No matter what trouble Justin gets himself into, Scooter is standing by him — and his parents.
When Justin Bieber was drag racing in Miami, Fl., his father Jeremy Bieber allegedly helped set up the barricades. He was later partying with him after the arrest. So, now that Justin has been charged with assault on top of everything else, Twitter fans are bashing his parents for the way they raised him.
Scooter Defends Justin Bieber & Parents
Justin’s manager, Scooter Braun is not just going to stand by and let Justin’s haters talk about his parents. On Jan. 29, right before Justin turned himself in for assaulting a limo driver in Toronto, Scooter took to Twitter to tell the haters to “stop passing judgement.”

He also added a message asking fans to root for the good in people. “I ask people to be kind and hope for the best in people. not assume the worst. thanks,” he tweeted.
Prior to the tweets, he posted a quote from Plato that read, “Always be kind, for everyone is fighting a hard battle.”
It’s no surprise that Justin’s haters and even fans are bashing his parents — they are just wanting Justin to get help, like us and he needs to have the role models to do that.
Justin Bieber Charged With Assault
On Jan. 29, Justin had to head to Toronto — about 90 miles outside Justin’s hometown of Stratford, Ontario — to turn himself in to Toronto police.
The Toronto Police Service said in a statement:
It is alleged that on Monday, December 30, 2013 at approximately 2:50 a.m., a limousine picked up a group of six people outside a nightclub in the Peter Street and Adelaide Street West area. While driving the group to a hotel, an altercation occurred between one of the passengers and the driver of the limousine. In the course of the altercation, a man struck the limousine driver on the back of the head several times. The driver stopped the limousine, exited the vehicle and called police. The man who struck him left the scene before police arrived.
On Wednesday, January 29, 2014, Justin Bieber, 19, of Calabasas, California, surrendered to police at 52 Division. He is facing the following charge: Assault. He is scheduled to appear in court at Old City Hall on Monday, March 10, 2014, 11 a.m., room 111.
This is the fourth charge for Justin already this month — on Jan. 23, he was arrested and charged for DUI, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest without violence.
So HollywoodLifers — do you think Scooter was right to tweet to people to leave Justin alone? Let us know.
