A devoted mega-Justin Bieber fan was just expressing her concern for the star when he accused her of being racist.
Refuting an Instagram comment (see below) from “iheartdabiebss” (real name Tatyana Burris) that said she feels Justin’s current entourage could be a “bad influence” on him, Justin told her to quit judging just because they’re African American.
“It’s not your place to judge,” Justin wrote in response to the comment. “God put these people in my life for a reason, and just because they are African American that makes them a bad influence?? These are the people that I love and all of us are going to help make the world a better place.”
After reading the exchange from both sides in full, a noticeable divide is evident. Nowhere does the fan mention or insinuate anything about Justin’s friends’ racial makeup, yet he jumps to the conclusion that she does.
It’s also worth noting that Tatyana herself is African American, so it's doubtful that she would have such prejudice towards Justin’s circle.
On her Instagram (which was private, but has since been unlocked in the wake of Justin’s riposte), she has updated her account with a new username @BrokenBelieber, so yeah, it's serious.
