As I mentioned earlier today in GMN, Justin Bieber has been apparently falsely accused of beating up a 12-year-old during a lazer tag game. (STOP LAUGHING, YOU GUYS!!) First of all, even if he DID beat up a 12-year-old in this context, it might be forgiven because it was (after all) lazer tag. One of my favorite things to do during a heated lazer tag game is to run around tackling people, knock their guns out of their hands, and either strangle them or rub their faces in the carpet.
THAT BEING SAID! According to TMZ, Justin was not the instigator of this altercation, and it was actually the 12-year-old dickhead HOMOPHOBE who started it!
Sources say that Bieber became frustrated when the kid cornered him and wouldn't stop shooting and when Bieber told him, "That's enough" ... the kid responded, "What are you gonna do about it, faggot?"
We're told a shocked Bieber replied, "Excuse me?" Sources say the other kid responded, "You're a faggot" and then put his hand out toward Bieber and Bieber pushed it away as he left.
Contrary to several news reports, we're told Bieber never struck the other boy.
Sounds like nobody would have blamed JB if he had bitch-smacked that snot-nosed punk with a Lazer Tag gun. In a follow up story from TMZ:
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.
Could this mean that Das Biebs will post something on the It Gets Better YouTube Project?? OH, I HOPE, I HOPE, I HOPE, I HOPE!
In a somewhat related video, here's a person who says he's a Russian blowing holes in a Justin Bieber poster. I don't necessarily think he's a homophobe... but he's definitely a commie.
