The Bieber Boycott

-Submitted by David Drumm (Nal), Guest Blogger

Construction worker and Brooklyn native Andy Sullivan is one of the most vocal opponents of Park51, the mosque and cultural center near ground zero. Sullivan has appeared on the Fox Business channel touting his efforts to enlist other construction workers to sign a petition that states they won’t work on the Park51 site. Now, Sullivan has set his sights on Justin Bieber, the Canadian pop sensation. Sullivan is encouraging a boycott of all things Bieber.

Sullivan cites a Bieber interview from Tiger Beat.

In the interview, Bieber reportedly said:

Muslims should be allowed to build a mosque anywhere they want. Coming from Canada, I’m not used to this level of intolerance, eh. I was like seven when September 11th went down, and frankly I’m surprised people are still going on about it. Move on, already!

Bieber went on to say that Muslims are “super cool,” Christians are “lame-o-rama.”

The Bieber story has gone viral. There’s just one teensy problem. The interview was a hoax. It’s from, a satirical website á la The Onion. Oops!

  1. Nal,

    Thanks very much.

    It is very refreshing to see that Andy Sullivan apologized.

    And, I too apologize for being rude.



  2. Sullivan actually apologized for being quick to assume that Justin Bieber had supported what is a good and legal development. Interesting. He can admit to being wrong about Bieber statements, but not about the trumped up nonsense that he spreads about the devleopment itself.

  3. One wonders how many of Beibers’ 13 year old female fans Sullivan will influence. Though one need not wonder for very long.

  4. Andy Sullivan should just get a life and actually remember the religious tolerance that our country was establshied under. Andy probably thinks this is a Christian nation too. He would be wrong, but going on his premise, WWJD with the Muslim community center?

  5. Maybe Andy can get on the Joe Scarborough ticket. Joe had a spread in the Parade magazine today. He’s been trying for a couple of years to not let his head explode so much. Unfortunately, sometimes it still gets away from him.

  6. UGHS.such nonesense, ” boycott all things Bieber.” Sheeesh give it up Sullivan, your barking up the wrong generational tree……..

  7. Bud,

    lol….too many so much information so little time to digest the facts and implications….so a decision is made….

  8. Well, maybe Sullivan is ready to run for office he has all of the facts he needs….

  9. Let’s see if Sullivan has the balls to apologize…

    Nahhh. Didn’t think so.

    Wonder how many subscriptions to “Tiger Beat” Sullivan has anyway.

  10. Older people are the only people objecting to him. Jealousy, I presume.
