Director of the National Institute of Anthropology and History confirmed that Bieber and his friends were being disrespectful of the Mayan ruins.
Justin Bieber is acting like a brat again, according to the latest reports. The Canadian singer and his friends, including alleged girlfriend Hailey Baldwin, were thrown off sacred ruins in Tulum, Mexico on Thursday, January 7 for misbehaving.
Bieber and his gang reportedly climbed the beachside archaeological site and pulled down their pants for a selfie. Visitors are warned not to climb on some of the ruins, which was built in the 13th century, because they could be unstable. Security told them to stand down but Bieber reportedly yelled at them. Bieber’s party also arrived at the site with beer, which is prohibited.
“I can confirm to you that Mr. Bieber was kicked out of the Tulum archaeological site yesterday,” Adriana Velazquez-Morlet, director of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH), told ET. “He and his mates pulled his pants down and insulted our staff at the site.”
Police were called but Bieber left before they could intervene. “We have a very strict policy of conservation and respect of the Mexican cultural heritage that applies equally to all our visitors, whether or not they’re famous,” Velazquez-Morlet added.
Bieber has been vacationing in Mexico with Baldwin. The “Sorry” singer made no reference to the incident but tweeted on Friday, “Great times today.”
Interestingly, a Maya ecotourism camp called AllTournative said Bieber was “completely respectful” during his visit to Jungla Maya Park on Tuesday. “He was completely respectful, and he participated in the welcoming ceremony performed by a local shaman,” a spokeswoman of the camp said. “He even ate some of the traditional food prepared by local communities.”
