Fans Get Aggressive with Justin Bieber After Not Singing 'Despacito'
Uh-oh. Justin Bieber is facing more “Despacito” backlash. Weeks are offending Latino fans for mocking the single’s lyrics during a club appearance in New York City, the singer upset fans yet again by refusing to the song last weekend at the Summerburst Music Festival in Stockholm, Sweden.
“I can’t do ‘Despacito.’ I don’t even know it,” he announced on stage referring to the song he collaborated on with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. A disgruntled fan immediately reacted by chucking what seems to be a water bottle at Bieber. The 23-year-old went on to dodge the object and calmly said, “Don’t throw things at me, please.”
Watch the moment in the video below:
This isn’t the first time that the singer has had objects thrown at him. In 2013, Bieber had a water bottle heaved at him during a concert in São Paulo, Brazil resulting in the star dropping his microphone and storming off the stage.
And it’s also not the first time he reveals that he doesn’t know the lyrics to the Spanish chart-topper. Last month, he ad-libbed lines to crowd like “I don’t know the words so I say ‘Dorito’” and “I ate the burrito, I just want a burrito.” Latinos took to social media to share their displease with the mockery with one Twitter user saying, “These videos of Justin Bieber not knowing the words to Despacito are just unacceptable. He’s poking fun at the whole Spanish culture.”
The “Despacito” remix with Bieber has been a major success since it’s release ranking within the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 list, being the first Spanish-language song to do so in 20 years.
