Justin Bieber won’t be hitting the stage in Beijing anytime soon.
The Canadian pop singer has been banned from performing in the Chinese capital for “bad behavior,” according to a statement from the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture in response to fans asking about the cancellation.
“His series of misbehaviors while living abroad and during his performances in China has caused public resentment,” said the statement dated July 18. “To regulate the domestic entertainment market and purify its environment, we find it inappropriate to bring in performers with bad behaviors.”
Justin is currently on his third world tour, with Asian dates in Japan, India, Hong Kong, Philippines, Singapore and Indonesia.
Bieber is no stranger to controversy, after denying reports for groping and spitting on fans, pleading guilty for illegally street racing and for recently not knowing the Spanish words to his latest hit “Despacito.”
