Justin Bieber is not allowed to get angry anymore ... but he has no problem getting other people angry ... by cruising into a restaurant that has become synonymous with homophobia ... in a really ugly car we might add.
Justin -- who just copped a plea deal in the egging case by promising to deal with his anger issues by attending classes -- celebrated by going to Chick-fil-A in Hollywood in his custom cheetah print Audi R8.
Everyone thought Justin outgrew the whip a year ago ... that's the last time we spotted it ... get it.
So now we know ... a leopard and an Audi can't change it's spots ... we'll see if Justin can.

Katt Williams and cars on PCH are bad news this week -- the comedian crashed his Rolls-Royce into a car-full of people he says taunted him and cut him off in traffic ... and Katt claims they caused the accident on purpose.
Katt tells us ... he was driving on PCH Monday night when a beat up Honda pulled up alongside him and started taking cell phone pics, and as he put it, "talking s*** and trying to start a fight."
According to Katt ... the Honda swerved in front of him ... forcing him to slam on the brakes. Katt says he couldn't stop in time and the Rolls rear ended the lesser car. He's convinced the Honda people were looking for a payday.
Cops tell us the Honda driver was taken to the hospital with minor back injuries.
The Honda driver accused Katt of speeding ... but cops didn't buy it. They tell us they believe Katt -- who found more trouble on PCH 24 hours later.
We broke the story ... Tuesday evening Katt's security guard tased a guy who kicked Katt's car.
Smashes Car on Sunset Blvd.
7/6/2014 10:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Californication" star Madeline Zima smashed her car into another vehicle on Sunset Blvd. Saturday night.
Madeline rear-ended another car in West Hollywood. It was bad enough that Zima's car had to be towed.
No injuries to speak of.
Madeline's friends consoled her -- she was clearly shaken up. Our photog asked her what happened ... but the 28-year old wasn't in the mood to talk. Maybe that was wise ... right to remain silent and all that.
USEFUL TIDBIT: If you rear-end another car, you're pretty much screwed. No defense.
FAA Clears Singer
In Weed Flight
7/4/2014 6:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber got a big break ... despite the fact that he and his buds turned a private jet into a hotbox during a flight to the Super Bowl ... the FAA has cleared the singer after an investigation.
As TMZ previously reported ... the plane was stopped after it arrived at Teterboro airport in New Jersey because of a strong odor of pot coming from the plane.
Nonetheless the FAA determined neither Biebs nor any of the other passengers interfered with the flight crew ... so case closed.
That doesn't mean Bieber won't be stopped by U.S. Customs the next time he flies to the U.S. from another country. Because of his criminal cases ... we're told Biebs will very like be grilled the way he was during that Super Bowl trip ... grilled for hours before being allowed to leave.

These are the Best of Times for Philly firefighters ... because Jukebox Heroes Foreigner and Styx just dumped a bunch of cash on the real-life heroes who saved their tour buses from some Unusual Heat.
No Head Games here ... the '70s and '80s rock Renegades performed Thursday night in Camden, NJ -- and decided to say thanks to the Blue Collar Man.
A rep for Styx tells us both bands decided to donate all the proceeds from their CD sales at the show to the Philadelphia Fire Department's Local #22 Widow Fund.
Of course, the Hot Blooded firefighters made an Urgent response Wednesday when flames engulfed two tour buses -- yes, two ... no Double Vision.
So, if you Want to Know What Love Is -- there ya go, firefighters. And you too, Mr. Roboto.
I'm On a Boat, Bitch!

Justin Bieber has some gall ... having a better 4th than just about any true American ... knocking back a few cold ones on an enormous yacht.
Biebs ... was off the coast of Miami Beach -- shirtless of course -- drinking a frosty Corona on the bow of his rented luxury vessel.
Last time the pop star was in Miami Beach he was busted for DUI ... so this is a safe move unless Biebs takes the helm.
Enjoy your sparklers and frozen hot dogs this weekend.
Styx & Foreigner
Tour Buses Go Up in Flames
7/2/2014 10:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
4:54 PM PT -- Reps for the bands tell us ... no one lost any equipment or personal belongings in the fire ... the bands are on a three day break and everyone had taken most of their things off the buses.
Two tour buses for a Styx and Foreigner concert turned into vehicular torches early Wednesday afternoon in Philly ... TMZ has learned.
It's unclear how the fire started, but we're told one bus went up in flames ... and the fire spread to the second vehicle.
The buses were parked and NOT occupied when they caught fire. We're told the buses are "crew buses" and not "band buses."
The bands are scheduled to perform together Thursday in New Jersey.
In case you don't remember Styx -- you should be ashamed of yourself -- they had a bunch of hits including "Babe," "Renegade," "Mr. Roboto" and "Come Sail Away."
As for the concert, the show presumably will go on.

Justin Bieber was a full-on good Samaritan Sunday ... rushing to the aid of 3 of Floyd Mayweather's kids who were involved in a bad car crash.
Here's what we know. Floyd was on the red carpet Sunday afternoon for the BET Awards when he got word his kids were in a bad crash in L.A. Floyd happened to be on the phone with Bieber at the time and told the singer how bummed he was that he was on the red carpet and not there for his kids.
Bieber happened to be in an SUV not too far away from the crash and jumped into action, racing to the scene.
Biebs told the cops he was friends of the family and wanted to check on their well-being.
We're told it was a multi-vehicle collision ... several cars and a motorcycle. The kids were not seriously injured -- one had a busted lip -- and Bieber tried comforting them by playing his new music for them.
Bieber was then allowed to put the kids in his SUV and drove them to Floyd ... then returned to the accident scene to inform cops the children were with the boxer.
