Museum responds to Justin Bieber's Anne Frank comment
Canadian pop singer takes flak for museum guest book entry CBC News Posted: Apr 14, 2013 12:55 PM ET Last Updated: Apr 15, 2013 2:37 PM ET

 

Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber has apparently committed what Facebook users are calling a self-serving faux pas while visiting the Amsterdam museum honouring Anne Frank, the Jewish teen whose famous diary chronicles what it was like to be in hiding from the Nazis during the Second World War.

According to the Facebook page of the Anne Frank House, Bieber, 19, toured the museum with his entourage for more than hour on Friday evening and before leaving, he signed a guest book with the following message:

"Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."

The singer's fans, mostly teen girls, are known as "Beliebers."

An official statement posted Monday praised the young singer.

"We think it is very positive that he took the time and effort to visit our museum. He was very interested in the story of Anne Frank and stayed for over an hour. We hope that his visit will inspire his fans to learn more about her life and hopefully read the diary," the museum said in an official Facebook post.

Via social media, users said the entry showed disrespect for Frank, who died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in March 1945.

One person commenting on the museum's Facebook page criticized the singer as being "way too full of himself," adding, Frank is "an important historical figure, so show some respect."

Another wrote: "Glad he went, but the last sentence is VERY self-serving. He missed the lessons of Anne totally."

Yet another said, "Way to use Anne Frank for self-promotion."

"I hope he revisits the museum again once he is older and hopefully wiser and truly understand the messages of peacefulness, humility and respect that are wound within those walls," one woman wrote.

Bieber is in the middle of a European tour and had a concert scheduled in Arnhem in the Netherlands on Saturday night.

BBC correspondent Anna Holligan, based in the Netherlands, wrote on Twitter that she confirmed with the Amsterdam museum's press office that Bieber did write the note in a "special guest book."

There has been no comment from the singer on the museum visit.

whole lot of hoopla about nothing. while i think the singer is an annoying flamer, his critics need to focus on more prominent examples of his self-adulation. it seems a bit of a stretch to accuse him of disrespect for anne frank. he merely wrote in a guest book of how he was obviously a fan of hers, and mused that if she was still alive perhaps she would have been a fan of his as well. big freakin deal...

The kid is 19 and his head is filled with stories of how great he is, told to him by people who are getting rich off him.  I would not expect any different comment.  Chances are the kid did not even want to go spend an hour in a museum but his PR people twisted his arm.

 

He's a good kid, but still just a kid. As far as being a twit, most 19 year old boys in the west seem like twits to me.  But, unlike us, they still have time to grow up.

A local girl here in the UK won a competition to meet justin at one of his concerts, They interviewed her on the radio next day

 

She went, she met him, He did not even speak, he might just as well have been a wax dummy. but she was still pissing her pants over him.

 

I dont see the attraction,

I'll forgive him.  You expect the young to make mistakes its when they are old and still making mistakes that it gets very embarrassing.

I'm old school, went to the Buble concert in BKK, he asked the audience "who was Ray Charles "; silence!

Next, he asked "who was Michael Jackson"; audience screams hystericaly; go figure?
