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.

Anyway, you people need to calm the f*ck down. Every time someone says something about gays you get all up in arms. Where did we get you wimps from? no one can say a word in this country unless we are bigots, homophobes, e.t.c. And by the way, who in the f8ck made you asses the moral police? Start manning up in this country, you frigging wimps.

Calling someone that in and of itself dosen't mean you are homophobic. We all called each other those names as kids and we weren't thinking about gays. It was just to get someone to respond

And if he put his hands on the guy, well, it was an assault, regardless of what the guy said.

I understand exactly what Justin has to go through, and he will be dealing with crap like this his whole life.

The Dad that proudly announced he was a lawyer needs to be slapped with a lawsuit for not teaching his son to not call people the F word. Also, the piece of sh*t son needs to be in jail for a hate crime, and for bullying and for threatening as when you corner someone that is basically holding someone against their will. Shame on the dad for announcing who he was, we can see he is a D!*k for sure, and his son is no better.
Even straight guys have to be called this and we need to change this now where we call people things like this.

Bieber can do no wrong. Bieber was probably winning 100 to 1. Bieber shoots lasers out of his eyes.

I don't like Bieber but nobody should have to be subjected to any form of bullying...for any reason.

This just goes to show just how bad the bullying situation is.

Doesn't matter if The Bieb is gay, straight or bi...bullies have no place in our society.

I really do feel homophobic bullying is a true sign of weakness on the part of punks. But I will say this -- Bieber's recent release of his own line of nail polish give's these idiots grist for the mill.

Haha.. How much did SCOOTER pay you guys to spin this story? I'm sorry but that is not homophobic bullying unless Bieber is gay. It's one kid acting like a jerk to another kid with a greedy father butting in.

So those of you think it is funny that he is bullied by a 12 year old, but in the same breath are bullying him. How old are you? 20, 30, 40 or older? So you think it is fine for him to be bullied by someone your age? Sitting there all big and bad in front of your computer!! You are all full of bullysh*t!

Where was the supervision at the place? Sounds like Justin has a suit against the establishment and deservedly so.

"justsayin" It is not just "name calling" anymore, you can be KILLED for being gay nowadays, it is much more now, and treating it is "sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me" but actually, words to hurt in this case, because the name calling has LEAD to other more serious consequences for its victims. Gay people are being tormented nowadays even in their own gay bars, a place they want to sit and relax and be themselves and phobes are knocking on their doors now getting in THEIR beeswax. One day maybe you will have a gay child, us straight people are the ones that are producing the gay children so if you do, hope you will love your child as much if they are gay as you would if they were straight. And hope you don't teach them that they NEED to put up with someone calling them the F word, because NO ONE should have to put up with being harassed. No one.
