Justin Bieber's questionable graffiti is, at least, legal, he claims.
Justin Bieber has made a number of questionable decisions since arriving in Brazil: Hanging out at a brothel, tagging various buildings, letting some girl film him sleeping. But the tagging, at least, he can explain.
JB posted a number of pictures of his spray art on his Instagram. In the caption for one of them, he claims he had permission to tag everywhere he did. "Every place I have tagged has been approved I do not suggest tagging private property.. I still suck but i have fun doing it ;)" he captioned the above pic.
He may not be out of hot water yet, though. Some observers say that Bieber's monkey painting, crowned and bowtied though it is, is racist - it bears a resemblance to old-fashioned caricatures of African-Americans. Oh boy. This is about to be awful. All in favor of going back to sleep until Bieber leaves Brazil, say "aye."
