Thousands of American girls have developed a crush on the Boston Marathon bombing suspect and are using social media to exonerate him.

The hashtag to FreeJahar, referring to 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, has been trending on Twitter and Facebook. One girl from Topeka, Kan., said she would get a phrase tweeted by Tsarnaev just a week before the terrorist attack tattooed on her body.

"Getting one of Jahar's tweets tattooed on me tomorrow. Guess you could say I'm a #FreeJahar supporter," @keepitbluntedd tweeted on May 7. The quote, tweeted by Tsarnaev on April 8, reads: "If you have the knowledge and the inspiration, all that's left is to take action."

The girl, named Alisha, later tweeted that she would postpone getting Tsarnaev's words tattooed on her upper arm, "out of respect of my family's wishes."

Alisha told The Post that she doesn't insist Tsarnaev is innocent because she has a schoolgirl crush. "Somebody needs to stand up for him, and not the little high-school girls who just think he's cute," Alisha said.

Rather it is her opinon that he was "just this pothead 19-year-old boy who didn't care." He couldn't be the bomber. "I don't see it," she said.

Twitter accounts have popped up under different handles asserting that the 19-year-old is innocent.

"Jahar boy of love & Truth Innocent his trail is the real test for American Democracy," tweeted freejaharlove on May 9.

The user Tsarnaev5ever tweeted, "Jahar is gonna go crazy in that cell alone with just a book ... I wanna send money to him ... Anyone have the address?"

Some users have tweeted under #FreeJahar referencing the latest reports that Dzhokhar's older brother Tamerlan was allegedly physically and emotionally abusive towards his longtime girlfriend Nadine Ascencao.

Lovenoh8Peyton asked, "Why do Muslim men treat woman so poorly? #freejahar"

To which _JaharSupport responded, "You're seriously the worst person ever. I feel bad for your kid."

Other users warned not to use the hashtag for crushes or puppy love. "If you think jahar is "hot" or something it's fine but don't tweet. keep it to yourself. that's the think that makes us look bad," Justice4Jahar1 tweeted today.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was captured and is being held at federal prison in Fort Devens, Mass., on charges of using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction.

His brother Tamerlan died in a shootout with police on April 19, four days after he allegedly set off bombs at the Boston Marathon killing three people and injuring hundreds. He left behind a wife and a 3-year-old daughter.

Let's not miss an opportunity to keep the public's attention diverted.

Thousands in love and this manages to come up with five....please....

I do not doubt that there are trolls and that there probably are many who follow along like Manson for the shock factor but honestly putting this news out there has little to do with reporting and more with smoke and mirrors.

Shakespeare said it best: "Young men's love lies not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes". Its the same for young women, apparently. :(
