Thousands of “beliebers,” or fans of pop superstar Justin Bieber, have taken to the streets of the Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, to protest what they have called a “ban” by the government that allegedly impeded the Canadian singer to present his Purpose Tour in the South American country.
A couple of days ago Bieber wrote to his Argentine fans on Twitter apologizing for not including that country in his tour, alleging legal troubles.
“Argentinian beliebers I would like nothing more than to bring the Purpose Tour there but until the legal conditions change there I can't,” Bieber said.
During his last visit to the country in 2013, Bieber was seen as disrespecting Argentina’s flag during a concert and last year an Argentinian judge issued an arrest warrant for him related to an alleged assault of a photographer.
A court revoked the warrant ,but the charges against him still stand, according to The Guardian.
Under the hastag #MarchaBeliever the Argentinian fans of the 22-year-old singer have demanded authorities grant him safe passage so he can perform in that country.
Bieber is one of the most successful singers in the pop music industry, with nearly 82 million followers in Twitter and 10 billion total video views on Vevo.
