Justin Bieber came under fire this week after allegedly stomping on two national flags during his show in Buenos Aires on Saturday night.
The pop star angered his Argentinean fans after a video surfaced of the 19-year-old allegedly using his microphone stand to mop the floor with two national flags during his show. The singer’s fans felt like Bieber was disrespecting their country’s flag which is actually illegal. So if Bieber is found guilty he could face up to four years in prison.
But on Wednesday night, Bieber took to Twitter to defend himself and to express his outrage over some of the comments that are being made.
“Heard about what is going on with me down in Argentina and im shocked. I love Argentina and have had some of the best shows of my tour there,” Bieber wrote.
“People throw stuff on my stage all show and I get it to the stage hands to get off so no one got hurt. That video I saw a bra and thought it was a shirt. I’m being told by my team it was a shirt but even if it was a flag I would never do anything to disrespect Argentina or the people of Argentina or the fans. ‘Im so sorry for anyone who took my actions the wrong way and I hope you can forgive this mistake.”
“So once again to the people of Argentina. I’m sorry if that was taken the wrong way and I’m sorry for my mistake. I hope u can accept this and I loved my time there performing for you and look forward to coming back. I gave my all and I know the fans did there too. te amo.”
