Here in the United States, it’s Thanksgiving week, where we put aside our differences and break bread with racist family members and awkward relatives. It’s a beautiful thing. But for Canadian pop star Justin Bieber, the only thing he’s giving down in Barcelona are thuggish meat hooks.
Bieber was caught on camera last night literally sucker-punching a male fan square in the lip, leaving the guy bloodied, surprised, and, frankly, a bit peeved. He almost got blood on his scarf.
The incident happened while Bieber was in the back of a chauffeur-driven car en route his show at Barcelona’s Palau Sant Jordi stadium, after he rolled down his window to get a proper glimpse of the assembled throng of adoring fans. But one gent got a bit too close. As TMZnotes in the video below, “a guy ran up to the car and stuck his hand in the window to touch him. Bieber responded with a quick jab to the face.”
Even the guy’s friends can’t believe it. The Daily Mailreports that local police are not expected to investigate the crime, “but the fan could issue a formal complaint.”
Bieber’s Purpose tour continues tonight at Madrid’s Barclaycard Center.
