Justin Bieber

Homophobic Bullying Victim

10/17/2010 6:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Bieber was on the receiving end of the kind of hate-filled bullying that has made headlines recently --- during a laser tag match Friday night, he defended himself from an aggressive kid who referred to Bieber as a "faggot" ... sources close to the investigation tell TMZ.

We're told that during the game of laser tag, one kid went out of his way to target Justin repeatedly (a violation of the code of honor of laser tag, if there is such a thing).

Sources say that Bieber became frustrated when the kid cornered him and wouldn't stop shooting and when Bieber told him, "That's enough" ... the kid responded, "What are you gonna do about it, faggot?"

We're told a shocked Bieber replied, "Excuse me?" Sources say the other kid responded, "You're a faggot" and then put his hand out toward Bieber and Bieber pushed it away as he left.

Contrary to several news reports, we're told Bieber never struck the other boy.

Law enforcement tells TMZ it was the boy's father who filed the complaint hours later ... and our source says the father was heard at the scene repeatedly telling people, "I'm a lawyer."

The police investigation is ongoing, but our sources say police already know the fault does not lie with Bieber.

Faked injuries...what is this bully, the Tila Tequila of Canada??

As much as we mock the Beib, you can't help feel bad for him because he's going to be surrounded by jealous dbags like this all the time.

here it comes...this is a terrible attempt to deflect the fact this little guy has yet to come out of the closet..first the awful pics in the back of mom's honda and now this. They should just embrace his Adam Lambert and leave it alone.

here's an idea...maybe they shouldnt cut hsi hair like the little dutch boy and he will look a little more masculine.

That kid's "lawyer" dad is a Grade A jerk. What an embarrassment to his 12 year old son. Way to teach your kid, idiot.

Bieber should quit Laser Tag and take up Practical Shooting. An armed society is a polite society.

Because of his celebrity, Bieber did the right thing to walk away. He has too much to loose if he reacted like most people would have.

When that bully's identity becomes public, he better change his name and appearance because there are enough unstable Bieber fanatics out there who will make it their personal Jihad to reach out and touch him and his lawyer father.

I am not a homophobe in anyway and I am FOR gay rights. BUT.. bullying has been a huge issue everywhere for a very long time and it's not something new that only applies to gay youth. It really sucks that it's taken this long to get any attention drawn to the problem. Again, I have nothing against gay people at all, but I don't really understand why the bully issue is only now drawing attnetion when it's been a problem for decades! People get bullied for being too fat, not pretty enough, not thin enough, being too smart, not being smart enough, being black, jewish, you name it and a bully can find a reason to relentlessly harrass someone for it.

I agree that this kid was probably put up to picking on Bieber by his ambulance chasing father, who is thinking at the least they'll get a settlement out of any litigation/mediation. Good thing JB kept a cool head about him and didn't take the bait. If he IS sued, I hope he uses his fortune to fight this to the bitter end!

It's not likely that people can sue one another for conduct during laser tag and paint ball games... waiver signed before entering and all.

Sort of like things that go one between players during pro sports, or between players and fans during the game.

weak impotent people bully ... their mouths and their crooked thoughts try to make up for the hatred they have for themselves
we have raised a generation of them and now we are stuck with them...however ....they can only go so far .... when I get feed back from those of you who will now bully me ... I will smile and know I am correct in this assumption.
