Justin Bieber boycott launched over comment supporting Ground Zero mosque

A Justin Bieber boycott over his supposed comment announcing his support to Ground Zero mosque was launched by the founder of the 9/11 Hard Hat Pledge, but Bieber’s comment was later proven to be a hoax.

Andy Sullivan, founder of the 9/11 Hard Hat Pledge and is publicly against Park51, a planned mosque and community center near Ground Zero, recently launched a boycott against Justin Bieber, and even posted a photo of the music pop idol (same as shown here) on its Facebook page.

Allegedly, the 16-year old Canadian music superstar was interviewed at Tiger Beat magazine and announced his support for the planned Ground Zero mosque.

This angered Sullivan and later bans his 11-year-old son and eight-year-old daughter from attending Justin Bieber‘s concerts.

“I informed them, ‘Hey guys, guess what? Justin Bieber spoke out for the ground zero mosque,” Sullivan told Salon.com in an interview.

“My little girl took down his poster and said she didn’t want to have nothing to do with him anymore. These are my kids. They’re living this thing.” He added.

However, Salon said they cannot find any Tiger Beat magazine interview related to Justin Bieber’s comment supporting the plan of Ground Zero mosque.

Instead, Salon found a post at Celebjihad.com, with the full contents below.

Justin Bieber has weighed on the controversy surrounding the so-called “Ground Zero” Mosque. In an interview with Tiger Beat, the pop sensation stressed that freedom of religion is what makes America great, and went on to say that those who oppose the Mosque are motivated by bigotry.

Muslims should be allowed to build a mosque anywhere they want,” the singer said. “Coming from Canada, I’m not used to this level of intolerance, eh.”

Bieber went on to say that Muslims are “super cool,” Christians are “lame-o-rama,” and that the mosque will help “start a dialogue” with all religions about which Justin Bieber song is the most awesome.

“I was like seven when September 11th went down, and frankly I’m surprised people are still going on about it. Move on, already!”

Added the singer, “Everyone needs to just chillax and dance!”

Nevertheless, Salon revealed that they received an email from the owner of Celebjihad.com, who confirmed that the Justin Bieber-Tiger Beat magazine interview is a hoax.

“[T]he fact that some people take it seriously is hilariously depressing.” the email stated, according to Salon.

Incidentally, a disclaimer at CelebJihad.com also says that the website contains published rumors, speculation, assumptions, opinions, fiction as well as factual information.
