Nobody says "neener-neener-neener" like Justin Bieber.
Witness the accompanying picture of an apparently weeping Orlando Bloom that was posted by the singer on his Instagram page in the wake of their recent scuffle.
Because nothing screams "manly" like one guy calling another guy a crybaby.
Bloom, 37, allegedly hauled off on Bieber, 20, in the wee hours Wednesday at a fancy restaurant in Ibiza, Spain, for reasons that are unknown but very well could have something to do with Miranda Kerr, the actor's ex-wife.
The pop star ducked, Bloom missed and a bodyguard took the hit, reports said. Then the "Boyfriend" singer waited until just before midnight, local time, to go on the offense in a one-sided social-media slap fight.
The crying photo -- taken last September when Bloom got emotional at an after-party held the night of his "Romeo and Juliet" premiere on Broadway -- was liked by hundreds of thousands of Instagrammers within just a few hours of its publication.
It was actually the second scuffle-inspired picture the Biebs had posted, albeit the first that he didn't take down after only a few minutes. He'd put up a sexy photo of Victoria's Secret model Kerr, 31, shortly after the fight.
Because, you know, Justin and Miranda reportedly flirted a couple of years ago, when she and Bloom were still together. Which was not very long after Bieber's voice dropped. And it was the kind of flirting that had Kerr and her lawyer both adamantly denying that she'd done the nasty with the singer.
Bloom might be man enough to fight face to face -- but it looks as if Bieber is willing to fight dirty.
