But we always knew that Justin Bieber had this in him, didn’t we? Everything that this kid has ever done has led us to believe that he’s an extremely childish little jackass with poor impulse control and a very inflated sense of self-importance. And that’s exactly the kind of person who goes around hitting people in the dick.
See, The New Yorker, for whatever reason, did a story about Justin’s manager, Scooter, and our friends at Popbytes were kind enough to share the following excerpt:
Carson Daly, the host of The Voice, walked by. Braun called out, “Hey, Carson!” Daly and Braun began to review a script detailing stage patter. Bored, Bieber started a game, playfully jabbing everyone in the crotch with his fist. First, he jabbed at Braun, who, without looking up from the script, dropped his hands to block. Daly did the same. When Bieber jabbed at Siva Kaneswaran, a member of the Wanted, he connected. He called out, “Got you, bro.” Kaneswaran balled his fist but seemed unsure how to respond. “I don’t want to hurt his pretty face,” he said.
Braun said, “Just get him in the pretty balls. It’s fair game.”
“No, it’s not,” Bieber said.
Braun took a firm tone. “Justin, it is—fair game,” he said. “You hit him in the balls, fair game.”
Bieber was peeved. “Where’re we going?” he asked. “Where’s my dressing room?”
I may not be up to date on Bro Code, but I’m pretty sure it’s not cool for dudes to hit other dudes in the junk. And even as someone who doesn’t know the delicate nature of testicles firsthand, the last time I thought it was ok to casually hit a guy in the crotch was when I was about 8 (and in my defense, it was a total asshole who wouldn’t let me by him in the hallway at school. He kept jumping in front of me and yelling “red light, red light,” so I punched him as hard as I could between his legs, said “green light,” and went on my way). And even if you do think it’s acceptable to do something like that, you’ve absolutely got to be able to take it right back. But Justin sounds like he actually doesn’t understand that. And that’s really troubling.
