Justin Bieber’s London tale of woes continued last night at the O2 Arena, as he was booed on stage by his fans for coming 2 hours late to his concert.
He was then roundly slammed by fans and parents alike on Twitter, who labelled his behavior ‘disgusting,’ ‘rude,’ ‘arrogant’ and ‘disrespectful.’
Justin’s mostly under-16 fans were forced to leave the arena without seeing their idol, as he didn’t show up till 10:35 pm GMT – just 25 minutes before he was scheduled to finish.
The angry fans were forced to listen to Michael Jackson’s hits for over 45 minutes after being entertained by side attractions Carly Rae Jepsen and Jaden Smith. When he later showed up, many fans had already walked out heartbroken, with hundreds stranded in the streets as many missed the last trains.
And worse, Justin didn’t even apologize for coming late … and this was what actually set the fans off. Instead it was the O2 who offered one, without explaining the cause of the lateness.
