Justin Bieber Must Apologize for Posing With Abused Tiger

justin-bieber-tiger-on-instagram

Target: Justin Bieber

Goal: Apologize for posing with a captive tiger and donate to a tiger sanctuary to make up for damage you caused.

Justin Bieber attended his dad’s engagement party where he petted and posed with a captive tiger who was apparently brought in from the Bowmanville Zoo by trainer Michael Hackenberger. Hackenberger is currently facing animal cruelty charges after PETA released footage of him whipping an animal. Bieber’s actions communicated to millions of his followers that holding tigers captive is cool, when in fact it is horribly abusive and immoral.

The fight against using animals for entertainment and props has become a mainstream issue, so Justin Bieber should have known better. The situation gets substantially worse now that it’s known that the tiger was brought in by a trainer who has been charged with animal abuse.

When wild animals like tigers are used for entertainment, they’ve usually been abused since a young age in order to teach the animal submission. Wild animals should not be tortured and kept captive for the entertainment of humans.

It’s not enough for Justin to be criticized for this. Demand that Justin apologize for hanging around this poor animal and that he donate to a tiger sanctuary to make up for his mistake.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Bieber,

At your father’s recent engagement party, you posed with a captive tiger who was apparently brought in by an animal trainer who is being charged with animal abuse. Animals used for entertainment like this have usually lived miserable lives where they’ve been abused from a young age and forced into captivity and submission.

As a public figure, you can take a stand against this abuse and fight for wild animals to actually be wild. I demand that you apologize and, as part of your apology, make a donation to a tiger sanctuary.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    As if he would apologize. Justin is a brat. He doesn’t care about anyone but himself and has acted like a spoiled human garbage truck many times. He would never acknowledge being wrong.

    • Agreed! He is a conceited, arrogant,self-serving, animal abandoner/abuser and has nothing to recommend him as talented, much less as a celebrity. Apologize??!! He ought to apologize for taking up space on the plalnet and using air!

    There is no end to the idiocy that is this moron.

  3. Suzan Caylen says:

    You have a ton of money and could truly do some good in the world. Grow up and learn to care for and DO for others!

  4. So many donate to animal welfare groups, many have little to live on but believe in saving animals from abuse. You obviously have no remorse in anything you do. Grow up kid, donate a substantial sum to animal welfare NOW and perhaps educate yourself to the reality of cruelty towards these innocent animals. Step up and grow up.

  5. SOMEBODY SHOULD BE TALKING TO HIS DAD, HE SOUNDS LIKE A REAL IDIOT. LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON, APPARENTLY.

  6. GROW UP, BIEBER AND START RECOGNIZING THAT WITH ALL THAT FAME COMES RESPONSIBILITY. YOUNG PEOPLE LOOK UP TO YOU. LIVE THE LIFE. WALK THE WALK. TALK THE TALK – BUT FOR GOODNESS SAKE SHOW THE WORLD YOU HAVE SOME BRAIN CELLS ROCKING AROUND – AND A CONSCIOUS WAY OF THINKING ABOUT THE WORLD THAT ISN’T ALL ABOUT BUBBLE GUM MUSIC…GROW UP – AND START LEARNING ABOUT THOSE – PEOPLE AND ANIMALS WHO DON’T HAVE A FRACTION OF THE FREEDOM YOU PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE TO ENJOY. STOP ENJOYING YOUR LIFE AT THE EXPENSE OF OTHERS AND START USING YOUR NAME AND FAME TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE WORLD AROUND YOU. TAKE A LOOK AT JOAQUIN PHOENIX AND WHAT HE USES HIS NAME TO HELP WITH, FOR STARTERS…

    Justin Bieber doesn’t have a good track record when it comes to animals. He’s a male bimbo with no education or intelligence or morals. He’ll never grow up to be a man; he’ll always be a twerp and an ass.

    I’m absolutely NOT a fan of Bieber; but this seems like an over reaction…..did he even know some people would consider what he did “wrong”? How did this become a media storm? It is so MINOR compared with REAL ANIMAL ABUSE, such as the man who burned his dog alive and yet spent no time in jail; or the woman who poured bleach on her dog in its’ crate……THAT is real animal abuse…..calling THIS animal abuse dilutes what people think animal abuse is.

  10. Absolutely horrible.

  11. Stephanie Geyser says:

    A pampered rich kid posing with an abused animal. It’s a pity it isn’t the other way around.

    • Oh no, you are wrong… he was not a pampered kid. When he was young his mother went to food banks in the city to feed Justin. Obviously he was not pampered when growing up.Only it is Now he is seeing the money and obsessed with them and have no respect anymore to any one. Let alone for the animals. This man grew up without having any decent character. His life record is stinky as his childhood. He is nothing but a rotten human being with a simply a good voice. That’s all. When he went to Australia, over there the people even threw the rotten eggs at him & perhaps Australians don’t want even to see him in there.

  12. Everitta Loveless says:

    Why didn’tyou help the tiger Justin you certainly have the resources your shameful

  13. Why didn’t you do something to help the tiger it looks like you go along with the abuse.

  14. Justin Beiber has the voice but NO brains. It’s empty.

  15. It baffles me to read some comments dont give him a hard time educate him, are you all talking about the same person? The same one that wouldnt pay the quarantine fees for his Capuchin monkey he tried to smuggle into Germany so was taken off him and put into a sanctuary then said he wants to get another he was proberly looking at that tiger thinking maybe i could have one of those.

  16. simon rickman simon rickman says:

    little shit he is. ignorant, nasty and dumb. we can only hope he soon sees the error of his ways and becomes an animal activist putting all his money toward helping drowned kittens, romanian dogs and the trophy hunted african animals – er hang on, oh yeah right, as if. why are the rich, who could do so much good, always so stupidly ignorant? fuck them

  17. Cut justin a break. First of all he’s petting the tiger I’ll bet he’s just amazed at the tiger’s magnificence.i’ll bet like many people justin hasn’t given much thought about how it is possible for the tiger to be laying there calmly.it seems like he hasn’t had the best guidence in his young life.i just know if these wildlife issues were brought to his attention, he would be more than happy to give a grand donation.However he should be approuched with respect and some education about the abuse of tigers and elephants etc.anyone that close to a tiger would love to pet him,as if to say we humans aren’t all bad.i am APPAULD at the jealousy and emotional abuse u folks dished out to justin. U are no different than those that abuse the tiger
    .He has feelings too,this kind of bashing has pushed many a young person to suicide. God bless the world, please.

    • Educate those around you.once u open people’s eyes , to the evil in many a man’s heart,most will want to help.verbal and emotional abuse is a form of intimidation.would u help someone ‘s cause who was treating u that way?EMPATHY.stand in justin’s shoes and read these comments back& pretend it’s written about you.he’s probably thinking I loved that tiger. I really had no idea what kind of things a trainer does,never thought about it. It’s not like I’m around tiger’s everyday.PLEASE TRY NOT TO JUDGE,UNTIL YOU’VE WALKED A MILE IN HIS SHOES. NONE OF U NO JUSTIN PERSONALLY.HE SEEMS LIKE HE HAS A HEART.PLEASE ASK HIM TO HELP. BUT FIRST APPOLOGIZE FOR THESE COMMENTS.IT WOULD BE GREAT TO HAVE HIM GO TO BAT FOR ANIMALS EVERYWHERE,WITH HIS FANBASE,THAT COULD REALLY PUT OUR FIGHT FOR ANIMAL RIGHTS IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.thanks folks,just don’t be too quick to judge.

  18. If you can’t see the suffering in that animals whole demeanour. Yet I think I can see that in your face on this photo, you can see it, perhaps even feel it’s suffering and pain. Don’t just apologise and donate to a sanctuary. You can do so much more. You have the wealth and means to save that particular tiger, you could purchase it and get it to a sanctuary and a life it so deserves today. Do something useful with your money and worthwhile in your life. SAVE THAT TIGER, THE ONE YOU PETTED, CHANGE IT’S LIFE, BECAUSE YOU CAN. And you can encourage millions of others to help too. Make that difference, today, Justin.
