Perhaps in an attempt to start the new year with a clean slate,Justin Bieber has apologized for telling 15-year-old YouTube star JoJo Siwa to burn her new car.
The beef between the two – easily one of the year’s most unexpected – started shortly before Christmas when Siwa posted a photo of a custom BMW her parents had gifted her with a giant picture of the vlogger’s face plastered across the hood.
That’s when Bieber decided to chime in on a repost by boutique auto repair shop West Coast Customs and let the teen know exactly what he thought she should do with her new rainbow-colored 2 Series convertible, writing, simply, “Burn it.”
Whether or not the comment was meant in jest, Siwa made sure everyone knew exactly what Bieber had written,posting a screen grab with the Canadian’s snide remark circled in red.
Then, to show that she wasn’t going to let the 24-year-old newlywed slam her new wheels without a fight, Siwa turned the comment on him by turning it into her own personal tagline. On Sunday, she posted another photo of the car, this time with her and a cardboard cutout of a teenage Bieber in the front seats, along with the caption, “burn it.”
At that point, Bieber issued a me a culpa for his comment, letting Siwa know he hadn’t meant anything personal.
“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,”he tweeted.
Showing a savvy well beyond her years, Siwa accepted the apology, under one condition, tweeting, “it’s all good bro! you can perform at my 16th birthday party and we’ll call it good!”
