Justin Bieber has a friend in Louis Tomlinson.

The One Direction singer took to Twitter on Friday to defend The Biebs amidst the bad press he’s received while in London, writing, “Although I don’t know him personally, I do wish the press would take it easy on @justinbieber.”

Tomlinson added in another tweet, “I really do empathize with him, I don’t see anything out of character in comparison to any other teenagers I know.”

As Gossip Cop previously reported, Bieber had a rough time while touring in the city.

He was criticized for going on late at one of his concerts, collapsed on stage, got into a shouting match with a photographer outside his hotel and had his birthday celebration ruined by “overly aggressive” “dummies.”

Do you agree with Tomlinson that the media is being unjustly hard on Bieber?
