Justin Beiber banned in China for “bad behaviour”

The Chinese flock of Beliebers must be so disappointed but Beijing Culture Bureau is determined to keep the country clean.

In a statement posted on its website, the Bureau says Bieber is longer welcome because, “As far as we are concerned, he has engaged in a series of bad behaviors, both in his social life and during a previous performance in China, which caused discontent among the public.”

When a fan asked for an explanation for why China wasn’t included in the singer’s tour dates, the response was, “Justin Bieber is a gifted singer, but he is also a controversial young foreign idol,”.

All hope is not lost for Bieber’s Asian fans though. He will be making stops in Japan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore and Philippines as part of his Purpose world tour in September.
