Comedy Central Roasting Justin Bieber? Ugh.
I was so…dumb-founded when I found out that Comedy Central was roasting Justin Bieber. What? Why? Obviously there is plenty to poke fun of. But since when does an egg throwing, dui having, 20-year-old brat have enough moxie to get roasted on CC? Well, apparently the Biebs has decided that he has what it takes to get ripped by some of the funniest, and cruelest, in the business. RIP Biebs’ ego. RIP.
I’m not going to get started on his music, because ‘to each his own’ you know? Not a fan but maybe you are. Instead, let’s look back at some of the most memorable events in the Biebs’ past, or Bizzle’s past? Is he still using Bizzle? I really hope not. Let’s see what type of material the roast comics have to work with…
1) DUI – Driving Under the Influence
Biebs/Bizzle was arrested for DUI and reckless driving after being caught street racing in Miami Beach. Cops say that he admitted to drinking, smoking weed and the use of prescription drugs. Oh, and he wasn’t even legal drinking age at the time.
2) The Egg Incident
Ever heard that good fences make good neighbors? Well Justin’s ex-neighbor would have to disagree. The pop start was repeatedly asked to keep it down and slow his roll on neighborhood streets. How did this mature, then 19-year-old respond? With eggs of course! Bizzle egged the complaining neighbors house and made the same mistake many social media babies make. He let his friends record it. He later plead no contest, paid restitution of over $80k and was required to attend anger management.
3) The ATV Incident
Bieber was riding an ATV with Disney-raised hottie Selena Gomez on the back. There was an accident between them and a minivan, resulting in a physical confrontation. Bieber went to the local police station where he was arrested and later released on a promise to appear.
4) The Limo Driver
Justin has been accused of roughing up a limo driver that was taking him and a few buddies around Toronto following a hockey game. The driver claims he was punched in the back of the head several times. Seriously? Who punches a limo driver?
5) The Photographer
A photographer in Hawaii claims that when he left his camera unattended on the beach that Bieb’s bodyguard tried to steal his memory card. The bodyguard later plead guilty to allegations that he assaulted the camera man, destroyed his camera equipment and stole his keys. Biebs was not charged due to lack of evidence.
6) ‘We The People’ Petition
By now everyone has heard of the deportation petition started by anti-Bizzle folks. Check out the content of the petition:
“We the people of the United States feel that we are being wrongly represented in the world of pop culture. We would like to see the dangerous, reckless, destructive, and drug abusing, Justin Bieber deported and his green card revoked. He is not only threatening the safety of our people but he is also a terrible influence on our nations youth. We the people would like to remove Justin Bieber from our society.”
I mean COME ON! If that isn’t roasting material I don’t know what is! The petition has over 270,000 signatures with more being added every day. The White House responded as expected, not officially addressing the request (as required by the official petition process) but by insisting this issue needs to be handled by federal and state authorities through the Justice System.
It’ll be interesting to see how Comedy Central roasts this young guy. I do know that he’s given them PLENTY of material to use to get it done.
