Justin writes that he hopes Jewish Holocaust victim Anne would have been a Belieber
Justin Bieber has been blasted for writing a controversial message in the guestbook at Anne Frank‘s former home on Friday night.
The Canadian singer, 19, left a note stating that he hoped Jewish Holocaust victim Anne would’ve been a fan of his after visiting the museum in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
‘Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a Belieber,’ wrote Justin.
Anne and her family hid in the house after Nazi Germany occupied the Netherlands but were betrayed in 1944 and Anne died from typhus in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp aged 15.
The diary she kept while in hiding was published when the war ended and she posthumously became one of the most famous victims of the Holocaust.
After Justin‘s comment was posted on Anne Frank House‘s Facebook, he was soon labelled ‘self-indulgent’ and ‘disgusting’ for not ‘appreciating history’.
‘Tacky, tacky, tacky. It’s not all about you, kiddo. Imagine even THINKING that, in SUCH a place,’ wrote one user.
Another said: ‘anne frank a belieber?, that is by far one of the most self serving things Ive ever read, like ever…’
A spokesman for the museum told the Daily Mail that she didn’t see anything offensive about Justin‘s remarks.
