JUSTIN BIEBER CAUSES OUTRAGE OVER ANNE FRANK HOUSE VISIT – Mental note to Justin Bieber – ‘Open mouth, insert foot. Better not open in the first place’.
For those who don’t know; Anne Frank was a Jewish wartime diarist who managed to hide herself, and her family, during the Nazi occupation for no less than two years and keep a detailed diary of daily life of Nazi persecution.
Like so many souls that were lost to the Nazis Anne Frank and her family were betrayed by an unknown source, captured and sent to Bergen-Belsen concentration camp. Anne Frank died of Typhus in 1945 and on her father’s return to Amsterdam discovered Anne’s Diary.

Justin Bieber spent about an hour touring the museum and learning about her ordeal, Nazi occupation and the Holocaust. On leaving Justin Bieber thought it a good idea to leave a message in the museums guestbook and wrote;
“Truly inspiring to be able to come here. ‘Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.”
Soon after staff at the museum posted the comment on its Facebook page and Twitter and it wasn’t long before hundreds of comments poured in expressing their dismay and disgust over his egotistical presumption.
Twitter users didn’t hold anything back, calling Justin Bieber a ‘moron’ and a ‘douche bag’ and wondering how he could be so stupid.
The Bieber PR camp was soon to defend the star saying that people should understand that he is only 19 and didn’t mean any disrespect.
The PR team certainly has a point but on the other hand most assume Justin went to school and knows full well of the atrocities the Jews suffered at the hands of the Nazis. What Justin needs is guidance, or better yet an entourage that is capable of preventing his stupidity. The trouble is, as with most stars, it all goes to their head and they often feel above and beyond reproach of anyone else.
I doubt this will be the last time we hear about Bieber and his stupidity but as most teen pop idols generally have a certain shelf life hopefully it won’t be much longer before he slips into obscurity.
Before I go I wonder how his poor Monkey is doing, considering it was Bieber’s self inflate importance that he was untouchable, led to the incarceration of his pet. Maybe the Europeans will be glad to see the back of Bieber and hopefully take his pet with him upon exist.
