The people have spoken! Following Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom’s shocking brawl on July 29, in Ibiza, Spain, the fans have responded and are calling for Orlando to be knighted!
Orlando Bloom, 37, and Justin Bieber, 20, caused jaws to drop when the two’s longstanding feud finally erupted resulting in Orlando even throwing a punch at the biebs. Now, fans are taking sides and are hoping to have a day named in Orlando’s honor, and for him to be knighted! Read below for all the details!
Orlando Bloom Knighted
While Justin is clearly beloved by millions, according to the New York Daily News, the majority of reactions following the brawl have been team Orlando.
Some have even gone so far as to call for the hunky Pirates Of The Caribbean actor to be knighted — we wonder if the Queen herself has any thoughts on the idea!
Orlando Bloom should be knighted for punching Justin Bieber. What a legend. Leonardo DiCaprio just stood there and cheered. Made my life 👌

Someone even created a petition on Change.org for July 29 to be National Orlando Bloom day — we must admit, it does have a nice ring to it!
The petition asks for President Barack Obama‘s direct action on making the day in Orlando’s honor. It reads, “This is something you, as the leader of the free world, must reward with an executive order declaring July 29 as a national holiday honoring Orlando Bloom. We compel you to do right by every civilized and cultured human being walking this earth by exercising your power for this most just of causes.”
So far the petition has only gathered a few thousand signatures, so we are sure it is not on the President’s radar just yet!
Orlando Bloom And Justin Bieber’s Feud
Justin and Orlando have had bad blood since 2012, when it was rumored that Justin and the actor’s ex-wife, Miranda Kerr, hooked up following the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. It was even reported that they exchanged flirty texts!
Miranda was quick to refute the rumors and released a statement with her lawyer claiming that the accusations were false. Unfortunately, Orlando and the stunning model filed for divorce in October 2013.
This strange love triangle became a square when Orlando was spotted hanging out with the biebs ex, Selena Gomez, 22. They were first seen together in March at We Day California — along with Seth Rogan who is known to not to be a fan of Justin’s.
Things then came to a head when the boys were at Cipriani restaurant. Reportedly, Justin intentionally bumped into the actor and made a rude comment about Miranda. That is when Orlando had enough, and threw a swing at the biebs.
Justin then kept things going by posting a picture of Miranda in an orange bikini — which he deleted soon after. Then a few hours later, he took another shot at Orlando by posting a picture of him crying to his Instagram.
This feud has been going on for far too long. Hopefully it ends here, and the boys can move on and make up.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Who are you siding with on this fight? Do you think Orlando should be knighted?
