We know it might be hard to “Belieb” but China has had it with Justin Bieber’s unsavory behavior.
At just 22 years of age, he’s already been charged with vandalism for egging a neighbors house (despicable), arrested in Miami for drag racing under the influence, and faces possible arrested for painting graffiti on a cultural heritage site in Brazil, just to name a few of his run ins with Johnny Law.
The Washington Post reported that despite his gifted singing abilities, Beijing’s Culture Bureau said it was not appropriate to allow in entertainers who have engaged in “bad behavior.” They also added in their explanation that “Justin Bieber is a gifted singer, but he is also a controversial young foreign singer.”
His last gig in Beijing was in 2013 when he rocked “Beliebers” at the MasterCard Center, a venue that has recently changed its name to Huaxia Live. Following the gig, he was pictured having his bodyguards carry him up The Great Wall.
We are assuming that this news is partly a response to Justin Bieber’s recent announcement that he’ll soon be embarking on an Asian tour that will take him to Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
Bieber’s Chinese fans will be undoubtedly disappointed by the news; there is still some hope if the star learns from his mistakes and grows up a bit. The Bureau concluded that “We hope Justin Bieber is able to improve his conduct as he grows up and will once again find public favor.” So, we guess all we can say is “Never Say Never,” but as it stands, things aren’t looking good.
