Until an old legal dispute is settled, Canadian Singer Justin Beiber can’t step foot in Argentina. The pop singer was charged to start his 45-stop world tour, but had to reschedule it for 2021.
But, Beiber will only have to perform in the North American regions and won’t take a stab at doing that in any of the South American countries like on past tours particularly Argentina.
The 26 year old is as of now, prohibited from performing in Argentina because of a forthcoming legal dispute in 2013 for disrespecting the Argentina national flag during a show in Buenos Aires.
The Canadian pop star kicked the Argentina flag off the stage. As if that’s enough, he again kicked the flag with his foot, and afterward he cleared it off the stage with his microphone stand. Notwithstanding, he conceded after the show that he thought it was a shirt.
Argentine fans irately censured him for that demonstration, after a YouTube video of the episode surfaced. Beiber quickly apologized for his act on Twitter. He typed:
“I’m so sorry for anyone who took my actions the wrong way, and I hope you can forgive this mistake,” he said, according to Time.
In a progression of writings, Bieber clarified that he regularly gets things thrown at him from fans, so he thought it was one of clothing. He had no clue that it was a flag and hope the country could pardon him.
That said, under Argentina law, Bieber could face somewhere in the range of one month to six years of jail time for the charge brought against him including having a serious fight with a photographer that very evening during his performance.
In 2016, a judge in Buenos Aires arraigned the pop star for the episode three years after the incident. Notwithstanding, the global superstar keeps on saying he is blameless in the issue. His legal advisors advanced the prosecution, however it actually hasn’t been settled.
