Generally speaking, it’s safe to assume that if Justin Bieber announces he’s going to be somewhere, his fans will go full-blown insane and create some sort of city-wide emergency because shrieking entitlement will always beat out realistic self-control. Anyway, Bieber recently announced that he was going to be doing a four-song set, pro-bono, in Oslo for his fans, and of course his fans took that freebie extended out of charity and used it to cause a city-wide riot. TMZ reports:

Oslo’s mayor has launched an investigation into yesterday’s near-catastrophic Justin Bieber concert in Norway — after 49 teenage girls were injured in the fandemonium … and 14 were taken by ambulance for emergency care. No one was seriously injured, but Mayor Fabian Stang groused, “I have already called on the Emergency Planning Agency to examine the entire event from the planning stage to its implementation. We have to find out what went wrong and why it happened.” TMZ broke the story … Oslo police nearly declared a state of emergency as tens of thousands of teenage Bieber fans descended on the city, mobbing the streets. Mayor Stang said it got so bad … he had to hide behind a tree at one point to avoid getting trampled.

So what you’re saying is it’s perfectly admissible to cause massive amounts of public collateral damage as long as you have the slimmest of chances to meet your fantasy boyfriend? Do they have any idea how morally devoid that sentiment is? Although I’m not ruling out the possibility that Bieber may be trying to weaponize the destructive force of enabled teenagers. “Mr. Bond, you will forfeit the USA’s nuclear launch codes, or face the wrath of entitled little girls. YOU HAVE THIRTY MINUTES TO COMPLETE THIS.”
