Reps of the Anne Frank Museum are responding to critics and comments left in a guestbook by Justin. They describes Justin Bieber’s weekend visit as “very positive.”
The Anne Frank House was pleased to welcome Justin Bieber to the Anne Frank House last Friday. We think it is very positive that he took the time and effort to visit our museum. He was very interested in the story of Anne Frank and stayed for over an hour. We hope that his visit will inspire his fans to learn more about her life and hopefully read the diary.
The Anne Frank House spokeswoman, Annemarie Bekker said:
Justin Bieber is a fan of Anne and maybe Anne would have been a fan of his. We think he meant it well. He’s only 19 years old and living in a crazy world … with all girls being fans of him worldwide. Maybe that is also why he wrote it down.
Original story: Justin Bieber wrote an entry into a guestbook at the Anne Frank House museum in Amsterdam, saying he hoped the Jewish teenager who died in a Nazi concentration camp “would have been a Belieber” – or fan of his – if history were different.
The message triggered a flood of comments on the museum’s Facebook page Sunday, with many criticizing Justin for writing something they perceive to be insensitive. More.
