Justin Bieber found himself making headlines again after an unfortunate accident that occurred after leaving church Wednesday night in Beverly Hills.
You can watch the entire incident HERE.
A hoard of photographers crowded around his pickup truck as he tried to head home. As he began leaving the parking space, one of the photographers positioned himself nearly in front of the vehicle, and as Bieber passed by the large mirror whacked the photog, causing him to fall on the ground.
Cameras were flashing, and for a moment it appeared Bieber was going to continue on. After realizing what happened, he stopped and got out of the vehicle.
Now, at this point, the paparazzi immediately begin yelling at Bieber. “What the f*** did you do!” one could be heard yelling. “You ran him over, bro,” said another. At this point, Bieber can be seen walking over to check on the man. A photog yells out “don’t be a f***ing smart ass” for no clear reason.
The photogs continue to berate Bieber, questioning him on his speed exiting the driveway. Finally, who finally had had enough.
“Are you guys worried about me, or are you guys worried about this guy that’s on the ground? What are you guys doing? This guy is on the ground and you guys are talking to me. Come on, put your cameras down and start helping!”
Someone, it is unclear who, began to pray over the man. “In the name of Jesus we ask for peace,” the unidentified person said before the audio became muffled.
“I can’t see when you guys are snapping and stuff,” Bieber explained to the photogs.
The video cuts and shortly after Beiber can be heard telling someone “shame on you man, shame on you,” but it was unclear what had happened to cause him to issue the admonition.
“The last thing we need is people yelling and screaming,” he said, before continuing. “So, I appreciate you… but stop screaming.”
The man who was hit had nothing but nice things to say about Bieber.
“Hour before my birthday hits, I get ran over by Justin Bieber. Isn’t that something. He’s a good kid though,” he said from what appeared to be a hospital.
“He got out, he was compassionate, he’s a good kid, accidents happen. Hopefully everything works out here.”
It appears to have been just an unfortunate accident, but Bieber seems to have handled it well for his part, diffusing tensions of an outraged paparazzi. Thankfully the man is ok!
