Justin Bieber has pleaded with his fans to stop lurking outside his home for literal hours on end, waiting to get a snap of him. This is absolutely a crook element of being FAMOUS that I do not envy, holy shit.
The viral TikTok, posted by user @vanessafex, showed Justin returning home to a swarm of fans outside his apartment building in New York, which he shares with his wife Hailey Bieber.
The singer can be heard asking his fans if they are the same ones who have been here since – and I quote – “last night”.
That is… something else.
Numerous fans denied this and asked the singer for a picture, but Justin wasn’t amused.
“I hear you, I hear you. But this is my home,” he said. “You know what I mean? This is where I live. And I don’t appreciate you guys being here.”
He continued, “You guys can be anywhere else, but this is my home. This is where I – you know at the end of the night when you come home and you want to relax? This is my space to do that. So I would appreciate it if you guys could leave.”
Despite Justin very politely telling his fans to stop stalking him, some still asked him for a hug and a photo. He declined and walked away.
Honestly? Fair enough.
I feel like he handled that very well, to be honest.
The TikTok went viral, to say the least, and has been viewed upwards of 13 million times. Most of the people in the comments have sided with Justin, while some argued it’s the life he signed up for… which is a rather black and white way of looking at it.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Justin has asked his fans to stop loitering outside his home.
In October last year, he posted an Instagram story questioning how anyone could think “it’s not completely inappropriate and disrespectful to wait outside my home to gawk, to stare and take pictures as I walk into my apartment.”
“This is not a hotel. It’s my home.”
Will his latest attempt to stop fans from standing outside his apartment work? Look, probably not.
