Pop star Justin Bieber was released on bail following his arrest Thursday morning in Florida for driving under the influence.

The 19-year-old was caught drag racing on a residential street in a yellow Lamborghini around four in the morning. Since then, the internet hass been abuzz with details of the incident, photos from his release from jail and celebrity reactions and we’ve got the run down for you.

Hours after his arrest, Bieber appeared in a Miami Beach courtroom via video where his bail bond was determined and set at $2,500. The superstar was set free later in that afternoon.

Leaving the correctional facility in all black, with his face hooded and wearing sunglasses, Bieber took a cue from his idol, Michael Jackson, and sat atop his black SUV and waved to fans before leaving. (Jackson did the same thing in 2004 after his child molestation court hearings.)

Bieber seems to have been acting out more these days and he’s apparently got loved ones and stars a like concerned.

Biebs’s manager, Scooter Braun tweeted last night that people need support and love during their struggles and we can only assume it is in reference to Justin’s current troubles.

Many stars are taking to twitter to share their feelings about Bieber’s actions (some celebs have shared their concerns, while others approached it with humour.)

Actor Matt Prokop even retweeted one twitter user who put the issue in perspective

Former child star Mackenzie Phillips has spoken out in concern. Phillips (who starred in the 1973 movie American Graffiti) spent her teenage years in the spotlight while suffering drug abuse and then going on to do 11 stints in rehab. Coming from experience, she has some advice for everyone watching Bieber’s troubles.

“The more people that laugh and giggle and make fun of a wasted celebrity who’s in handcuffs, the fewer people are going to go out and find recovery for themselves because that’s where they get their nods for behavior, what people are going to make fun of,” she tells People.

She is concerned that the flashy smile in Bieber’s mug shot is masking the fear in his eyes. “You can’t know what someone’s thinking … It could be absolute fear and terror, especially if he was still under the influence of whatever he says he was under the influence of.”

Teen stars breaking the law and heading on a downward spiral is nothing new to Hollywood. We just hope that Justin Bieber can get the attention and the help he needs from the right people and turn his life around before it’s too late.

On a lighter note, one thing the internet agreed on was how strikeningly similar Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus look. Here’s a gif for your enjoyment:
