Justin Bieber is on his way to Saudi Arabia and some people aren’t very happy about it. Biebs is going to KSA and some people want to remind everyone else about this new situation.

Ads were plastered on a truck that was seen cruising around the DTLA on Sunday. Those drive-by boards called for Bieber to cancel the gig.

The pop superstar was put on blast as his image was seen next to the Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman. Text also called for Biebs to end this association, or at least to call attention to what’s going on.

“Bieber, Your Saudi Boss Murders Journalists. Do the Right Thing, Cancel!” Another says, “It’s Not Too Late Now to Say Sorry. Don’t Sing for Saudi Arabia’s Dictator!”

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been accused of multiple human rights violations in the past. This is not a new cry from people who see American entertainment interests do business with Saudi Arabia. WWE and Saudi Arabia do a lot of business and they have been lambasted by the press several times in the past for their association with the controversial country.

We will keep an eye out to see if Justin Bieber decides to go back on his concert.

H Jenkins

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
