Justin Bieber came under fire for signing the guestbook at the Anne Frank House, saying he thought she'd be a Belieber. Well, she was killed in a Nazi concentration camp, which made his comments seem insensitive, since she had some serious concerns to deal with during her short life.
Curators of the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, Holland are defending The Biebs, though.
Spokeswoman Annemarie Bekker says, "He's a 19-year-old boy taking the effort to come and see the museum, and we'd like to point that out, and I think it's quite innocent what he put down."
Another representative, Maatje Mostart, told the BBC, "He's 19. It's a crazy life he's living, he didn't mean bad. And also it's nice that he made the effort, he didn't have to come."
What do you think of The Biebs' guestbook comments?
