You can’t help but notice in the trends on Twitter and on the Internet in general that Justin Bieber has yet again started some criticism from his recent visit to Anne Frank House after entering a comment in the guest book the other day.
So what’s all the fuss about, I hear you saying, well upon visiting Anne Frank House, Justin Bieber left the comment “Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.” This sparked off a back lash from many in the world.
Anne Frank House responds to Justin Bieber’s Comment
The Anne Frank House Facebook page posted a response: “The Anne Frank House was pleased to welcome Justin Bieber to the Anne Frank House last Friday. We think it is very positive that he took the time and effort to visit our museum. He was very interested in the story of Anne Frank and stayed for over an hour. We hope that his visit will inspire his fans to learn more about her life and hopefully read the diary.“.
Comments have been posted on the Facebook page with many disgruntled with the comment that Justin Bieber wrote in the guest book, with one saying “The world has gone to hell in a hand basket if we need people like Justin Bieber to inspire our young people.” and another “He had a perfect opportunity to be a positive role-model and say things to inspire the younger generation and then he goes and blows it!“.
Even Twitter has been rife with many comments flying around, obviously you’re going to got all the beliebers bending over backwards defending their one and only person in their lives, but strangely other are defending him with some tweets such as:
I'm backing @justinbieber – again. He meant no offence, and has got the world's youth talking about Anne Frank. This is a good thing.

But the majority of the non-fans are hating what he wrote and the barrage of tweets are still flowing around the twittersphere condemning him.
As of yet (while typing out this post) Justin Bieber hasn’t tweeted out anything else about the incident about Anne Frank House, although they have no contempt for Justin Bieber at Anne Frank House as can be seen from their FaceBook update, but the only response from Justin Bieber has been a set of pictures with fans!!

So what do you think, is this all being just being blown out of context or do you think that Justin Beiber just put his brain out of gear and wrote down a comment in an attempt to cause controversy as some kind of crazy publicity stunt!
