Sometimes, it is too late to say sorry.
That's the lesson the Chinese government taught world-famous punchline Justin Bieber, 23, this week. In a response to a concerned Bieber fan who asked her government why the Canadian pop singer hadn't been seen in the country in the last several years, Beijing's Municipal Bureau of Culture made it clear the dude is literally not welcome in China, due to a history of bad behavior and general douchebaggery, both in China and around the world.
"Justin Bieber is a gifted singer," the public statement reads, "but he is also a controversial young foreign singer."
"In order to maintain order in the Chinese market and purify the Chinese performance environment, it is not suitable to bring in badly behaved entertainers," it states. "We hope that as Justin Bieber matures, he can continue to improve his own words and actions, and truly become a singer beloved by the public."
