Justin Bieber Was Just Called Out By PETA For This Photo
If you're not up to date on Bieber news, last weekend, Justin's dad, Jeremy Bieber, had a huge engagement party in Toronto.
J Biebs Jr, being a good son, attended said party.
But the Bieber boys also had a few non-human guests in attendance, namely, a tiger that PETA thinks is from the Bowmanville Zoo.
Recently, its owner, Michael Hackenberger, was charged for animal cruelty after a video surfaced of him brutally whipping a tiger in training.
So when the organization saw Justin's Instagram with a tiger allegedly from that zoo, PETA issued a statement reprimanding the singer.
On the organization's website, PETA wrote,
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. Tigers used in this way are denied everything that they need to be happy, and we can only imagine that the tiger Justin posed with has experienced a life of misery. Justin and other guests are lucky that they weren't attacked by the wild animals. In similar situations, animals have been known to lash out because of the stress of their miserable lives. We're calling on Justin and his family never to use animals as selfie props or party entertainment again.
Oof. PETA is NOT happy with the Bieber family.
Justin or his dad have yet to comment on this statement.
And there's been no word on PETA's end on whether or not it's too late for the Biebs to say sorry.
