Too late now to say he’s sorry? Justin Bieber apologized to his fans in an open letter on Oct. 30 — one which he quickly deleted — after he dropped the mic and left the stage at a concert in Manchester. Lucky for you, we have the apology, and the details, here.
Justin Bieber, 22, penned an open letter on Oct. 30, in which he apologized for letting his fans down, after he got angry and stormed off stage during a show on Oct. 23.
“People tend to want to shut you down,” the pop star wrote in a now-deleted tweet with the caption, “Tonight on stage.”
He continued, “What I mean by that is … people try to twist things, some people don’t want to listen. But I simply feel like, if I didn’t use this platform to say how I truly feel, and if I didn’t use this platform to be the man that I know I am, and speak from what’s in my heart, then I’m doing myself injustice, and I’m not doing anybody in this audience any justice. There’s going to be times where I say the wrong thing, because I’m human. But I don’t pretend to be perfect and I hope to God that, you know, I don’t say the right thing all the time because if that was the case then I’d be a robot, and I’m just, I’m not a robot. There’s times when I get upset … times when I get angry, there’s times when I’m going to be frustrated. But I’m always going to be myself on this stage. When people try to twist things and say, ‘Justin’s angry at his fans. He doesn’t want his fans to scream,’ that’s not at all what I was doing. All I was simply doing was wanting people to listen; to kind of hear me out a little bit. Certain people … certain cities aren’t going to want to hear me out, and you know, sometimes it’s my job to just say, ‘Hey, I’m not going to try to force anything. I just appreciate you guys tonight, listening to me and understanding, and rocking with me.’ You guys are truly amazing.”
During his show at Manchester Arena on Oct. 23, the “Sorry” singer shocked fans after he literally told them to stop screaming, dropped the mic and left the stage. But that wasn’t the first time his fans became disappointed in him. On Oct. 20, at his other Manchester Arena show, the Biebs was booed by fans after he told them to be quiet.
While we don’t know why Justin deleted his apology, we’re definitely glad that he took the time to write it. It was pretty lengthy, so we think he definitely must have meant it. We’ll just have to wait and see how he behaves at future shows!
