Justin Bieber has been filmed appearing to throw a fan’s gift out of a car window in a video that has circulated online.
The incident is thought to have taken place in New York earlier this month. According to The Daily Mail, an unnamed Argentinian teenager claimed to have handed Bieber her country’s flag.
The fan reportedly wrote on Facebook: “Yesterday I was at the hotel at 10am and I stayed for hours outside waiting. When he was going out, guards told us to back off, so I grabbed the flag and threw it at him. Of course it was not my intention for it to fall close to his face, so I apologised a thousand times. He looked at me… grabbed the flag, threw it on the pavement and shut the window.”
“I’m 15 and he could have treated me better since I apologised and he could hear it,” she allegedly added.
Bieber has not yet addressed the incident on social media.
In 2013, Bieber was criticised after kicking the Argentine flag offstage at one of his shows.
He has also been in trouble with Argentinian law enforcers after allegedly assaulting a photographer in the country.
Bieber recently announced that he would not be holding fan meet-and-greet events after calling them “depressing”.
