Just one day after Justin was charged with a DUI, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest on Jan. 23, he took to Twitter to thank his fans for standing by him and to encourage them to ‘be strong.’ Are you surprised by his positive tweet?
Justin Bieber first broke his silence after his arrest by posting a controversial Instagram photo comparing himself to the late Michael Jackson on Jan. 24. Thankfully his first tweet, which came later that day, is less provocative — though no less emotionally charged.
Justin Bieber Breaks Silence After Arrest — Singer’s First Tweet After DUI
It looks like Justin has finally started reflecting on what really matters to him. He tweeted on Jan. 24:
YOU ARE ALL WORTHY NO MATTER WHAT ANYONE SAYS >> BE STRONG GOD IS WITH US ALL> MY BELIEBERS CHANGED MY LIFE> I WILL FOREVER BE GRATEFUL
— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) January 24, 2014
Wow! Those are some powerful words from Justin. We hope this means his arrest was a wake-up call for him, and that he is going to start thinking about how his actions impact those who care about him — including his fans.
He also retweeted a tweet from one of his ever-loyal fans:
YOU saved my life and everyday i am grateful to YOU. Never change for anyone. You are an amazing kind soul @justinbieber

Justin Bieber’s First Instagram Post After DUI Arrest
This may be Justin’s first post-arrest tweet but it isn’t the first we’ve heard from him since he was released from jail on Jan. 23. After Justin’s court appearance that day, the 19-year-old hopped onto the top of an SUV outside the courthouse to wave to fans.
On Jan. 24, he posted the photo of himself waving, placed next to a pic of Michael Jackson, The King of Pop, waving to fans on top of his SUV. You may remember on Jan. 16, 2004 , Michael did this outside the Santa Maria Courthouse, after he plead not guilty to child molestation charges. For the caption, Justin wrote, “What more can they say”, with a crown.
Michael felt like a victim in court during the case, so Justin’s comparison showed that he was also feeling like a victim. Thankfully his follow-up tweet was a little more humble and self-aware.
So HollywoodLifers, what do YOU think of Justin’s tweet? Do you admire him for staying positive? Let us know.
