Justin Bieber visits Anne Frank House, leaves controversial message

Posted:

 

AMSTERDAM (AP) -- Justin Bieber has visited the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, with a museum spokeswoman saying the Canadian pop star wrote in the guestbook that he hoped Frank "would have been a Belieber" if she had lived.

 

Museum spokeswoman Maatje Mostart confirmed Sunday that Bieber visited Friday evening.

"Belieber" is what Bieber fans call themselves. Anne Frank was a Jewish teenager who hid with her family in a small apartment above a warehouse during the Nazi occupation of World War II. Her family was caught and deported, and Anne died in Bergen Belsen. Her diary has become the most widely read document to emerge from the Holocaust.

Bieber's whole note read: "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a Belieber."
