Charlie Puth Apologizes For Screaming “F*ck You, Justin Bieber!” (VIDEO)
Charlie Puth apologized for screaming “F*ck you, Justin Bieber” during a Dallas concert on Friday, but he then deleted the apology. See video below.
The unexpected slam came as Puth was performing “We Don’t Talk Anymore,” his duet with Selena Gomez, Bieber’s ex. Gomez was not at the show, but Puth sat at a piano and calmly performed the song as fans sang along. At one point, though, out of nowhere, Puth yelled into the mic, “F*ck you, Justin Bieber!”
While the crowd cheered in response, Puth was dragged on social media by Bieber fans when footage of the diss surfaced online. Early Saturday morning, the rising star offered an apology. Curiously, though, he’s since deleted the tweets.
“I am a massive @JustinBieber fan and I have nothing but great things to say about him and his music always,” Puth first wrote. He went on, “Please find it in your heart to forgive me and know that this is coming from a real place. I am not a mean person.”
“I am very sorry if I offended anyone, and mostly to Justin,” Puth continued. “His work is inspiring. I would never intentionally or publicly bash him.” The “See You Again” singer added, “I was bullied where things like this were said to me all the time, pretty much all of my life until the end of high school.”
Since deleting the tweets, though, Puth has gone on to tout his career. His name became a trending topic both worldwide and in the U.S. as Beliebers continued to rip him for his actions. Puth is expected to attend the Kids’ Choice Awards on Saturday night. The video in question can be seen below.
