Actually i can see a good thing about not keeping it quiet.

Justin Bieber gets pictured as violent in the medias, and then even more parents will start to decline their children acces to his music and concerts.
User avatar #14 to #6 - kabizus (01/20/2013) [-]
The girls who listen to Bieber most likely have daddy issues and smoke weed, have sex, etc. Like their moms give a **** about the Beaver being violent.
User avatar #51 to #14 - defeats (01/20/2013) [-]
It always astounds how much FJ kids talk about "girls with daddy issues" as if you know what that actually means. On top of that, what makes you think the majority of JB fans have daddy issues?

Some people like his music, big ******* deal, it doesn't mean they have mental problems. From what I've heard it doesn't sound like he's talentless and it makes sense that young girls like him, it's not to my taste but I can see why it is to millions of others.

Some of the things you like other people would be offended by, some of the music you like people would say you're a loser or a creep for liking.

You sound like you're one of those people who moans when your "amazingly talented" band is only liked by 1000 people and you bitch and moan about how people who like famous bands are the losers.
It's such a boring and pathetic argument.

He's actually suing for unpaid overtime.

And it's his job to protect Justin, not be his little bitch because the diva man had a hissy fit because some one brought him the wrong bottled water.

If he wasn't famous, this wouldn't be a big deal. All that happened was people were bullying him and he defended himself. Usually people would be cheering him on for defending himself if he wasn't famous. The double standards that his haters have are ridiculous. I'm not a fan, I just wish people wouldn't be so ignorant just because he makes **** music.

celebrity or not punching a 12 year old in the face is generally frowned upon in modern society...
User avatar #49 to #41 - defeats (01/20/2013) [-]
16 year old Aus Casey picked up a 13 year old bully and slammed him to the ground, world cheered.
#62 to #49 - krumpetking (01/20/2013) [-]
First of all, he was 15 not 16. And second of all, he was being physically abused,
which is not OK. What he did was an act of defence, and damn good of him to do.
But being called gay doesn't warrant physical retaliation, and Justin Bieber's a
spoilt little cunt with no reason to lash out like that. Casey had been bullied for
years beforehand, and decided enough was enough. VERY different situations.
User avatar #38 to #24 - thatguywhohasbacon ONLINE (01/20/2013) [-]
I hate anybody like him just as much, the fact that he's a celebrity and should be setting a good example just makes it that much worse, like when you find a cop or a priest has been dealing drugs, it just makes it that much worse.
User avatar #40 to #38 - dolphinjew (01/20/2013) [-]
Since when did dealing drugs become the same as sticking up for yourself when you get bullied? It's not the same scenario, it can't be compared that way.
#42 to #40 - jedic (01/20/2013) [-]
Since when does a child calling you gay give you the right to strike him? Bullying by definition means to use superior strength or influence to intimidate someone; typically to force him or her to do what one wants. He was not being bullied, he was being insulted by a lil' kid and because he's famous he figures he can do what he wants and thus he hits the kid. I mean honestly, I'm surprised the kid didn't tell his parents so they could get money out of 'em. I'd love to hear him try to defend himself in court.

Now, if this kid was constantly harassing him this would be an entirely new issue but still the kid is 12 and he could have easily left the situation.
User avatar #44 to #42 - mistermarcus (01/20/2013) [-]
Lets be honest here, if some little **** we're following you around acting cocky and calling you names, would you have walked away? I probably wouldn't.

If you act like an asshole, someone is eventually going to kick your ass.
#60 to #44 - jedic (01/20/2013) [-]
"Lets be honest here, if some little **** we're following you around acting cocky and calling you names, would you have walked away? I probably wouldn't."

Three things.

First off, from the information given it never said that the child followed J.B. around. From the information given it said that it called him "gay" and that is it. If someone where to fly off the handle after being called such a piddly and not even that insulting name that's just pathetic. While the child is obviously in the wrong for following the crowd on the J.B. hate, it's up to his parents to discipline him. (Although you could easily make an argument on how parents these days tend to be rather bad but that's a Devils Proof and can go either way.)

Second off, if it won't hold up in a court of law don't do it. Do I really need to explain this more?

Third off, that concept of retaliating with violence is exactly what starts wars. Now, you probably think I'm talkin' crazy and I probably am. I personally believe that what is allowed/disallowed or what is looked up/down upon by the general populace will have a drastic effect on society as a whole. From what I've observed from this conversation and the one above it appears that most people here believe insults should be met with violence. If America were to lose it's **** every time another country or person in said country insulted it, we'd be at war with a grandiose amount of people.
User avatar #46 to #44 - Lainge (01/20/2013) [-]
To be honest I would have just laughed in the kid's face and shot him.
Then at the end of the game I would have shown him the scores and rubbed the fact that he was beaten in his face.
User avatar #55 to #42 - dolphinjew (01/20/2013) [-]
To be bullied, you do not need to be stronger than the person you're bullying. that's irrelevant. And yes, he could have handled it differently, but the kid deserved to be shut up. You can't tell me you would just do nothing about someone calling you names. And it's not like he overreacted, like it was just once. Because people have been calling him gay his entire career. I'd probably snap at some point, too.
User avatar #45 to #40 - BerryLicious ONLINE (01/20/2013) [-]
Bullied? he punched a 12 year old in the face because they called him gay. That is not bullying, that is assaulting a minor because you're a ******* pussy.
User avatar #54 to #45 - dolphinjew (01/20/2013) [-]
You say that he was being a pussy because you don't like him. If someone is following you around calling you names, that is bullying. The kid deserved a punch in the face.
User avatar #56 to #54 - BerryLicious ONLINE (01/20/2013) [-]
Oh man up you idiot. A twelve year old generally doesn't know any better, you ignorant pile of horse vomit.
User avatar #57 to #56 - dolphinjew (01/20/2013) [-]
I'm ignorant because I think no one deserves to be treated badly? I'd say you're the ignorant one, bud
User avatar #58 to #57 - BerryLicious ONLINE (01/20/2013) [-]
You're ignorant because you think it's acceptable for an adult to hit a child. Get ****** , I'm done with you.
User avatar #59 to #58 - dolphinjew (01/20/2013) [-]
Calm your titties kid, this story is probably not even true. If it is, it's definitely been mangled by the media. I'm just sick of mongoloids like you bitching about someone you don't even know because he's famous and good looking and makes **** music. I'm not a fan, I just think the amount of jealousy people on this site have is ridiculous.

But what if in a piece of literature he was, in fact, the hole of an ass?
#7 - John Cena (01/20/2013) [-]
This is retarded. Getting punched in the chest a few times does not equal being "beat up". Now, if that $420k was going towards paying for hospital bills, then yes, he got "beat up".
User avatar #48 to #7 - cadencee (01/20/2013) [-]
That isn't the point, the fact of the matter is that he was an employee who got assaulted by his employer. Jb is very rich and so the cash out must be huge. It's how it works.
User avatar #16 to #7 - legin (01/20/2013) [-]
then he would be a crap bodyguard
User avatar #4 - remsaman (01/19/2013) [-]
Well he wouldnt have been able to fight back, because justin biebers lawyers would take that fact and be able to turn the case around, even if jimmy didnt throw the first punch.
#8 - John Cena (01/20/2013) [-]
You dont hit girls
User avatar #47 - bubblefoxee (01/20/2013) [-]
Punched. Not beaten.
User avatar #50 to #47 - arcanezero (01/20/2013) [-]
its part of the joke
User avatar #2 - fuzzyballs (01/19/2013) [-]
it would be worth $420.000 to me
User avatar #3 - HolyArachnid (01/19/2013) [-]
I thought the exact same thing when I heard about that. Even if the guy does get his four hundred grand, he'd better make it last, because he's never going to find work as a bodyguard again.
User avatar #52 to #3 - defeats (01/20/2013) [-]
I didn't read the other comments, but the fact that he didn't hit his employer back (which would cause him harm) means he didn't do anything wrong.
If he had attacked his child employer for hitting him in the chest then he would have difficulty finding work, but since he isn't overly hotheaded, he shouldn't have a problem.

Level headedness is very important for employers when looking for a bodyguard.
User avatar #61 to #52 - HolyArachnid (01/20/2013) [-]
I give you credit for taking the time to write an intelligent response, but I really suggest reading some of the other comments. You're treading ground that was already very well-treaded, believe me.

And in all honesty? It was a ******* joke, people. (A direct reply to Jimmy Kimmel's original joke, at that.) Frankly, I'm still in a state of utter bewilderment at how badly people have blown this out of proportion, acting as if I were seriously trying to contend that the bodyguard ought to be blackballed or something.
#5 to #3 - John Cena (01/19/2013) [-]
not really, "Well he wouldnt have been able to fight back, because justin biebers lawyers would take that fact and be able to turn the case around, even if jimmy didnt throw the first punch." as said by remsaman
#9 to #5 - HolyArachnid (01/20/2013) [-]
.......and for the second time in the same weekend, I run into a case of people NOT ******* THINKING before they hit the thumb button and/or open their mouths.

1. Who's saying anything about fighting back here? Isn't it possible to block a punch without hurting the assailant? (A punch from a delicately built kid, at that?) You're telling me somebody gets to be a celebrity bodyguard without sufficient hand-to-hand skills to manage that?

2. Even barring what I said above, who in the bloody hell is going to want a bodyguard who can't take a punch? (And I stress again: from a skinny teenage pop singer who is almost universally perceived as being a sissy?) A bodyguard who, instead of reacting with a mature understanding of the tension of the situation, decides to run and cry to the courts and turn the whole thing into a cheesy money-grab? Does that suggest strength in your minds? Does it say "yeah, this is the guy I want watching my back when the chips are down"? Because it smells like ten different kinds of *********** to me, and I can guarantee you it will to any sane person in need of protection.

3. Where in the hell does Jimmy enter into it, anyway? Is Jimmy Fricking Kimmel the bodyguard here? (Okay, in all seriousness, I will give Remsaman the benefit of the doubt and chalk it up to an honest goof. But if you're going to quote someone word-for-word to try and refute my argument, then at least make sure you've read it yourself first, for ****** sakes.)

Sorry that turned into such a rant, but goddamn. I take too much of this kind of **** working in retail to want to turn around and take it from people on here.
User avatar #10 to #9 - remsaman (01/20/2013) [-]
maybe its because bodyguards are supposed to be taking punches from assailants, not the people that hire them.
its not in the job description to take beatings from your employer. jimmy has every right to sue and not being hired simply because of this is ridiculous
User avatar #11 to #10 - HolyArachnid (01/20/2013) [-]
You're purposely still saying "Jimmy" just to troll me, aren't you.....

Anyway, you do make a valid point; it is a pretty ****** thing to take a swing at your own bodyguard, or anyone in your employ for that matter, and you're certainly right that he has grounds to sue.

However.....I'm not certain of the exact specifics of the situation, but it sounded to me like a big *********** between Bieber, his entourage and the raging fans, where the bodyguard's actions to break up an impending fight were misinterpreted. If I were the bodyguard, I think I would have wanted to take a step back and try to be forgiving about it. And believe me, I'm not trying to paint the bodyguard as the bad guy here; I'm only saying what he's doing is not going to reflect well on him. He's basically setting himself up to look sleazy and thin-skinned, and to be an object of public ridicule.
User avatar #12 to #11 - remsaman (01/20/2013) [-]
Only if people believe that to be so. but if anyone has any common sense this all makes sense and he isnt in the wrong

sadly people are stupid.
User avatar #13 to #12 - HolyArachnid (01/20/2013) [-]
To an extent I'm on board with what you're saying, but there are still things that rub me the wrong way about the whole scenario. Why didn't the bodyguard try to defend himself in a non-aggressive way, like I suggested? Doesn't $420,000 seem like overkill to try and take a guy for, just for swinging on you? And yet, on the flip side, what do we make of the subtle little footnotes that hint at disagreements about overtime pay between Bieber and the bodyguard? I have the feeling there's another side to the whole story that none of us are hearing, possibly something that had been festering beneath the surface for a while.
User avatar #15 to #13 - remsaman (01/20/2013) [-]
Maybe he did, but maybe he was hit by surprise, and blocked consecutive punches. this doesnt really tell the whole story.
maybe, but if the guy is going to risk losing his career, i dont see a problem with it.
Possibly. i wouldnt be surprised. the media is too hooked about reviewing what some pop star had for breakfast this morning then anything else.
#19 to #15 - HolyArachnid (01/20/2013) [-]
And to your last line, I think we have an "amen" for this whole topic. Christ, I'm looking back over this thread in utter disbelief at the amount of thought I've put into Justin ******* Bieber and his bodyguard, all because of a knee-jerk reaction to being thumbed down for something I'd meant half-jokingly in the first place.
User avatar #20 to #19 - remsaman (01/20/2013) [-]
i usually put lots of thought into things because i enjoy a good discussion.
Its usually a good idea to just ignore red or green thumbs. people hate opinions.
User avatar #23 to #20 - HolyArachnid (01/20/2013) [-]
I tend to be the same way, and don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed our discussion; it really is great to find someone who can debate heatedly but civilly on here. It's just that at the end of the day, it seems like such a silly thing to have thought so much about.

And as for the subject of thumbs.....it may be precisely because I think so much that I find myself tending to actually give a damn about them at times. I don't get into all the thumbwhoring and ******** on here, so I tend to take thumbs as a sign that what I said resonated - either by making people laugh or making them think, or both. And for all the talk I hear about this site "hating opinions", I've said some pretty controversial **** on here that's actually gone over pretty well because of the thought I put into it - which makes it all the more frustrating on the few occasions I have had my words twisted.

A'course, it could be that I'm just nuts altogether. The jury's still out. :P
User avatar #25 to #23 - remsaman (01/20/2013) [-]
yeah true. i know how you feel. most people here get so mad if you disagree with them its like you killed their puppy.

I see what you mean. i kinda go the same way, but i dont react badly if i get thumbed down.
To be honest the site seems so bi polar sometimes its ridiculous.
User avatar #27 to #25 - HolyArachnid (01/20/2013) [-]
"Bipolar" really is the way to describe it, man. One minute the whole damn site is united against something, and the next it's united in support of it. It's like a massive hive mind with zero consistency.

Usually I do find it all pretty easy to laugh off. But like I said in my initial rant, between this being the second time I've gotten this reaction in the past couple of days, and the brutal week of school and work I've had.....a dude's gotta vent sometimes. Even if it is about Justin Bieber.
User avatar #28 to #27 - remsaman (01/20/2013) [-]
A perfect example is pokemon. pokemon white/black announced: "wtf fifth gen sucks pokemon is ruined forever"
pokemon x/y announced. " **** yeah pokemon!"

True.
True.
User avatar #29 to #28 - HolyArachnid (01/20/2013) [-]
Ah, yes, the wonderful jungle of this site's Pokemon fixation; I remember the exact same kind of **** being said about the fourth generation when it was new. As someone who stopped playing the games after Gen 3 (college and career **** , you know), I have to admit I find it all a bit amusing. I can sit back and stay neutral as people brawl to the death over Snivy versus Chespin.

(Except when it comes to the TCG. Nintendo ****** the TCG in the ASS. I feel genuinely bad for anyone who wasn't around for the Wizards of the Coast days.)
User avatar #30 to #29 - remsaman (01/20/2013) [-]
ah yes, many lulz. the majority of the people who are so butthurt anyway are nostalgiafags that cant get out of the 20th century because they have brain tumors or something.

TCG..?
User avatar #31 to #30 - HolyArachnid (01/20/2013) [-]
The trading card game. When it was bought out by Nintendo from Wizards of the Coast, a whole ******** of the rules got changed.....all of a sudden we don't get powerful evolutions or Basics without having to pull ******** sacrifices to get them; we have watered-down versions of the old Pokemon Powers that don't do **** .....gaaah. Even at the height of my Pokemon fandom years ago, I never would have wanted to play in the new system; half of the classic strategies have been castrated now.
User avatar #33 to #31 - remsaman (01/20/2013) [-]
yep...
thats why i keep my old PTGC gameboy cartridge handy.
User avatar #34 to #33 - HolyArachnid (01/20/2013) [-]
I'll drink to that.

You've got to love it.....in one thread we've gone from Justin Bieber to philosophy to Pokemon. It's stuff like this that reminds me of why I still stick around here.
User avatar #35 to #34 - remsaman (01/20/2013) [-]
one of the reasons i stick around is because i dont watch the news and FJ keeps me updated on current events.
