Justin Bieber wants to speak out against anti-gay bullying after laser tag incident
Justin Bieber will likely be throwing his weight behind an anti-bullying campaign after becoming the victim of name-calling during a game of laser tag at a family fun center in Canada, TMZ reports. Of course, every single normal teenager deals with this everyday, but someone dared to call Bieber a "faggot," so now it's a global problem.
The site says Bieber was in Richmond, B.C., playing laser tag when a 12-year-old (yes, 12-year-old) boy kept targeting the 16-year-old singer. Bieber apparently told him to stop chasing him specifically, prompting the 12-year to taunt him, "What are you gonna do about it, faggot?". The boy then repeated "You're a faggot" and allegedly stuck his hand out, which Bieber pushed away as he ran off.
Since Bieber's a millionaire, that prompted a call to the police and an assault investigation at the behest of the 12-year-old's dad, who is a lawyer and obviously loves setting a good example for his homophobic son.
Several witnesses back up Justin's account and police have apparently not found the Baby singer at fault, but Bieber has apparently decided to join a national anti-bullying ad campaign to speak out about the 12-year-old's hateful comments. Apparently Justin didn't know how hurtful such a slur could be, further proving he's being raised in a bubble and has no idea what the real world is like. But what do you expect? He apparent;y doesn't know what hair clippers are, either.
