Oh baby, baby: Justin Bieber in a world of spit

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

TORONTO — Justin Bieber is un­der fire yet again af­ter al­legedly spit­ting over a Toronto ho­tel bal­cony while a throng of his fans waited be­low.

The 19-year-old, cur­rently in the city for two dates on his Be­lieve tour, was pho­tographed with friends stand­ing on a bal­cony at the ritzy Hazel­ton Ho­tel when he ap­peared to spit over the rail.

The same day, Bieber posted a video to In­sta­gram show­ing the gath­er­ing fans be­low.

The in­ci­dent has al­ready in­spired world­wide me­dia cov­er­age, with the U.K. tabloid the Sun de­vis­ing the creative head­line: “Justin Bieber in new spit storm.”

This isn’t the first time that Bieber, known for hits like Baby and Boyfriend, has raised con­tro­versy this month.

In early July, he per­son­ally apol­o­gized to Bill Clin­ton af­ter a video was re­leased that cap­tured Bieber uri­nat­ing into a restau­rant mop bucket and later us­ing ex­ple­tives to dis­miss a framed pic­ture of the for­mer U.S. pres­i­dent.

It’s not even among the first con­tro­ver­sies specif­i­cally re­lat­ing to the Strat­ford, Ont., heart­throb’s saliva.

Re­cently, he’s re­port­edly been ac­cused of spit­ting at a neigh­bour, a DJ and a woman at a gym.

Bieber plays the sec­ond of two Toronto shows on Fri­day at the Air Canada Cen­tre.
