Bieber criticised for his Anne Frank comment
Amsterdam: Justin Bieber wrote an entry into a guestbook at the Anne Frank House museum in Amsterdam, saying he hoped the Jewish teenager who died in a Nazi concentration camp “would have been a Belieber” — or fan of his — if history were different.
The message triggered a flood of comments on the museum’s Facebook page on Sunday, with many criticising the 19-year-old Canadian pop star for writing something they perceive to be insensitive. Calls made and emails sent to Bieber’s publicist and agent in Los Angeles weren’t immediately returned. Museum spokeswoman Maatje Mostart confirmed that Bieber visited Friday evening. AP
