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 CelebJihad.com, a satirical website á la The Onion. Oops!
