This Is Actually A Shrine Celebrating Japanese War Criminals

When Justin Bieber is in America, he gets high and drag races. When he goes overseas, he creates international incidents that could potentially provoke WWIII. Sorry, Canada. You gotta send more than 100 soldiers this time.

Bieber posted an Instagram photo from the Yasukuni Shrine, which he believed to be a place of prayer. It's actually a controversial tribute to Japan's World War II soldiers—or, from the point of view of China and South Korea, war criminals who routinely tortured prisoners.

Bieber has since removed this photo, but due to the shitstorm in the comments, he issued an apology.

"While in Japan I asked my driver to pull over for which I saw a beautiful shrine. I was mislead to think the Shrines were only a place of prayer. To anyone I have offended I am extremely sorry. I love you China and I love you

"While in Japan I asked my driver to pull over for which I saw a beautiful shrine." Okay there, Walt Whitman. Why don't you go spraypaint your nails.
