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?

Omg that is so racist!!! Obviously it's a monkey in blackface and emphasizes the stereotypes of giant lips/muzzles and large nostrils/noses!! That is racist! There better be backlash and not a coverup because he is popular and white. That picture is racist and what's he gonna do next, put a huge Afro and watermelon in his hands?? Shameful.
