Justin Bieber Monkey Art: Is It Racist?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Justin Bieber is already in trouble with the law for illegally defacing a building in Brazil this week.

And now he's also coming under fire foe what he actually drew on that building.

The 19-year old posted a photo to Instagram yesterday of him putting the finishing touches on a monkey with a nose ring, a lip stud and a necklace.

"This is my escape," Justin wrote as a caption, but critics see it as something far worse than that.

They believe the drawing has seriously racist undertones.

"Someone needs to deck him, seriously," wrote a Twitter user upon seeing this picture, while another noted that "he's trying to be Chris Brown," and yet another scolded him:

"Does he think we're all monkeys?"

Bieber clearly has made a lot of recent mistakes - stealing a bicycle from a security guard in Las Vegas? Really, dude?!? - but let's give the guy the benefit of the doubt here.

Do you think this monkey is a racist symbol?

Should his monkey have been wearing a suit and collar so it could be a white monkey.?

You guys are so annoying.. If Chris brown put up the same damn thing it would be him being a gangster..but since its Justin and he is white he's racist stfu I'm so tired of everything being "racist". Just like the thing with the costumes black person paints on white face= funny, white person paints on black face = racist.

I agree 100%... It's just a black monkey. Monkey's are black. And he painted it like that to be funny. People need to get a life and STOP making everything out to be racist.

That is very inappropriate. At first glance it looks as if it's supposed to depict a black. It's very inappropriate in these times because it depicts negatively on blacks. What if someone drew an urban chihuahua or urban panda?
