    21 Justin Bieber Fans Who Don't Know What A Shrine Is

    This is just sad.

    by ,

    Last month, Justin Bieber visited and prayed at a controversial shrine in Japan.

    Although Bieber offered an apology on Instagram to any Chinese people offended by the incident, he failed to recognise the importance of the shrine to Koreans.

    생각이 없으면 어쩔 수 없구나 저스틴비버 실시간 급상승어로 올라와서 봤더니 야스쿠니 신사 참배, 저스틴비버나 정몽준 아들이나, 머리가 있기는 하는 거니???

    This Twitter user said: "You can't help a person who doesn't think."

    The pop star issued a further apology on Thursday evening:

    found out that when i was in Japan I hurt my fans in Korea when visiting that shrine. That was never my intent. I love Korea. Im sorry

    And despite many of his followers, or Beliebers, supporting his message...

    aw my baby apologized for a second time for that Korean shrine thing, such a nice guy honestly, obviously he's upset about the situation

    1. ... there were a surprisingly large number who responded with bewildered posts, because they have no idea what a shrine is. Here are some of them:

    21. The most compelling defence of Bieber's actions might just be that he himself *PLOT TWIST* might not know what a shrine is.

    he shouldn't have to apologize tho how would he know what a shrine even is
