Tulum, Mexico – Justin Bieber was asked to leave the Mayan archaeological site of Tulum on Thursday after he tried to climb a restricted archaeological site despite signs forbidding it and the warnings from security guards.
Bieber, 21, was visiting the seaside ruins of Tulum with a group of friends when he stepped into a fenced-off restricted area and climbed up the ruins. According to an official, security yelled at the pop singer asking him to get off the historical site, but he ignored their demands and continued his ascent. Then, more security personnel appeared to physically remove him from the ruins. The guards called the police but Bieber and his friends were escorted from the site by the time the cops arrived.
Apparently climbing restricted historical areas was not Beiber’s only offensive behavior. Police were also called to the incident, after he pulled down his pants and then shouted at security guards who tried to stop him. Local reports that staff claimed he was clearly under the influence of alcohol.
Adriana Velazquez-Morlet, director of Mexico’s Natural Institute of Anthropology and History and obvious non-Belieber, told Entertainment Tonight about the singer’s antics, saying:
“I can confirm to you that Mr. Bieber was kicked out of the Tulum archaeological site yesterday. He and his mates pulled his pants down and insulted our staff at the site. We have a very strict policy of conservation and respect of the Mexican cultural heritage that applies equally to all our visitors, whether or not they’re famous.”
Despite the tense scenario on Thursday, the director for the National Institute of Anthropology and History in Tulum said that Bieber was welcome back to the sacred ground and doesn’t even have to apologize as long as he follows the rules every other tourist has to follow.
This isn’t Bieber’s first scandal in South America. Back in 2013, In Argentina, he was accused of offending by dragging the national flag around on stage and had to tweet apologies. He also faced some inconvenience in Brazil where was accused of defacing a public building with graffiti.
