First it's driving troubles, now it's a photo scandal - as Justin Bieber is feeling the heat thanks to a recently released controversial personal pic.
The 18-year-old Canadian sensation has drawn ire after a snap of himself and his famous girlfriend, Selena Gomez, was posted online this past Thursday showing the couple posing with the "Wizards of Waverly Place" actress' dad on the set of her new film, "While I'm Dead... Feed the Dog." Problem is, "role model" Justin just so happened to be holding a gun pointed at his potential father-in-law's belly.
While the gat-wielding moment was clearly all in jest, Bieber still has faced a barrage of angry comments, with one gossip writer opining, "Justin, whether you like it or not, you're a role model. And millions of fans, 27 million on Twitter, are following your every move. You have power in this industry, and holding a gun in jest is just plain foolish."
Even Justin's fellow Canadians have spoken out, with the Globe and Mail writing, "Guns are on everyone's mind as a serious crisis in Canada and the United States. Everyone, that is, except maybe Justin Bieber."
Despite being under fire from the public, the Biebs looked cheerful on Saturday (September 1) as he left a Los Angeles recording studio following a music making session.
The "Never Say Never" star was curiously clad in magenta sweatpants with cash printed on the zipper pockets as he kindly made time for his fans before continuing about with his Labor Day weekend doings..
