During a Purpose tour show in Manchester, England last week, Justin Bieber incurred the wrath of Beliebers worldwide when footage emerged of the star storming offstage because of the unrelenting, decibel-shattering screams from fans in the crowd during song breaks. Now, in a since-deleted Twitter post, the Biebs has addressed what prompted his walk off, stating in a letter:

People tend to want to shut you down. What I mean by that is … people try to twist things, some people don’t want to listen. But I simply feel like, if I didn’t use this platform to say how I truly feel, and if I didn’t use this platform to be the man that I know I am, and speak from what’s in my heart, then I’m doing myself injustice, and I’m not doing anybody in this audience any justice.

There’s going to be times where I say the wrong thing, because I’m human. But I don’t pretend to be perfect and I hope to God that, you know, I don’t say the right thing all the time because if that was the case then I’d be a robot, and I’m just, I’m always going to try and be myself on this stage.

When people try and twist things and say, “Justin’s angry at his fans. He doesn’t want his fans to scream,” that’s not at all what I was doing. All I was simply doing was wanting people to listen, to kind of hear me out a little bit. Certain people … certain cities aren’t going to want to hear me out, and you know, sometimes it’s my job to say, “Hey, I’m not going to try to force anything.” I just appreciate you guys tonight, listening to me and understanding and rocking with me. You guys are truly amazing.

The incident came less than a week after Bieber branded fans at a show in Birmingham as "obnoxious" for again talking as he tried to proselytize to the masses. For those attending JB shows in the future, perhaps the moral of the lesson here is to stay quiet (or just don't scream like a lunatic) when the kid is trying to shoot some real talk.
