Justin defends himself after a reporter called him a ‘white trash prince’ for wearing overalls while meeting the Prime Minister. However, the Prime Minster didn’t seem to mind! Do YOU think Justin is ‘white trash’?
The gloves are off and the claws are out! On Nov. 24, Justin Bieber met Prime Minister Stephen Harper to accept the Diamond Jubilee award, and he caused controversy by wearing overalls. A reporter for The Daily Mail has since called Justin a “white trash prince” in an article, and the pop star took to Instagram to defend himself.
Justin received a lot of criticism for his choice of wardrobe, as Twitter users and bloggers attacked him for his disrespectful outfit, as he wore a backwards baseball cap and grey overalls, while the Prime Minister, on the other hand, wore a crisp suit. Daily Mail reporter Hayley Peterson wrote the article, where she called Justin a “white trash prince,” and condemned his choice of clothing.
Justin took to Instagram on Nov. 25 to defend himself, where he named the reporter personally. He said, “The pic of me and the Prime Minister was taken in a room in the arena where i was performing at that day. I walked straight from my meet and greet to him, if you “Hayley” expect me to have a change of clothes let a loan a suit at that specific time that’s crazy, It wasn’t like it was like I was going into his environment we were at a hockey arena. Wow am i ever white trash hayley peterson lol.”
Justin, 20, obviously thought meeting the Prime Minster in overalls was funny as he tweeted, “I met the Prime Minster in overalls lol.” However, he really didn’t find being called a “white trash prince” funny! The Prime Minister was not offended by Justin’s choice of attire, as he tweeted “In fairness to @justinbieber, I told him I would be wearing my overalls too. #cdnpoli #beliebers”. Ha, that would have been a funny picture!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should the reporter have called Justin “white trash?” Was Justin right to defend himself?
