The Word: Justin Bieber got carried up the Great Wall of China like a giant baby

Justin Bieber Great Wall of China

Justin Bieber has been on such a single-minded campaign to convince us all that he’s no longer a little girl and is now, in fact, a very adult man recently that it seems like the kid might have self-actualized himself into a geriatric.

At least, that’s the only explanation I can come up with to explain why the hell the guy needed to be carried the length of the Great Wall of China. (Spoiler alert: it’s, like, a really long wall.)

On Monday, photos surfaced on the Interwebz of the Biebs being carried up one of wonders of the modern world on the shoulders of two actual adult men (bodyguards, I’m guessing?). What, they couldn’t find a douchebag-sized papoose?

I mean, honestly, I don’t know who I’m more disgusted with — Bieber for being such an egregious tool that he would make his bodyguards carry him up a monument like the boy prince of freaking Siam, his bodyguards for not quitting on the spot and also pushing him into a puddle or something on their way out of there, or myself for taking the time to write about this. But, hey, that’s my job, right?
