Justin Bieber detained at LAX
Justin Bieber has returned to the U.S. after offending a ton of fans in China and South Korea last week. Only (other) problem: He’s been detained by customs officials at Los Angeles International.
Witnesses tell E! News that officials questioned the 20-year-old Canadian for at least two hours while his entourage stood around twiddling their thumbs. Bieber was also detained while traveling from Canada to New Jersey for the Super Bowl in February. In that incident, officials searched his private jet for drugs but didn’t find anything. TMZ reported at the time that sources said he could expect the same treatment every time he tries to enter the country.
As for offending all those people in Asia? The Biebs posted a photo of himself in Tokyo last week where he visited the Yasukuni Shrine. The shrine honors fallen Japanese that include 14 convicted war criminals from World War II.
People in China and South Korea were pretty peeved, so the singer issued the obligatory apology.
“While in Japan I asked my driver to pull over for which I saw a beautiful shrine,” Bieber wrote on Instagram. “I was mislead to think the Shrines were only a place of prayer. To anyone I have offended I am extremely sorry. I love you China and I love you Japan.”
This coming from the kid who said he hoped Anne Frank would have been a Belieber and kicked a flag in Buenos Aires. Ugh.
