At the very real risk of incurring the hateful wrath of angry hoards of deranged Beliebers, I'm going to say there's a troubling number of athletes who have been befriended by Canada's curse on humanity, pop star Justin Bieber. The kid is many things, but a shrinking violet he is not!
Some athletes make it a regular event, while others come into The Biebs life for a brief moment in time.
However brief the moment, it is forever immortalized via Instagram and an accompanying incoherent tweet—a tweet which usually makes it blatantly clear that his mother let him drop out of school before classes got more specific than "English" and "Spelling."
Honestly, the length of their friendships and the reasons behind the meetings are completely irrelevant. The only thing that matters is that this keeps happening and I really think it should stop. After all...
In March 2013 TMZ posted a poll that asked "Is Bieber's Star Fading/Shining," after a concert in Portugal was cancelled because only 60 percent of the seats were sold. Of the nearly 150,000 respondents, 95 percent of them said it was FADING.
So why are athletes still hanging out with this kid? The following folks are in need of a stern talking to.
