Justin Bieber beating up a 12-year-old boy doesn’t sound likely, at all. But that’s what’s been splashed all over the news over the weekend, after the kid (we mean the 12-year-old, not the Biebs) claimed that Justin hit him at a laser-tag joint in Canada (which is, incidentally, Bieber-land). The debate also raged about whether the “hit” was accidental or not.
But this is Justin Bieber. Every fiber in our body believes that he is all things good and pure… like candy, unicorns and, erm, Kim Kardashian. TMZ confirmed our suspicions that the singer was innocent, revealing that Bieber was bullied by the kid and not the other way around. While that would normally make us kinda giggle (c’mon, it’s a little funny), what is definitely not amusing is the fact that the 12-year-old used some pretty hateful homophobic cusses.
The singer was doin’ his thang at the tag center, shown in the picture, when the kid decided to make his life hell. He kept cornering and tagging the Biebs constantly, which isn’t exactly gentlemanly in the first place. But when Bieber put his foot down and said, “That’s enough”… the response was shocking. This 12-year-old boy apparently said, “What are you gonna do about it, fa**ot?” WHAT. Oh NO he didn’t. Sadly, if the news is correct… he did.
And it didn’t end there because when Bieber, understandably thrown off replied, “Excuse me?” the little dude added, “You’re a fa**ot.” He supposedly reached out towards the Biebs who pushed his hand away and left.
What the frack? If the report is true it is disturbing on so many levels. Especially considering the fact that there has been a spate of suicides over bullying and gay-bashing all over the news recently.
UPDATE: Apparently, the police have concluded that Bieber was not at fault. It’s being said that the singer is going to to join the anti-bullying campaign (as early as next week, supposedly) because he feels people should know what happened and learn from the incident.
