Justin, I realize you want to flex your acting chops, but playing a teenage bomber who gets blown to bits is too disturbing for your fans … including me.
When you died in a hail of bullets on CSI‘s Feb. 17 episode, it had to be traumatic for your young fans who were lured into watching the show just because you were on it.
As 16-year-old Justin McCann, you were a disturbed young man raised by anarchist parents to become a bomber. You killed one person and then led your older brother to his death. To say it was playing against type is an understatement. The only similarity between you and Jason was your haircut.
Yes, you goosed the CSI ratings to 13.26 million. But was it worth it Bieber?
Think of your fans. Think of the tears — and I’m saying this seriously, think about whether this is really the right direction for your career at this time. Your fans don’t want to see you die violently. What do you say, Hollywoodlifers?
