Several people protested Justin Bieber's potential move to Atlanta Monday, but the so-called "protest" was just a hoax, CNN is reporting.

Most of the participants were mostly radio station interns. The Regular Guys, an Atlanta-based radio show, announced they were behind everything.

They made up a fake coalition and have been giving interviews to news organizations under false names.

In fact, the real Buckhead Coalition president says Bieber is welcome in the neighborhood, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

Bieber's camp has yet to confirm a move to Atlanta.
