Justin Bieber Apologizes For Honoring Murderous Japanese War Criminals

by at .  Updated at .

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!
