Justin Bieber in Laser Tag Controversy
Justin Bieber has become the latest, and probably the most high-profile, victim of a homophobic bullying attack, as the teen pop star was reportedly called a “faggot” by another youngster during a laser tag match in Richmomd, British Columbia.
TMZ reported that a 12-year-old boy continuously targeted Bieber during the laser tag match even when the 16-year-old singer asked him to stop. Bieber reportedly said “that’s enough,” but the boy rudely replied by calling the “Baby” singer a “faggot.” “What are you gonna do about it, faggot?” the boy reportedly said.
Bieber was surprised by the boy’s reply and said, “Excuse me?” The boy again called Bieber a faggot, but the singer just walked away, said the source, who refuted some reports that Bieber hit the 12-year-old boy.
Police said the boy’s father filed a complaint several hours after the incident. Canadian authorities are still investigating the incident, but sources said that police are convinced that Bieber was the victim in the incident and not the instigator, contrary to what the boy’s father claims.
