In Defense Of….Sigh, Justin Bieber.

It goes without saying that I’m not a fan of Justin Bieber. He’s annoying, his music sucks, and he has a hairstyle better left to young lesbians. That being said, the alleged “assault” he suffered undoubtedly has more to do with some sleazebag trying to make money playing lawsuit lottery than it does with anything Bieber supposedly did wrong:

Justin Bieber was accused of assault Friday, by a 12-year old boy at a laser tag in British Columbia, Canada. The 12-year old said that Justin hit him while playing a game according to the initial police reports.

However, it appears that it was Justin who was on the receiving end of the abuse, as the boy repeatedly called the pop star “a f*ggot” and “put his hand out toward Bieber and Bieber pushed it away and left,” TMZ is reporting.

It all started when the 12-year old went out of his way to target the pop star repeatedly, ultimately cornering the singer and would not stop shooting him. In addition to breaking one of the cardinal rules of honorable laser battles (if there even is such a thing) the kid responded, “What are you gonna do about it [email protected]?” when a frustrated Justin told him “that’s enough.”

Contrary to news reports, Justin did not hit the boy.

A police investigation is underway, but Canadian law enforcement is said to have already concluded that Justin did not start the altercation.

First of all, if the kid called Justin Bieber a [email protected], in a better world, it would be perfectly legal for Bieber to backhand him out of his shoes. That’s probably about what would have gone down had the two of them not been in public — okay, this is Justin Bieber, so maybe not — but let’s put it this way: the kid is a little punk who DESERVED to be taught some manners the hard way.

Getting beyond that, if this kid’s father wasn’t trash, he’d be apologizing to Bieber and disciplining his son, not trying to get a payday. The fact that Justin Bieber’s rich and annoying doesn’t make it right for people to be rude to him or to try to make money off of him.

This whole thing reminds me of something that happened to Susan Boyle back in 2009. Two creeps decided to try to “wind her up” and it worked: she cursed them out. Then everyone talked about how Susan Boyle needed to learn to deal with morons like that.

That may be true, but we’re far too accepting of bad behavior like that in modern society. Whether it’s people taunting celebrities, protesting at people’s houses, or sending death threats on the Internet, we shrug our shoulders and say, “That’s how it is.” Yeah, but that’s not how it should be and the people who engage in that behavior should at a minimum be treated like the human refuse that they are.
