Some users warned Justin of picking up a fight with Tom Cruise as the latter is known to perform all his high-risk stunts in his movies himself.
Justin, who is currently on a short break to concentrate on his mental health, hasn’t released any new album since 2015.
As his followers grew more and more perplexed about this sudden dare, many speculated that this was done to give Justin some added publicity.
The singer recently dropped a new single with Ed Sheeran and fans of the singer were quick to come to the conclusion that all this was a mere publicity stunt.
Other users were of the belief that Justin had seen one too many movies of the Hollywood thug and was just inspired by the adrenaline pumping scenes.
Soon after this tweet MMA fighter Conor McGregor jumped on the bandwagon and took to twitter saying, “If Tom Cruise is man enough to accept this challenge, McGregor Sports and Entertainment will host the bout. Does Cruise have the sprouts to fight, as he does in the movies? Stay tuned to find out!”
Tom Cruise is known as the daredevil of Hollywood and has most famously starred in the action series Mission Impossible, and Jack Reacher hasn’t given his comments on the situation yet but according to many people could easily beat Justin if needed.
This isn’t the first time that Justin has become involved in anything related to MMA. In an interview in Jan of 2012, he had compared himself to MMA fighter Floyd Mayweather Jr.
