An Ottawa radio station Hot89.9 FM is banning Justin Bieber’s music, in an effort to send him a message to “get help,” following his Thursday arrest on suspicion of DUI, drag racing and driving with an expired license.
The Hot 89.9 FM Program Director Josie Geuer said the campaign—dubbed #HotBansBieber—started Thursday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. local time.
We just felt like that was almost the last straw….we thought banning his music would be one of the only ways to sort of get his attention—perhaps the label, perhaps him personally.
We realize that a lot of them look up to pop icons like Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez. So it was our way of saying–especially him being a fellow Canadian—it was just our way of saying, “Look Justin, we really care. You’re not being a good role model right now, get some help.”
Geuer noted the campaign’s press release was sent to JB’s label with no response as of Friday (Jan24) at noon.
Should Justin go to rehab?

We here at The New Hot 89.9 love Justin Bieber for his hit music. What we don’t love is the way he’s been acting recently….
Thursday morning at 4:00am, in Miami, Florida, Justin was arrested and charged with DUI, resisting arrest, drag racing and driving without a valid license. Justin reportedly told police that he had consumed some alcohol, and that he had been smoking marijuana and consumed some prescription medication.
Well Hotties… desperate times call for desperate measures!
Starting now we are BANNING all of Justin Bieber’s music on The New HOT 89.9! The ban will not be lifted until Justin gets the help that he clearly needs.
Let Justin know you want him to get better and get back to making hit music.
