Justin Bieber has apologized for kicking the Argentina flag off stage during his concert in the country on Saturday.
As we previously reported, the singer used his mic stand to push the flag from off the stage, causing a huge backlash from the Argentine citizens who felt he disrespected the national symbol.
Many demanded a public apology … and Bieber obliged by posting a series of apologetic tweets on Wednesday night:
‘heard about what is going on with me down in Argentina and im shocked. I love Argentina and have had some of the best shows of my tour there. people throw stuff on my stage all show and i get it to the stage hands to get off so no one got hurt. that video i saw a bra and thought it was a shirt. Im being told by my team it was a shirt but even if it was a flag I would never do anything to disrespect Argentina or the people of Argentina or the fans. Im so sorry for anyone who took my actions the wrong way and I hope you can forgive this mistake. so once again to the people of Argentina. Im sorry if that was taken the wrong way and im sorry for my mistake. I hope u can accept this and I loved my time there performing for you and look forward to coming back. I gave my all and I know the fans did there too. te amo. I would never do anything to disrespect my fans. I dont like having to defend myself but this time it was needed as I mean no disrespect. so it is all love all around the world. thanks.’
Apology accepted, Argentina?
