Justin Bieber’s face as a door mat, now that’s not something you hear about often, as his fans have him so high up on a pedestal that he’s usually far from the floor. The same can’t be said for Blackhawk fans, according to Yahoo Sports on July 30, 2013.
Justin Bieber’s visit to the Blackhawks stadium this summer didn’t sit well with the hockey fans as he stood on the team’s logo while snapping pictures of the Stanley Cup. He also touched the Stanley Cup, which is something you don’t do unless you’ve actually earned it.
It was Bieber standing on the team’s logo that really got the fans in an uproar. In the teen crooner’s defense, he didn’t know that it was disrespectful to step on the logo, which is in the middle of the floor, but this is a tradition with NHL teams.
The NHL teams either rope their logos and some carry it a step further like the Boston Bruins, who have an employee who just stands near their logo during games to make sure no one steps on it. Bieber’s mistake got Blackhawks fans really angry, especially since he’s not offered up a public apology to the fans.
He apologized to the team privately while still in the dressing room that day, but that’s still not enough for some of the fans to drop the subject.
Justin Bieber’s face paid for that mistake over and over again at the recent Blackhawks convention. A couple of fans created a giant picture of Justin’s face and made a big logo out of it, about the same size as the Blackhawks logo that he stood on.
The two men brought the logo to the convention to let Blackhawks fans get their revenge by standing on Bieber’s face, but almost immediately they were told to pick it up and move on. This didn’t ruin their day of revenge on Bieber, they brought the logo to the people outside and all around the convention. The fans actually had a ball stepping on the Biebs and smiling for the pictures.
They even put Justin’s face under the Zamboni and they also subjected his image to various other levels of humiliation, but what those were are not mentioned. It sounds as if these Blackhawk fans were going for that old “eye for an eye” payback!
