Justin Bieber called a woman in Perth, Australia a ‘beached whale’ at the Hyatt Regency hotel on Sunday, reports News.Com.AU. Hotel guest Helen Robinett claimed she heard Bieber yell out the abuse.
‘There were four young girls in bikinis. One girl who was gorgeous looking, with long dark hair and would have been about a size 14. Justin looked over at her and said ‘What are you, Hawaiian or something?’ She said `No, I’m not’. Then he said ‘You look like a beached whale’ ..The girl said ‘Are you serious’ and he said ‘You should go on The Biggest Loser.’
..The whole pool deck heard him call this beautiful young girl a beached whale. Everyone heard. And there was silence. It was almost like his security were used to it.’ The girl looked ‘deflated and almost in tears. The girl and her friends left the pool deck after that. I looked at her and said ‘Don’t you take that on. That has nothing to do with you.’
I made a complaint to the hotel, and they said the girl was OK and she was a Bieber fan. She may appear OK, but I work in styling and fashion, I know how women view their bodies, what body image issues women have. That kind of comment can have a serious impact and repercussion.
That’s why I’m so upset about it. I’m bloody angry. He’s nothing without his fan base. And he’s abusing them. The girl next to me said ‘I can’t believe he just said that, he’s my idol’ and I said ‘Well get yourself a new idol.
I understand he’s 19, he’s surrounded by meatheads who pander to his every need. He’s immature, he needs leadership and guidance. He may come through, I hope he lives long enough to learn some lessons and do some good things. He needs some leadership. Someone should be guiding him to not speak to women like that.’
