Justin Bieber enrages Chicago Blackhawks fans by stepping on logo

July 10 (UPI) -- Justin Bieber's public relations team must be working overtime these days.

Soon after video surfaced of the 19-year-old pop star urinating in a restaurant mop bucket and dissing Bill Clinton, he unknowingly insulted hockey fans by stepping on the Chicago Blackhawks logo in the team's locker room on Tuesday night.

Bieber might be Canadian, but he's apparently unaware of a superstition long-held by fans and players of his nation's favorite sport. Do not step on the team logo.



Blackhawks player Brandon Bollig joined in on the Twitter commentary:


Social media users were even angry that Bieber deigned to touch the Stanley Cup, which the Blackhawks won last month.


But a rep for the Blackhawks told TMZ that the team isn't taking it personally.

"[Bieber] did accidentally step on the logo but was immediately asked to step off and was extremely sorry as soon as he realized what he did," the rep said.
