Justin made a ton of noise by making a surprise appearance during Chance the Rapper’s Coachella set on April 13, but what he was wearing created just as much buzz! The Biebs’ bucket hat quickly sold out online, but it also earned an enormous amount of hate on Twitter. So which side of the fence do YOU fall on?
Leave it to Justin Bieber to create controversy with a measly bucket hat. The singer donned a questionable outfit for his surprise Coachella appearance on April 13 — an oversized black shirt, long gray shorts, and a black bandana around his neck — but only his black and white Neff bucket hat really caught the public’s eye. The headwear quickly became a love/hate talking point after Justin took the stage, with many fans dissing JB’s silly look, while many others rushed to make as many online orders as possible.
Justin Bieber’s Bucket Hate: Love Or Hate?
The Neff Sultans Bucket Hat, described on the company’s site as “100% polyester” that “will keep you cool and shaded from the sun,” sold like hot cakes (is that something the kids are still saying?) after Justin took the stage in his. For a bargain price of $28, fans were clearly willing to pay a small price to steal the Biebs’ Coachella look, and the hat is now out of stock!
Which is pretty surprising, considering how many negative feelings the bucket hat also elicited. People are always looking to poke fun at Justin, and this outlandish fashion statement might’ve been the lowest hanging fruit they’ve ever had. Here are some of the meanest/funniest tweets we could find:
Anyone who thinks Justin Bieber isn’t going through a mental breakdown is clearly deluded. He’s wear a little girls hat for Christ’s sake!!
