Justin Bieber Ends Up Offending All Of China In One Instagram Photo! But How Did He Respond?!

He's done it again!

First, his comments at the house of Anne Frank, his flag kicking in Buenos Aires, and now this?

Justin Bieber visited the Yasukuni Shrine while in Tokyo recently, and posted the above photo on Instagram.

Now, a lot of Chinese and South Korean fans are understandably mad because the shrine commemorates 2.5 million Japanese soldiers…including convicted war criminals!

Oh, hello face! Meet palm!

After sparking an uproar, Bizzle posted this apology:

"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. To anyone I have offended I am extremely sorry. I love you China and I love you Japan"

While we're pretty sure he did go to the site in ignorance of its potential to offend, he should definitely hire a world history scholar wherever he goes just to stop him from doing something like this again.

    Great for him to be honest and apologize. His apology is good except for the part where he says, 'I was mislead'. His apology would be much more genuine if he would have said, 'I misunderstood' - taking full responsibility instead of saying it was someone else's fault.

    Perez you'd better learn about Yasukuni before comment to Justin Bieber.
    You are the ignorant one who blindly believe China, South Korea and USA's propaganda!!

    Re: rosebud99 – I agree but I don't think he was blaming someone because he is there alone just with bodyguards, a friend and his mum. I think he meant he was misled by the appearance and the name of the building(it is actually a temple). Also when he met all those people inside, nobody told him what the temple was for.

    Perez do some damn homework!!! You are NO better than Bieber. Yasukuni has a RICH history. It is a HUGE shrine which commemorates the dead of ALL wars - even international - along with the soldiers who defended Japan throughout the centuries! It also does happen to house the ashes of 1,000 "war criminals" There are shrines commemorating children of war, dogs in war, war pidgeons, war horses at Yasukuni as well. China and SOuth Korea are up in arms about the shrine becaue of the war crimonals interred there and because of the controversial Japanese cabinet members who have visited the shrine - those who are "old school" and those who fight over the right to the islands china/japan/korea fight over. BTW Obama JUST visited the very same shrine.
    But Bieber is an idiot just thinking all shrined are sacred blessed places. KNow what you are posting about before you post. Then again there was that whole "sixteen chapel" thing and the Anne Frank museum….

    I honestly don't see what the fuss is about. It's a harmless photograph.

    Re: Masami – Well said. Anytime a Japanese politician visits the media jumps on it. Yasukuni commemorates all who have died because of war. It serves as a reminder to future generations. Those who create controversy when someone visits are part of the problem; they are instigating hate/fear.

    please like you even fucking knew what the meaning behind the shrine was either before bieber took this picture. maybe you should get a history scholar yourself you fucking fairy.

    Feeling you have to publicize every little cool thing you do is a disease, imo. Stop doing it. Save it for yourself, and save it in your head. Put everything else through a publicist if your career counts on you.

    Wow, see this is what happens when you become a child celebrity - you lose out on a basic education.
    "While in Japan I asked my driver to pull over for which I saw a beautiful shrine."
    And "I was mislead"…haha. Misled, fool. Sure, he's young, rich, and famous right now, but we all know that's almost over. When he's older, broke, and on "Behind the Music", seeming like a dumbass won't be so cute.

    I seem to recall how WE were all embarrassed when you and Teresita went to India and you posed front and center in 100's of shots, draped in chiffon scarves.

    So wait….Justin Bieber offended China by going to a war memorial in Japan? I dont get it. What allegiance does Bieber have to CHINA? Hes not allowed to honor the lives of fallen Japanese soldiers? Should he avoid AMERICAN war memorials to keep from "offending" the Japanese? We did drop TWO nuclear bombs on their country after all! If that isnt a war crime, i dont know what is

    Lol, he fixed it up quickly, which is A GOOD SIGN. He got bad advice probably; what's new.
    Now just for him and Selena, to move on, and for him to keep making good decisions, and correcting mistakes quickly.
    Only takes one small, good decision at a time. Step-by-step !
