Bieber Fans Want Him To Cancel Concerts In The UK So He Can Stay Safe
In the wake of the terrorist attack at Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester Monday night, Justin Bieber fans are urging the pop star to cancel his upcoming performances in the United Kingdom for fear of his own safety.
Bieber is scheduled to perform at Principality Stadium in Cardiff on June 30 and then again in London’s famed Hyde Park on July 2. Although his British fans would love to see him perform in person, many of them are calling for him to cancel the shows, according to the New York Post.
His manager, Scooter Braun, who also manages Grande, posted a statement on Twitter Monday night following the attack that left more than 20 fans dead and wounded 59. In it Braun thanked the first responders who “rushed towards danger to help save lives” and asked people to “hold the victims, their families and all those affected in your hearts and prayers.”
The statement has since received more than 1,000 replies from fans on Twitter and even more on Instagram, many of them urging him to cancel the pop sensation’s shows.
“For security reasons, cancel Justin’s show in the UK, I beg you, with all my heart, please,” one fan responded. “I will not survive when something happens to him,” another added in a similar message.
“We know Justin wants to give his best to fans, but now the best is he stay safe,” another concerned fan tweeted in response.
Others encouraged the manager to bolster security and go on with the shows, but still more pleaded with Braun to cancel.
“Scooter! Please cancel Justin concerts in the UK! Beliebers is very worried about Justin! If something happens to Justin, then we will never forgive you,” one Instagram user said.
Braun has not yet made a decision when it comes to Bieber’s Purpose world tour, but Ariana Grande’s has been suspended for the time being.
