According to Mirror.co.uk, Justin Bieber has been slammed by heavy metal fans for wearing a Metallica T-shirt.
The 21-year-old, who for many is the undisputed prince of pop, found himself blasted by fans of the band when he shared a snap on Instagram. On it, the singer is donning a wide-brimmed black hat teamed with an oversized black Metallica top. The pop brat’s fashion choice evidently rubbed a lot of people up the wrong way as they mocked the hitmaker for his attire.
One user wrote: “Take that shirt off you don’t deserve it.”
While another added: “U r a disgrace to metallica.”
Someone else simply stated: “I love Metallica and I hate Justin Bieber.”
Justin is no stranger to online abuse, with his Baby music video topping the list of most disliked YouTube clips of all time.
Still, it’s likely that the Biebs may have bigger things to worry about after a lawsuit against him was reinstated earlier this week.
The Canadian, along with his mentor Usher, both face a $10 million copyright lawsuit after being accused of copying parts of a song.
A federal judge previously dismissed the case, ruling the two tracks differed “significantly” in tone and lyrical content, but the appeal court have now overridden the decision.
Circuit Judge Pamela Harris wrote: “After listening to the Copeland song and the Bieber and Usher songs as wholes, we conclude that their choruses are similar enough and also significant enough that a reasonable jury could find the songs intrinsically similar.”
