Justin Bieber has apologized after making a tongue-in-cheek comment about YouTuber-turned-TV-star JoJo Siwa's new car. The apology came after 15-year-old Siwa, who you may know from Dance Moms, posted a picture of a car her parents got her for Christmas. The BMW came complete with rainbow-colored rims and JoJo's face painted on the hood.
Bieber was among those suggesting that the custom paint job might not be the best look for the car. To be exact, according to Jezebel, he commented "burn it" three times under JoJo's post. JoJo's mom then flagged this to her followers, writing: "@justinbieber [crying laughing emoji] burn your own things."
This led to Bieber, who married Hailey Baldwin in September, issuing an apology and stating that while he still hates the car, he does not harbor any ill feeling toward JoJo herself.
@itsjojosiwa I have nothing against you it was the car and the colors I didn’t like I really hope you didn’t think it was malicious or mean spirited— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) December 30, 2018
It seems that JoJo took the whole thing in good humor, and even offered Bieber a gig if he fancies getting back into the music game in 2019. Phew.
