Don’t pretend this story didn’t need more sensationalism.
Somehow Justin Bieber getting in a tiff with a kid while playing laser tag over the weekend has turned itself into an epic media event that’s culminated with the recent anti-bullying trend garnering itself a new Canadian prince, according to TMZ:
Bieber was confronted by a 12-year-old boy at a laser arcade — and things got heated after the boy called Bieber “a faggot.” We’re told the boy repeated the comment and then put his hand out toward Bieber and Bieber pushed it away as he left. We’re told Bieber’s rep has told police this story and it is backed up by witnesses.
Bieber is telling friends he had no idea how hurtful these comments could be — but even though he’s a straight teenager, he now wants to take a stand against bullying and homophobia.
We’re told Bieber will be going public — probably within the next week — to lend his support to the anti-bullying campaign.
Setting aside the fact we now know where Michael’s spirit went – The body of a singing, dancing young boy who touches younger boys? Of course! – the important thing to remember here is that 16-year-old Justin Bieber was intimidated by a 12-year-old and wants to call that bullying. Don’t get me wrong, I sincerely understand where this movement is coming from, but I think there needs to be a point where everyone involves takes a deep breath before there’s a PSA on farting on the bus, the silent bully. Otherwise, I’m going have to wedgie these people and/or make them punch themselves. (It’s for your own good.)
