Justin Bieber’s concert in Manila might be well and over with, but Filipinos are still abuzz after a video showing the teen superstar allegedly refusing to sign a copy of his album for a Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) employee appeared on YouTube on April 11, PEP.ph reports. Spot.PH quotes the uploader
, user v7andrea on YouTube, who wrote in the video description, "My father (in neon green vest) tried to get an autograph from Justin Bieber for my sister. But take a look (at) what he did. He tapped my father's hand and the (CD) fell on the floor. Nobody from his crew helped him. Not even an apology from Justin Bieber himself."
It’s only been a few days after the upload, yet the video has already gained more than 500,000 hits and more than 6,000 comments. Filipino netizens had mixed reactions to the incident. YouTube commenter ixsiaps said
Justin’s behavior was still inexcusable despite him being sick. “He could have just [ignored] the guy... What's [with] the tap? Is he really that sick????”
Meanwhile, Spot.PH commenter airport authority
focused on airport protocol: “If this happened in another country (say, the U.S.), the airport employee will immediately get a pink slip (FIRED!) pronto. If an employee is on the clock and inside the secured area, nobody is allowed to bring cell phones and harass the passengers, especially [celebrities].”
Watch the video for yourself, and tell us what you think! Should Justin Bieber have signed the NAIA employee’s CD?
