Justin Bieber's Prince Comment Angers Fans

Justin Bieber's Prince Comment Angers Fans

Tributes have poured in from across the world since news broke of Prince's death. Musicians in particular have been expressing emotional sentiments about the pop icon's death, but it doesn't look like Justin Bieber is one of them.

The drama kicked off after guitarist Andrew Watt shared an Instagram post honoring Prince as a "guitar idol." In his tribute, Watt called the late artist the "last of the greatest living performers."

Perhaps Bieber took offense to that last remark. The Canadian pop star allegedly posted a comment to Watt's post, writing "well not the last greatest living performer." The comment has since been deleted.

Though some fans have jumped to Bieber's defence, arguing he didn't intend to besmirch Prince's legacy, the Twittersphere is mostly not feeling the Biebs right now.

Gossip Cop, meanwhile, writes that Bieber's PR team insists the comment was "fabricated." The singer has yet to address the matter on Twitter.
