Justin Bieber

Radio Station Gives Him Silent Treatment

Until He Goes to Rehab

A radio station in Canada is trying to do what Scooter Braun can't ... get Justin Bieber into rehab ... but the station has a secret weapon.

Hot 89.9 in Ottawa just radioed out to its listeners -- Justin is persona non grata on its airwaves UNTIL he checks himself into a facility to get badly needed help for drug abuse.

So far Justin has laughed off all attempts to get him into treatment. 

Sounds good in theory ... but seriously, the guy hasn't had a hit in a while so who's gonna really notice?

As a resident of Toronto, Canada... I can safely say no one gives a **** about Hot 89.9 nor has anyone outside Ottawa even heard of it. I'm not a bieber fan .... but this hiatus ... literally affects no one.

Even when he was popular he wasn't really a radio star, he was a YouTube sensation. While I applaud the station, it is kind of an empty gesture since I'm sure that if Bieber had a huge hit right now they wouldn't be doing this.

FORCING him to rehab will not help him. He needs to grow up, take some responsibility and go on his own will. THEN he will get better.

When an A-Lister gets in trouble.

Everyone comes in for a taste - some free PR.

B-listers, mayors, radio stations.

I'm waiting to see what the top two radio stations in my home town do. They've both posted the photo and asked for comments, NOT ONE of those comments was in Justina's favor. For all the REAL TALENT out there, no reason they shouldn't pull this kid. BTW, one of those stations is "VIRGIN RADIO" how about "SIR RICHARD BRANSON" step up to the plate and make it absolutely known that not one of his stations will EVER play his music again until he checks himself. Man is a bazillionaire, he can afford to lose the 25 or so Bieber fans with 10 thousand accounts and nicknames.
