Justin Bieber can’t get out of the sports headlines. From the fantastic look he sported in the Eastern Conference Finals to the mystery girl he took to the NBA Finals, he returns after getting off on the wrong foot with the Stanley Cup champions.
While taking pictures of Lord Stanley’s Cup in the Chicago Blackhawks locker room, he accidently took a step on the logo and was caught with a candid picture on Twitter. It’s a tradition to always walk around the logo, which Bieber probably didn’t have any idea that he was not supposed to — and probably didn’t even know what the Blackhawks’ logo was.
Obviously that created some backlash from fans and other people on Twitter, and there was enough that senior director Brandon Faber actually released a statement on the situation Wednesday night:
“Bieber was very excited to see the Stanley Cup when he entered our locker room last night. As frequently happens with guests into our room, Justin inadvertantly stepped on the team logo on the floor but moved off quickly once immediately reminded. He was apologetic and understanding of the tradition but continued to take photos with the Cup and some young fans. He was extremely genuine and kind with his time. We appreciate his enthusiasm towards hockey and wish him well with the remainder of his tour.”
I wonder where the next Bieber adventure in the world of sports will take us!
