Argentinians are expressing outrage over the latest scandal to emerge from Justin Bieber’s Latin America tour through Buenos Aires, saying the way Justin treated the Argentinian flag shows he has no respect for his fans or the country.
Videos from Saturday night’s concert (Nov. 9) show how Justin reacted when fans tossed two Argentina flags onto the stage. Justin using his shoes and then a microphone stand to sweep them off the stage.
WATCH VIDEO BELOW:
Manager Scooter Braun tweeted that Justin will be back to Argentina. Insulting Argentina’s flag is a crime punishable by up to four years in prison.
Justin has taken to Twitter to say sorry after the country gets outraged that he brushed the flags off stage when fans tossed them.
Heard about what is going on with me down in Argentina and I’m shocked. I love Argentina and have had some of the best shows of my tour there.
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.
So once again to the people of Argentina, I’m sorry if that was taken the wrong way and I’m sorry for my mistake.
I hope u can accept this. And I loved my time there performing for you and look forward to coming back. I gave my all and I know the fans did there too. Te amo. I would never do anything to disrespect my fans. I don’t like having to defend myself but this time it was needed as I mean no disrespect.
So it is all love all around the world. Thanks, and to all the beliebers all around the world. I love you and thank you for always standing by me. Much Love to Everyone. Thanks
