Justin Bieber is currently receiving a ton of flak for a recent incident in which he expressed his hope that Anne Frank would have been a Belieber. Surprisingly, it appears that the hosts at the Anne Frank House were not particularly offended by the X Factor mentor’s statement. In fact, they thanked him profusely for making an appearance!
He may be an international pop star, but ultimately, Justin Bieber is still a 19-year-old guy, which means that he occasionally (okay, frequently) says and does stupid things. Such was the case a few days ago, when, during a visit to the Anne Frank House, J Biebs wrote “Hopefully [Anne Frank] would have been a Belieber,” in the museum’s guestbook.
This message shocked and angered much of the Twitterverse, but apparently, wasn’t really a big deal to the staff at the Anne Frank House. Later, a thank you to Justin was posted on the museum’s Facebook page. “The Anne Frank House was pleased to welcome Justin Bieber to the Anne Frank house last Friday. We think it is very positive that he took the time and effort to visit our museum.”
The Facebook post also mentioned that Justin Bieber stayed at the museum for well over an hour. Given the time constraints created by his super busy schedule, this long visit is certainly notable. But is it enough to make up for the Biebs’ faux pas? According to one of the museum’s reps, yes! The rep explained, “It wasn’t very sensible but he didn’t mean bad. He was very interested in Anne Frank.”
Does this statement reflect badly on Justin Bieber? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below!
