Seeing as my presentation topic was about the Public Discourse of Celebrities I thought I would further that discussion on here. I'm not sure whether any of you have heard about this recent Justin Bieber scandal, where he visited The Anne Frank House and wrote in the guest book, "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber." There's been a lot of controversy over his statement, "Hopefully she would have been a belieber." While many people are ashamed and outraged by this statement others are sticking up for Bieber.
I just wanted to get your thoughts and opinions on this situation. Do you think that Justin Bieber went too far with that statement and was acting too self absorbed?
Here's a link to an article covering the scandal and some tweets from people and their opinions over the subject.
