Free gas is not worth this much!
Get ready Beliebers! Cuz your highness, Justin Bieber, has brewed a cup of controversy for himself. And it's HOT!
After he made the following comment in a Rolling Stone interview, the Congress of Native Peoples had to fire back.
First, here's what Justin said to RS:
"I'm actually part Indian. I think Inuit or something? I'm enough percent that in Canada, I can get free gas."
But the Congress of Native Peoples says it's simply not true. And then The Congress of Aboriginal Peoples chimed in with their unhappiness too:
"These kinds of remarks are another example of what Aboriginal peoples in Canada struggle with every day. It promotes the misconception that we are somehow getting a free ride. This simply is not the case and we are concerned that many people may believe what he said."
So naturally, internet commenters have taken to their soap boxes to bash the Biebs. It's so bad, we hear the Congress has urged people to take it easy on him.
Gas might be expensive, but so are offensive comments! Clearly!
