Pete Ford says Justin Bieber’s copped a bad rap in Australia

Entertainment reporter Pete Ford says Justin Bieber has unfairly copped a bit of a bad rap by some media during his Australian tour.

The Canadian popstar was filmed apparently swearing at camera crews camped near Richard Branson’s private island where Bieber was staying, but Ford said it wasn’t what it appeared.

‘This was reported as being a meltdown that he was on the attack, and furious,’ he said.

‘Then it turns out, he was doing impersonations of some of the characters from Summer Heights High.’

Ford said Bieber was ‘basically manhandled’ before blowing up at a fan and telling her she made him sick.
