Look, in life we all say really stupid, off color shit sometimes. We’re just totally inappropriate sometimes and our words fall flat on the floor or maybe they’re even humorous at the time and we know that deep down inside if anyone who didn’t know us heard what we had said they’d be offended or at least think us fundamentally stupid or ignorant. When I heard this news about Justin Bieber these sentiments are what came in mind. While visiting the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam (Anne Frank as most of you know was a teenage girl who chronicled her time hiding from the Nazis during the Holocaust in her now famous diary.) Justin left a very distasteful comment in the guestbook.
“Yesterday night Justin Bieber visited the Anne Frank House, together with his friends and guards. Fans were waiting outside to see a glimpse of him. He stayed more than an hour in the museum. In our guestbook he wrote: ‘Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.’“
Worse than hoping she was a “belieber” as if that would actually suggest something pivotal to her character, him reducing her to a “great girl,” just seems almost comically diminishing. It almost sounds like he has no idea who Anne Frank is? More people were offended that he turned the achievements and tragedy of Anne Frank into something about him. I mean, shouldn’t he be looking up to this historical figure and not vice versa? A museum spokesperson, however, didn’t think it was that big of a deal, saying, “His comments were quite innocent. He was here for more than hour and interested in Anne Frank’s life and that for us is the most important thing.” I’m guessing he wasn’t sure what to write and just scribbled whatever passing thought came into his perfectly sculpted hair. I’m betting that this was one of those brain fart moments where logic and sensitivity seems to have escaped him.
