UPDATE: During Bieber’s tour, a guide pointed out that Frank was a fan of pop culture and she might have been a fan of his.

Abraham Foxman, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League, said Anne Frank was a fan of celebrities and pop culture and doesn’t have a problem with what Bieber wrote in the guestbook.

“I don’t see anything wrong with it,” he said.
