Justin Bieber made a visit to the Anne Frank house in Amsterdam on Friday with his entourage to pay respects. It's not entirely clear, though, from what the Biebs wrote in the guestbook what those respects might be.
The staff at the house posted to their Facebook page that Bieber thought, well, you read it:
Yesterday night Justin Bieber visited the Anne Frank House, together with his friends and guards. Fans were waiting outside to see a glimpse of him. He stayed more than an hour in the museum. In our guestbook he wrote: "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."
Tonight Bieber will give a concert in Arnhem in the Netherlands.
The reactions and comments on the post were mostly astonishment and incredulity at Bieber's sense of self-importance.
Meanwhile, schools in Norway shifted their midterm schedules because of Bieber shows there, so maybe he gets the final word on these broader cultural questions now.
What do you think? Simply a goofy comment? Or bizzaro and disrespectful. Or both?
