Justin Bieber angers fans as he throws Argentine flag out of car window
Justin Bieber has got in trouble with Argentine fans for apparently trashing the country’s flag for a second time.
In 2013 a flag was thrown on stage during a show and Biebs booted it off – not realising what it was.
The singer kicked the flag and then used his mic stand like a comedy sweeping brush to knock it off the stage.
But apparently it was an innocent act and he didn’t realise the garment was a flag.
But now he has done it again.
A mobile phone clip shows Bieber besieged by fans as he was leaving a hotel in New York in the backseat of a 4×4.
The singer has the rear window wound down and minders can be heard warning the teenage fans to stay back.
But after one 15-year-old fan thrusted what appears to be a small Argentinian flag towards the star, it reportedly flapped in his face, apparently infuriating Bieber, according to reports from Buenos Aires media.
Seconds later, the footage catches the moment he tosses it out of the window with a look of contempt on his face.
The fan – not named in media reports – revealed on social media: “I am in Manhattan because it’s my birthday and I found out Justin is coming, so I bought a ticket.”
She added: “Yesterday I was at the hotel at 10am and I stayed for hours outside waiting.
“When he was going out, guards told us to back off, so I grabbed the flag and threw it at him.
“Of course it was not my intention for it to fall close to his face, so I apologised a thousand times.
“He looked at me with the face of a p**ck, grabbed the flag, threw it on the pavement and shut the window.
“I’m 15 and he could have treated me better since I apologised and he could hear it.”
