Someone’s definitely getting a stocking full of coal come Christmas Day.
Justin Bieber was staying at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Perth, Australia when he poked fun at a fan for her curvier figure, calling her a “beached whale.” Who knew he was also a mean-spirited marine biologist!
A hotel guest, Helen Robinett, who was staying at the same hotel was near Justin and his crew while they were all sunbathing by the pool, recounted the tale to News.com.au:
“There were four young girls in bikinis. One girl who was gorgeous looking, with long dark hair and would have been about a size 14. Justin looked over at her and said, ‘What are you, Hawaiian or something?’ She said, ‘No, I’m not.’”
“Then he said, ‘You look like a beached whale’…The girl said, ‘Are you serious?’ And he said, ‘You should go on ‘The Biggest Loser.’…The whole pool deck heard him call this beautiful young girl a beached whale.”
“I made a complaint to the hotel, and they said the girl was OK and she was a Bieber fan. He’s nothing without his fan base. And he’s abusing them. The girl next to me said, ‘I can’t believe he just said that, he’s my idol.’ And I said, ‘Well, get yourself a new idol.’”
A spokesperson from the hotel refused to comment on whether there had been any complaints regarding the incident, one that would make this a new low for the singer.
