Drake Bell has been throwing shade at Justin Bieber again. On May 15, Bell posted an article recounting the 20-year-old pop star’s latest legal troubles, including a recent armed robbery accusation. As he tweeted, “When will it end??!! Are we really STILL putting up with this?! “
Bieber’s latest run-ins with the law include an accusation of armed robbery. On Monday, the “Beauty and a Beat” singer was reportedly involved in an altercation at the batting cages in Sherman Oaks, CA when he allegedly confronted a woman whom he believed was taking pictures of the incident. The woman says that when she refused to hand over her phone, Bieber went directly into her purse, and eventually wrestling the phone from her hands.
For years, the former “Drake & Josh” star has been open about his disdain for Bieber. Last month, after years of dealing with Bell’s Twitter insults, the “Boyfriend” singer decided that it was payback time. Bieber decided to crash Bell’s album release party. When the crowd went crazy, Bieber implied that the fans liked him better than Bell. As he tweeted, “So nice seeing my fans at the grove tonight.”
Bell is not the only celebrity to be throwing shade at Bieber lately. Here’s a look at other famous “non-Beliebers.”
This month, in an interview with Rolling Stone, the Black Keys drummer called Bieber out for the “irresponsible” manner in which he handled their 2013 feud. As he commented, “Justin Bieber, like a f-king irresponsible a-hole, sicced 40 million Twitter followers on me because I paid him a compliment he didn’t understand,”
Back in 2013, a reported had asked Carney how Bieber should feel about the lack of Grammy nomination. He responded, “Grammys are for music, not for the money, and he’s making a lot of money. He should be happy.”
Upon learning about Carney’s comment, Bieber tweeted that “the Black Keys drummer should be slapped around haha.” Carney then spent months being harassed by over-zealous “Beliebers” on social media.
The “Daily Show” host is disappointed in Selena Gomez for continuing to associate with the bad boy pop star. He feels that this decision shows poor judgment on her part. He is also worried about what kind of example their relationship sets for his young children. In a May 7 interview, referencing her role on “Wizards of Waverly Place,” Stewart wondered, “how do I explain that to them? She was a wizard and now she’s hanging out with a douchebag.”
In a recent interview with Howard Stern, the “Neighbors” star talked about the negative experiences he had meeting Bieber in person. As he explained , “he’s a good example of someone who you meet, who you think you are going to hate and then you get to hate him. You meet him and he lives up to every one of your expectations.”
He also suggested that Bieber carried himself with an attitude of entitlement. He felt that the “All That Matters” singer possessed “no humility, no awareness, no sense that ‘I appeal to young, young people, maybe a grown man who works in comedy doesn’t f—ing give a s— about me.'”
In the May issue of Men’s Fitness, Hamm suggested that Bieber was a spoiled brat who needed to needed to get his act together. As he commented, “look at Bieber or whoever. You’re like, ‘What the f**k, man? What are you doing? Why?’ There’s no one telling those people no, and it’s a shame.”
He suggested that Bieber needed “a mom or a dad or a really good friend who can say, ‘Hey, sh**head!’ You see people in the world and you’re like, ‘Do you know how a washing machine works? Do you know how to wash a dish? Life skills are something we’re missing.”
Was Drake Bell justified in commenting on Justin Bieber’s ongoing legal woes? Are celebs like Patrick Carney, Jon Stewart, Seth Rogen, and Jon Hamm being too hard on Bieber? Or does the young pop star need to start reevaluating some of the choices he’s made recently?
