Justin Bieber's weapon of choice? Social media.

The 20-year-old pop singer continues to stir the pot when it comes to his scuffle with Orlando Bloom, with his latest dig at the star being another photo posted on Instagram. Biebs took to the popular picture-sharing app to taunt the actor with a close-up of Bloom apparently wiping a tear off of his face during a red carpet premiere. Oh snap!

J.B. didn't accompany the snapshot with a caption, leaving it up to fans to interpret the message he's trying to get across (although, it's pretty clear).

The photo was originally taken late last year during the Romeo & Juliet Broadway premiere. Bloom became emotional as he was comforted by his Juliet co-star Condola Rashad at the opening night and after-party in New York.

Well, if Orlando wants to fight fire with fire, he has some options to choose from too, but he may not need to. It seems like there are already some people backing him up in other ways.

A petition surrounding Bloom's blowout with Bieber has already been created asking President Barack Obama to declare July 29 "National Orlando Bloom Day."

"On a fateful evening this July 29, 2014 actor Orlando Bloom fed the Pop Music miscreant Justin Bieber a knuckle-sandwich on behalf of the entire civilized world," the petition read.

The two celebs nearly came to blows at Cipriani in Ibiza, Spain, early Wednesday morning, according to multiple reports. The actor allegedly took a swing at the singer after Bieber made a rude comment about Bloom's former wife, Miranda Kerr.

There are conflicting reports as to what exactly caused the incident, but at one point, a fight broke out. TMZ obtained and published the video early Wednesday morning.


"When they were back together again, Orlando threw a punch at Bieber. He just tried to pop him! The whole place cheered," an insider told Page Six. Meanwhile, a Bieber source said Bloom's punch missed: "There was no contact. He missed. Then there was some 'tough-guy shoving' and they were separated."

After the reports went public, Bieber took a strike against Bloom via social media by posting then deleting a photo of Miranda Kerr on his Instagram. The bad boy later tweeted that he was "keeping it positive." (Guess he had a change of heart.)
