Despite the fact that it’s the fans who make Justin Bieber the icon that he is, a 22-year-old who has a net worth of $200 million and can do whatever he wants, he continues to disrespect them.
This is him punching a fan in the face:

He seems to constantly combat those who support him. Bieber has even become so offended by his fans that he publicly announced he won’t take photos with them.
Before deleting his Instagram, Bieber made this statement:
“If you happen to see me out somewhere know that I’m not gonna take a picture. I’m done taking pictures…”
Apparently, he doesn’t even want fans to take a picture of him.
During a singer’s “Purpose” tour in Melbourne, Australia, twenty-two-year-old fan Sabah Helal waited years to meet Bieber, whom she claimed was her idol.
After a show, fans gathered around Bieber, Helal being one fan who managed to get her way to the front of the crowd.
It was then that Helal came face-to-face with her idol, and instead of just taking a photo without his permission, Helal asked:
“Hey Justin, can we have a photo?”
But Bieber wasn’t having any of it. Instead of taking the photo of politely declining, Bieber decided to leave the fan in tears.
He responded by saying:
“You’re invading my privacy. I don’t want a photo.”
Then he quickly took things to the next level, rebuking the excited fan:
“Look at you, you make me sick.”
Helal was left devastated after finding out her idol was nothing like she had hoped:

Her mother, Houda Bennaoui, told the Herald Sun that his behavior was “disgusting,” adding:
“My daughter was bawling her eyes out. She was dying to meet him and then he humiliated her.”
Since the encounter, not even die-hard Bieber fans have been able to support him on this one:

“After years of supporting him, my daughter will never see him again in concert.”
Well, that’s one less fan Bieber has to worry about.
