Twitter was on fire during the The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 9 with comments comparing Carl to Justin Bieber, even wishing death upon him because he seemed a bit too whiny for their liking.
Come on, though, people. Let's get real. Do you really think The Biebs could survive a day in the woods without his entourage and his collection of sports cars?
As we look forward to The Walking Dead Season 4 Episode 10, let's take a look at just a few of the situations that Carl has encountered over the course of the series.
Could Bieber possibly walk an inch in Carl's shoes? Years younger, Carl could still kick Bieber's butt. Here's how:
1. Carl Put a Bullet in His Mother's Head
Minutes after delivering his baby sister, and faced with two options: Mom as a zombie or putting a bullet in her head, Carl chose the latter. WWBD (What would Bieber do)? Faint.
2. Carl Grows Food
Carl can grow his own food to sustain life. Bieber would starve to death without his people to provide for him.
3. Under Attack, Carl Fights Back
Carl can wield a shotgun with purpose. He's not doing it to look cool, but to save lives. Bieber would probably blow a buddy's hand off.
4. Carl Mourns Asskicker
When he and Rick discover Lil' Asskicker is missing, they mourn. That's more courageous than hiding pain and feelings like Bieber seems prone to doing.
5. Carl Walks the Road
Carl doesn't need a slick ride to get around. Bieber would have dropped miles back, since he wouldn't have his wicked wheels.
6. Carl Brandishes a Pistol
It's not every teen who can responsibly use a firearm, but here Carl is again ready to clear a room of zombies. Would Bieber sing his way out of a jam?
7. Carl is Still a Kid
Everyone says to leave Bieber alone, he's just a kid. Carl's just a kid, but he's fighting for his life every day. Only one would last in the apocalypse, and it isn't the Biebs.
8. Carl is Cool Under Pressure
When Rick can't take down the zombie, Carl does it with a shot. What are the odds Bieber would remain calm without his entourage?
9. Carl Knows the Proper Use for Electronics
Awesome TV! These cords will work perfectly to secure the front door. Whoops! Bieber just fainted again.
10. Carl Leads Trouble Away
Carl leads unwelcome guests away from his exhausted, possibly dying, father. Somebody has to do it. Without a posse, who'd help the Biebs?
11. Killing isn't Easy for Carl
Even though killing's necessary, it doesn't make it any easier for Carl. It makes him sick. Being emotional is very cool. Being irresponsible isn't. Go tell Bieber!
12. Carl Reads for Relaxation
Knowing how infrequently he'll get the opportunity, Carl spends his free time with a good book, not a good boob like the Biebs.
