Last week, we learned that Justin Bieber had canceled all meet-and-greets with fans for his upcoming tour.
The singer claimed that the sessions leave him "feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression.” Now, it seems Bieber’s fans might be feeling that way after finding out there are no refunds for those who already purchased VIP passes.
The super-fans who shelled out $2,000 for a chance to pose for a photo with Justin will instead receive the saddest consolation prize in history – the chance to pose for a photo with a cardboard cutout of the Biebs.
Yes, the fans were reportedly informed that they could only get their money back if they also forfeited their tickets to the concert.
The shows are sold out, so the fans’ only option was to keep their $2,000 tickets – which were good for the same floor seats that everyone else got for a fraction of the price, plus a photo with a 2D version of Justin.
Insiders say the VIPs are doubly pissed because Justin still makes time to hang out with other celebs backstage, such as hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, who was able to secure a post-show hang session for his daughter’s birthday.
Some fans are so concerned for Justin’s mental health that they’ve started an online campaign to encourage him to cancel his Purpose tour altogether.
For most part, however, they’re just justifiably angry.
