIEBER DESERVED IT GO DIE IN A HOLE. WHO THE HECK ARE YOU ANYWAY?",  "SHE IS F****** REATARD THAT NO ONE HAS HEARD OF SO B**** PLEASE DIE !" and "She now has the 2011 Grammy for being the Best new Artist! Even though no one has ever heard of her! Yay!" They also spent a lot of time writing in that her middle name was either "Quesadilla" or "Justin" -- all of which have been corrected, while the page was expanded, since she is, of course, the best new artist of 2011.

On the bright side, there seemed to be a lot of Bieber-haters defending her, adding notes along the lines of "HaHa Justin Bieber, you're just a little boy with no Grammy for Best New Artist.irehjbpojeh[ker" and noting she won the award by "beating out gay favorite Justina Bieber" (click here to read the editing notes). That's still nicer than a lot of racist things Beliebers were posting all over Twitter and Facebook. We can't condone that kind of thing, but hey, Biebs made more than $30 million for his 3-D flick Never Say Never, so who cares about a little statue of a record player?
