Justin Bieber Offers To Be Aaron Carter's Hype Man

Is it too late now to say sorry, Aaron?

Aaron Carter may have "Beat Shaq" back in the day, but these days, he's trying to beat down his Twitter haters.

Carter, 30, has a new album out called Love that he's been promoting. Who knew?! His promo drive was temporarily halted when a fan on Twitter wondered why he had "never reached the level of success" of fellow, former child pop star Justin Bieber.

Carter responded by ranting on Twitter in a tirade that went on for more than two hours.

"I've been in this industry before he was born," he wrote in a tweet. "I've had harder times and always bounce back. No I'm not Justin Bieber I'm Aaron Carter." Carter continued. "I paved the way. These kids have NEVER paid me homage."

Twitter trolls bashed Carter for comparing himself to Bieber, including one who accused Carter of "using the Biebs' name to promote" his upcoming album. "Carter has done this before. *Yawns.*"

Carter fired back, pointing out that he's "gold in 10 countries" and his last single has "100 million streams."

I don't care if you do. I'm gold in 10 countries and 100 million streams on my last single released. And two top 40 radio hits off my new music. Nice try bud. I produce my music and write it too & direct my videos I sold 10 million records before that kid was born. 🤷🏼‍♂️🤦🏼‍♂️
