It was a big weekend for J. Biebs. The singer shaved his head and also petted a tiger. What a time to be alive.
Sure he pissed of some fans by buzzing his head, but the tiger business really pissed of PETA. The horror!
The tiger was at his father’s engagement party in Canada. Reportedly, the cat was supplied by a Canadian zoo. If we needed another reason to move to Canada other than free health care and avoiding a Donald Trump presidency, it’s that, apparently, their zoos just loan out animals like library books.
Anyway, PETA got pretty pissed off about the fact Bieber was petting the animal at all.
“Exotic animals used for entertainment are usually torn away from their mothers at a young age, beaten into submission by trainers, and forced to live in cramped enclosures. They may even be fed sedatives so that they’re docile during events and parties like the one Justin attended,” PETA wrote in a statement on its website.
Like, PETA, are you fur real? I feel like this tiger was more pissed off by the fact Justin Bieber was the biggest celebrity at that party than the fact that he lives in a zoo.
Bieber isn’t saying “sorry” either. (Yes, I know that joke was low-hanging fruit). He’s keeping the picture up on Instagram and probably reveling in his 2 million+ likes.
