Justin Bieber is in hot water AGAIN, this time for allegedly desecrating the flag of Argentina. This trip to South America is really not going very well for the young singer.
Video has surfaced in which it appears that Bieber “sweeps” the flag off the stage with his foot and microphone stand, which of course pissed people off, because people love being pissed off, especially at Justin Bieber. He says he didn’t know it was a flag because so much crap gets thrown on stage during his concerts and he was just doing what he always does.
“People throw stuff on my stage all show and I get it to the stage hands to get off so no one got hurt. That video I saw a bra and thought it was a shirt. I’m being told by my team it was a shirt but even if it was a flag I would never do anything to disrespect Argentina or the people of Argentina or the fans. I’m so sorry for anyone who took my actions the wrong way and I hope you can forgive this mistake.
People are even tossing around the fact that he could get one to four years in prison for desecrating the flag, but c’mon.
I find it amusing that Bieber’s in hot water for cleaning up the shit people throw on to the stage while he’s performing, but no one in Argentina seems to be mad at the dinks who actually threw their country’s flag on stage at a Justin Bieber concert. That’s far worse disrespect in my book. Amazingly, I have to side with Justin on this one.
