Justin Bieber tweeted a letter of apology to Manchester fans, then deleted it
Just hear him out
Justin Bieber tweeted an open letter of apology to Manchester yesterday morning for storming off stage during his gigs last week, then deleted the post.
Bieber reportedly asked the crowd to stop screaming and be as quiet as possible during his performance and speeches between songs. When the crowd wouldn’t shut up he stormed off stage, reportedly feeling he couldn’t “connect with them.”
The tweet read ‘Tonight on stage. Thank you”, alongside a lengthy post.
Bieber insists “When people try to twist things and say ‘Justin’s angry at his fans. He doesn’t want his fans to scream’ that’s not at all what I was doing. All I was simply doing was wanting people to listen; to kind of hear me out a little bit … Certain cities aren’t going to want to hear me out, and you know, sometimes it’s my job to just say “Hey, I’m not going to try to force anything.”
Biebs reportedly told the Manchester crowd at the time of the incident that they couldn’t “handle it”, referring to his inspiring speeches between songs. Despite this he went on to assure us in his apology that he appreciated the fans, thanking them for “rocking” with him.
He said: “I just appreciate you guys tonight, listening to me and understanding, and rocking with me. You guys are truly amazing.”
Publishing the apology on Twitter, Bieber defends his decision: “If I didn’t use this platform to be the man that I know I am, and speak from what’s in my heart, then I’m doing myself injustice, and I’m not doing anybody in this audience any justice” before deleting the post the same day.
Bieber is yet to provide reason for deleting the apology. Perhaps we couldn’t handle it?
