A timeline of Justin Bieber’s most shameful, hateful moments

It’s no secret that Justin Bieber’s past is frustratingly, deliciously sordid. From leaving a brothel in Brazil wearing only a white bed sheet to allegedly fighting with actor Orlando Bloom in Spain, the 23-year-old singer has become just as famous for his egregious, loutish off-stage actions as for his music.

But now, after China banned him from entering the country for “bad behavior,” there’s an official government policy out there tied to his misadventures — some of which have landed him in jail. Let’s cast our memories back for a moment and take a look at just some of the many, many incidents that have marked his transformation from an innocent, doe-eyed teen performer into the target of a restrictive foreign policy.

Now, we couldn’t make a list of all Bieber’s various trespasses. Time forces a limit on such things. But here — submitted for your approval — are just a few of the incidents that might have landed him on the wrong side of a Communist nation of 1.37 billion people.

May 27, 2012: While at a Calabasas shopping mall with his then-girlfriend Selena Gomez, Bieber took a swing at one paparazzo after the man was reportedly blocking his car.

March 3, 2013: At a concert on the European leg of his “Believe” tour, Justin Bieber left fans furious after arriving on stage almost two hours late because of “technical issues.”

April 12, 2013: During a visit to the Anne Frank Museum in Amsterdam, Bieber left an interesting note in the guestbook. “Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber,” Bieber wrote.

May 2013: According to a waiver obtained by TMZ, people entering Bieber’s house must not disclose through media any information about the activities, parties and events he holds. And if they do, they’re liable for a $5 million fine.

May 17, 2013: After his pet capuchin monkey OG Mally was quarantined in Germany because Bieber could not supply the paperwork needed for international travel, Bieber abandoned his pet by not supplying the proper documents. Following the incident, he was forced to pay $8,000 in fees to cover to cost of transporting the animal to Serengeti Park in Copenhagen.

July 2013: In a video leaked by TMZ, Bieber is shown taking a “quick little piss break” in a janitor’s mop bucket while yelling “Fuck Bill Clinton” to his friends.

October 2013: Bieber is photographed visiting the Great Wall of China. Instead of enjoying a tour of the great architectural triumph on his own two feet, the singer was carried aloft by his staff in a scene resembling either the progress of an emperor or a Bar Mitzvah.

November 2013: Bieber was spotted jumping into a car outside of Rio de Janerio’s notable brothel Centaurus wearing what appeared to be only a white sheet. He was later kicked out of his hotel for “breaking the rules.”
