While in the middle of legal troubles, Justin is remembering those who have stood by him through it all — his family, his friends, and his hometown. In two new messages, he shared how thankful he was for his dad, Jeremy and for his hometown of Stratford, Ontario.
Justin Bieber‘s dad Jeremy Bieber has been with him nonstop — from the night he got arrested when he was reportedly setting up the barricades to help his son drag race, to the night after he got out jail when they partied together. In a new emotional Instagram message, Justin shares just how important his father is to him, referring to him as his “superhero.”
Justin Bieber’s Emotional New Tweet: I Have The Greatest Dad
Justin took to Instagram to share a close up black and white photo of his dad wearing a Batman beanie. The caption read:
I have the greatest Dad in the world. He’s taught me how to love, learn, and stay true to myself. I will forever be grateful because he was my superehero #batman.
He also tweeted out how thankful he was for his supporters, linking to an article posted about how his hometown of Stratford, Ontario was standing by Justin.
“Never forget where you come from or those who supported you before anyone else. still the small town kid. thanks,” he tweeted linking to the article.
Justin Supported By Hometown
The mayor of Stratford spoke out on Jan. 30, according to the London Free Press, saying that everyone makes mistakes, and they’ll stand behind him.
“No matter what happens, it doesn’t negate the fact that Justin is from Stratford,” Mayor Dan Mathieson said. “As far as I’m concerned, he is a 19-year-old person who has made some errors. I don’t condone them, but I also understand that we all have made errors in our life. I hope for his sake that he can get a reset, and get back to music and doing what he loves. There are some sad people out there taking great joy in another person’s challenges, and I find that to be very disheartening. He is a celebrity, but he is entitled to some form of normalcy in his life.”
Northwestern Secondary School principal Martin Ritsma remembers the days when he was just a normal kid.
“He was an everyday, average young man then and, in my heart of hearts, he’s still that everyday young man,” Martin said. “We can put him under a microscope and judge, but that’s something I’m not prepared to do. As a young person, I made mistakes. I’m glad no one put me under a microscope. This is still where Justin grew up and if he walked through the front door today, he’d be a welcome young man.”
