Did he do it using a dick speaker? I bet it was a dick speaker.

Justin Bieber is being sued for $9.23 million by an Oregon woman who claims he recklessly created a sonic wave of tween screaming at a 2010 concert that permanently damaged her hearing. A scenario, which I’m going to be frank, sounds entirely believable to the point that I’d be willing to bet this woman is the first survivor to finally warn us of Justin Bieber’s power to create banshee armies at will. TMZ reports:

According to the suit, Stacey Wilson Betts took her daughter to see Bieber’s show in Portland, Oregon on July 14, 2010.
Betts claims it was incredibly loud inside the arena thanks to Justin’s shrieking fans … but Bieber made it MUCH MUCH WORSE when he climbed into a “heart-shaped aluminum/steel gondola” which was pulled out into the crowd (below).
In the suit, Betts claims Bieber “created a wave like effect of screaming by pointing into various sections of the arena. Then enticed the crowd into a frenzy of screams by continuously waving his arms in a quick and upward motion.”
Betts says the gondola acted as a “sound conductor creating a sound blast that permanently damaged both of my ears.”
As a result, Betts claims she now suffers from tinnitus … which causes a constant pulsing, whooshing shound that makes it hard to sleep.

JUDGE: Here’s the deal. We could all sit here and draw this thing out for weeks, or I can just cut to the chase and we’re out of here in 5 minutes. So let’s do that. Counsel for the defense, was the plaintiff exposed to your client’s music?
LAWYER: Yes, your honor.
JUDGE: Pay the woman her money. *bangs gavel*

    Uhm, shouldn’t everyone at the concert have tinnitus then, including Bieber himself?

    • No, different people have different physical tolerances. Also it can depend on a whole host of acoustic factors. One person might be fine standing close to an explosion, another might receive hearing damage from the sound of a hammer on a nail.

      It is unlikely, however, that a single instance of girl shrieking caused tinnitus. And even if it did, she should just do what the rest of us pogues do and put on some white noise to drown out the ringing.

    Her fault for going to a Beiber concert, it’s like walking into the worst part of town at night then complaining you got mugged!

  3. I don’t want to defend the little snot but apparently this mother has never been to a concert.

  4. Cock Dr

    I should probably sue Aerosmith for what they did to my hearing back in the 80′s.
    Damn that Tyler trannie and her banshee screams.

  5. Joey

    She shouldn’t have been at the concert then! She could have completely avoided it by not going… like me. I am all for people paying when they fuck up, but this is stupid. People take no accountability for their own actions, we always got to find someone to blame.

    Frivolous lawsuits – yet another beautiful part of Führer Obama’s America.

    You go to a concert, it’s gonna be loud. Doesn’t matter if it’s AC/DC or Justin Bieber. She knew what she was in for.

    • Candee

      You sir are a dumb ass .Frivolous lawsuits have been the norm for years .People like you just grind my gears can.t go any where on the internet without you dragging some political bullshit into something that has nothing to do with politics.

      • Rich

        Yeah? Obama said Trayvon could be his son. Obama’s a thug and he’s turning the courts into a circus. Just look at that one celebutard who asked him to waive her parking ticket and fire the cop who gave it to her.

      • Candee

        And what does any of this have to do with some dumb woman suing Justin Bieber? Go back to commenting on Faux News their all liked mind idiots such as yourself.

      • Rich

        Haha… do you think that Kim Kardashian would’ve became famous in Regan’s America? Do you think that Lady Gaga would’ve become a superstar in Bush’s America? Hell, could you even see those clowns being famous and role models in CLINTON’s America?

        Liberals are deluded and hypocritical – whenever someone disagrees with them, they start screaming and dogpile on the person. Yet they preach tolerance and acceptance.

      • Candee

        So Obama manages the careers of d list celebrities now ? Wow good troll job because no one could really be this stupid . By the way crappy music and untalented actors have been around longer than Obama has been in office One notable c list actor is your boy Reagan and hell people elected him to office

    • Mehrunes Dagon

      Tell us more about how lawsuits you think are pointless are TOTALLY the fault of Barack Hussein Obama and his Raging Lieberals

      Oh wait no, don’t. You’re probably one of those lunatics from bumfuck Oklahoma or wherever who’d believe it if someone told you that Obama has death camps set up to kill off all the white people. (let’s wait for him to post about that, guys…)

    Anyone attending a Justin Bieber concert deserves to suffer… but not as much as Bieber. As compensation award the woman (or a designated hitter) 5 minutes of batting practice with Bieber as the ball.

  8. El Jefe

    I don’t like the little douchebag, but I feel for him when he has to deal with assholes like this who are just out to make a quick back.

  9. “As a result, Betts claims she now suffers from tinnitus … which causes a constant pulsing, whooshing shound that makes it hard to sleep.”

    UPDATE: Lawsuit was thrown out after it was determined that her “tinnitus” was just her husband using a fleshlight next to her every night.

    What? I went to a Bif Naked concert in Canada and her sound system was so bad, I got Tinnitus and also significant hearing damage in one ear (and i was wearing ear plugs). It never occured to me to sue her because honestly, concerts are loud and also I get to feel cool by saying, “Bif Naked destroyed my ear drum.” I suppose it would feel less cool to say, “Justin Beiber destroyed my eardrum.” Hmmm, just typing that made me want to sue him (and punch him in the face repeatedly). So ignore everything i said before that.

  11. Randall

    Justin, ignore the haters and let your talent shine! Never forget who you are, an eternal flame like the gods or heroes of old.

    Remember, there’s a great big runway called “self acceptance”, and we are all clearing you for a landing!

    “Speak into the microphone.”

    Yea, that’s right.

    Guy’s got a lot of money, people know it, so he’s gonna get sued.

  16. anonym

    my ears bleed every time his music gets played anywhere.

    where’s my fuckin money ?

  17. Pat

    Obviously, you’ve never suffered tinnitus or you would be sympathetic to this woman’s suffering. WHY do concerts have to be so loud anyway? And, speaking of loud, why do movies have to be so loud? Maybe she didn’t know she would get tinnitus by attending the concert? Until I developed tinnitus (from a bad ear infection) I never knew or heard of it. How about holding the venue/entertainer responsible? You folks have no idea how difficult it is to live with tinnitus, to work, to sleep, etc. I hope she gets some kind of settlement. This would certainly send a message to concert promoters, etc. to turn down the sound system.
