Justin Bieber Apologizes For Honoring Murderous Japanese War Criminals

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Oops! Justin Bieber's bad!

Earlier this week, the singer visited the the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo, Tweeting a short message at the time that read "Thank you for your blessings."

However, Bieber was later informed that the shrine is not a holy place; it’s a spot where ex-Japanese military leaders slaughtered countless Chinese citizens during World War II.

In response, Justin quickly went into damage control mode.

"While in Japan I asked my driver to pull over for which I saw a beautiful shrine. I was mislead to think the Shrines were only a place of prayer," he Tweeted yesterday. "To anyone I have offended I am extremely sorry. I love you China and I love you Japan."

This incident comes about a year after Bieber also stirred up controversy by saying Anne Frank would have been a Belieber.

He may just wanna stay away from historical monuments for awhile.

Still, Bieber appears to be headed on a positive path.

He wrote online a couple days ago that he's learned so much over the past few months; he's back recording new music in an Atlanta studio; and things with Selena Gomez are progressing well.

We'll forgive the artist this mistake of ignorance. Especially if he keeps taking his shirt off!

I know your upset, but take in consideration the source. Justin Bieber is just uneducated. He probably does not even know there was such a thing as World war ll or even World war l. So then he goes somewhere and makes a fool of himself. Take a look at Beiber with comedian David Letterman on the David Letterman show. Bieber is asked about his tattoos. Letterman told him if he keeps it up he will start to look like the Sistine Chapel and Bieber replies he does not plan on looking like the sixteenth chapel. All you have to do is watch that video and you will have a better understanding why this Bieber kid says and does dumb stuff. So if your upset, just watch the video and I gaurantee you will get a chuckle.

As a individual human-being, I feel very sad and subdued, and even a bit anger after I read the news about the American pop singer visited the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo. Not because I'm Chinese, as a true believer of the humanity with social justice that should be to be justified and bring to justice, my concept of opinion is nothing about any political preference. The enshrinement at Yasukuni for 14 "Class A" war criminals from World War II, this political enchantment, is discussing and very inhuman. There are not just disrespect the civilians who lost their lives in the horrified war crime of massacre in china, south of Asian countries, even the common Japanese people who died in atomic bombing raids on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Same equivalence, what is that nazi Germany set a war criminal memorial monument for commemorating nazi crimes, so that what the western public opinions will be towards in. In today's media publications in the wast, especially Americans whom most are only serve their political interests, these have and always have to be that there are nothing to be for the truly supporting for humanity with the social justices and social democracy. We should always remember how nazi Germany had done for the human terrified destruction, but not their people who had also suffered from the horrified war crime in China and Asian. The attitude of western media publications have always be towards to that why your people aren't just forgiven that things had happened almost a century ago. You know why, because the western propagandas have to always keep Germany down as a whole for a threat in Europe and wester world, and have to always keep public opinions in check. I married with a western man, I love him with my life. But everyday I see how the general wester people in generals who are affected by the western propagandas, what their attitudes are towards to the controversial issues between the western and Asian powers in balance. I not say that are right or wrong, we all have our racial stereotype preferences, but one thing never or should be never changed the true humanity that lead us to civilized people who we are, not just the politics.

Justin bieber is being maligned again for no reason by haters and media. ellen DeGeneres once called him an American treasure who came from Canada and she is right. the sickos just keep coming out of the woodwork.

He has more respect for Japan than most Americans do. The only ones making a big deal are the anti Nieber writers of gossip rags and the usual haters. it was an honest mistake no one would notice unless it's Justin Bieber. His bodyguard confirmed his guide driver did not inform him on the nature of the shrine. Rihanna made a worse mistake in Malaysia and the media got over it.
