Just when you thought Justin Bieber‘s week couldn’t get any worse. A new video shows the 19-year-old singer hurling expletives and himself — literally — at an overly aggressive paparazzo. The singer, who has been doing a series of shows at London’s O2 arena, was leaving his hotel when his security tried to fend off the particular paparazzo, who then began calling the singer a “moron” and told him to go back to America.
Obviously, Justin could hear the paparazzo’s insults, then opened his door and lunged himself at the photographer and said he would “f**king beat the f**k out of you.” It appears as Justin attempted to take a couple swings, but was restrained by his security team.
True to Justin form, he expressed his frustration on Twitter. The full statement reads:, “Ahhhhh! Rough morning. Trying to feel better for this show tonight but let the paps get the best of me… Sometimes when people r shoving cameras in your face all day and yelling the worst thing possible at u…well I’m human. Rough week. Not gonna let them get the best of me again. Gonna get focused on this show tonight. Adrenaline is high now. Gonna put it on the stage. Only way someone can break u is if u let them.”
We asked some of our Facebook readers what they thought of the incident, and here’s what some of them had to say:
Brittany A. – “someone insulted him, i would do the same thing. he’s only human.”
Terra G. – “Their brutal i can understand his reaction”
Athena K. – “He was only defending himself. Famous or not, he was in the right.”
Melissa Roisin H. – “Totally understand. The paparazzi’s language was absolutely disgusting. I’m so embarrassed to be British right now.”
Anna Cordelia B. – “i think people need to leave the poor guy alone. no other celebs are harassed as much as he is.”
What about you guys? Do you understand why Justin would get so frustrated? Or do you think he should have kept his cool? Keep the debate going in the comments section.
