In a recent tweet, Jeremy Bieber, father of pop sensation Justin Bieber, ignited a wave of controversy with his message during Pride month, emphasizing family values.
Standing up for straight pride, Bieber drew the ire of the LGBT mobs.
The tweet featured a rainbow flag meme accompanied by the statement, “Don’t forget to thank a straight person this month for your existence.”
Jeremy is a father to four children with three different women, presumably conceived in acts of straight, heterosexual intercourse.
He further commented on the younger generation’s choice of glorification, stating his disbelief in some of the things they embrace.https://twitter.com/JeremyBieber/status/1665669760166645760
The backlash against Jeremy’s remarks was evident on social media platforms, with many users making a number of ad hominem attacks on the pop patriarch. Some criticized his fashion choices and compared him to celebrities from a different era, suggesting that his glory days had long passed.
Others highlighted Jeremy’s less prominent role during Justin’s formative years, effectively implying that Jeremy was a deadbeat who left Justin to be raised by a single mother.
Despite the complexities in their relationship, Justin has consistently supported his father’s growing family and shares public displays of affection for his half-siblings. This demonstrates Justin’s commitment to acknowledging and embracing his extended family, regardless of any personal disagreements.
Following the backlash, Jeremy posted a seemingly passive-aggressive apology on Twitter, stating that he did not intend to offend anyone and that he understood the concerns raised.
“Acknowledging the nuclear family is offensive? My apologies to those offended. Was not my intent. Not that my opinion matters.”https://twitter.com/JeremyBieber/status/1666474754168041474
However, his apology was met with skepticism from some Twitter users, who believed he was fully aware of the impact his statement would have. They argued that Bieber’s apology appeared insincere, suggesting that he had deliberately sought attention by involving his son in the controversy.
Justin Bieber has not publicly responded to his father’s controversial remarks, but a source close to him allegedly told the Daily Mail that Justin was “mad” at Jeremy for dragging him into controversy.
