Justin Bieber Banned From The Philippines For Making Fun Of Manny Pacquiao’s Knockout

Politicians in the Philippines are upset with Justin Bieber!

So upset that the nation’s Congress is proposing a nationwide BAN of Justin Bieber if he doesn’t apologize for making fun of boxer Manny Pacquiao.

As we all know, a few weeks ago Pacquiao, who is worshiped in his native land of the Philippines, was knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez. Bieber, along with everyone else that watched this crazy knockout, jokingly posted on the social networks about his defeat.

On his Instagram he posted a Photoshopped Michael Jackson and a falling Pacquiao in parallel lean, with the caption, “Pacquiao doing the lean with MJ .. Classic moment.”

He also shared a picture of  Simba, from the Lion King nudging Manny as he did his dead father, Mufasa, in the Disney movie.

The politicians didn’t think Justin’s pictures were funny at all. Seven lawmakers in the Philippines Congress issued a statement saying, “Mr. Bieber should have known that the Hon. Pacquiao has reached his stature as such as a result of sheer hard work, determination and firm belief in God, and despite such stature best exemplifies humility and grace even in defeat.”

They also said that the Biebs insulted not only Pacquiao but the entire country’s population. They went so far as to say that Justin needs to issue a formal apology for his “distasteful comments…lest he be declared persona non grata.”
