When Olivia Wilde tweeted about Justin Bieber, she didn’t expect to receive an onslaught of hate-tweets by the thousands.

But that’s exactly what happened to The Incredible Burt Wonderstone star, who said she received more than 17,000 hateful tweets after she chided the frequently half-naked popstar to “put your f***ing shirt on.”

“One of them was, ‘Are you a lesbian or are you too old?’ And it’s great, because it’s a question I never asked myself before,” Wilde, who is engaged to Saturday Night Live actor Jason Sudeikis, said about the tweets on Tuesday’s episode of The Tonight Show.

“This one was interesting: ‘Put your shirt over your mouth.’ Which, I’m assuming, is a Shakespearean insult.”

The 29-year-old also cleared the air about why she started the initial tweet, saying that it came from a place of love.

“It’s pretty much the funniest thing that’s ever happened to me because my Twitter feed is now filled with the most hilarious abuse.”

The Tron actress previously joked to CNN that Bielebers will most likely attack her following her tweet.

“I’m going to get attacked with acid. Someone’s going to throw acid in my face,” she said. “If that happens, there are 35 million Beliebers that did it. So find them.”
