Justin Bieber’s Surprising Ally In Anne Frank Controversy
A note left by Justin Bieber at the Anne Frank House caused an international uproar over the weekend, but the people who should have been the most offended are coming to the singer’s defense.
The note in question allegedly read: “Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.” Yeah, we can’t believe he’d write that either, but all is not lost.
The Anne Frank House, an Amsterdam museum dedicated to preserving the memory of the young Holocaust victim, is speaking out in hopes of diffusing the controversy. “We think that what’s special is that a 19-year-old comes to the Anne Frank House and spends an hour visiting on a Friday night,” museum spokeswoman Maatje Mostart told AFP.
“He could be doing other things in Amsterdam, he was very interested,” said Mostart. “That’s more important than the commotion that we’re now seeing. That’s the positive side and we want to leave it at that.”
Truth be told, Mostart kind of has a point.
