Bieber Says Sorry After Being Declared Persona Non Grata. Wants to Come to the Philippines ‘Oh So Badly’.

LOS ANGELES, California — After hearing the news that the Philippine’s House of Representatives has declared him ‘persona non grata‘ for mocking People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao on his Instagram account, the Canadian pop sensation has issued a public apology via an impromptu press conference here in his Hollywood condominium.

House Resolution No. 2962 was filed in the Congress to declare Canadian singer Justin Bieber “persona non grata” in the Philippines for allegedly mocking People’s Champ Manny Pacquiao in his Instagram account. Bieber will be declared “persona non grata” if he won’t issue a public apology.

Justin Bieber's 'Never Say Never' Press Conference

“To all the Filipino people around the world who were insulted or offended by the photos I uploaded on my Instagram account a few weeks ago, I am sorry,” said the teary eyed Bieber. “It was not my intention to insult Mr. Pacquiao, let alone a country full of obsessed, narrow minded boxing fanatics.”

He went on to say, “I thought it was ok to upload such pics, known as meme, because of the freedom of expression that we are exercising in this country.”

Bieber said that upon hearing the news of being declared ‘persona non grata’, he decided to issue a public apology right away, because he wanted to come to the Philippines “oh so badly”.

“Philippines is on the top of my list of countries I would love to visit,” he said. “It is on the top spot, number 1 actually. Even surpassing Hawaii, Costa Rica, Bahamas and even Antartica.”

pacquaio-mjWhen asked what it is that attracted him the most to the Philippines, the Canadian superstar described the country as being hospitable.

“During my concert there last May of 2011, my managers told me that the Philippines is known for their hospitality, and taught me how to say ‘I love you’ in their native tongue and to answer ‘adobo’ when asked what my favorite Filipino cuisine is.”

“What I didn’t know was that this hospitality they have shown was conditional, and subject to revocation. So again, I am sorry.”

 Bieber ended the press conference saying, “To the Philippines, please allow me to come back because a singer as popular as me, has so much to lose by not being able to visit your country. Please?”

In other news, Mexico’s Chamber of Deputies has also issued a similar resolution, declaring all Filipinos ‘persona non grata’ for mocking Mexican boxers who were defeated by Manny Pacquiao in the past.

      • If u will let people insult u in many ways they’ll get used to it but if u show them how u should be treated then there’ll be no more pikon-talo in the end..if u wanted others to make fun of u in everything u do.. then take it all by yourself..

    • eh kung ung ibang pilipino nga ang daming kung anu-anong masasamang picture na ini-edit sakanya e. tapos kung mkagalit sila. Mali ang karwiran nila! tss.

  1. LOL. So yan, persona-non-grata din lahat ng pinoy sa Mexico, dahil din sa mga meme’s na pinag gagawa ng ibang tao sa mga boxingerong napabagsak ni Pacman. Sino ba talaga nauna sa pag yayabang? Di tayo din, kayo din.

    Bat kc pati yang meme’s na yan ni Bieber eh, pinatulan pa… napaka liit na bagay, para namang mga bata na pikunin.

    oh ayan ang sagot nyo, sarcastic na apology. LOL

    • This should have never happen if people are open-minded. LOL. Freedom of speech dudes? Never heard of it? Then SEARCH! Tch!😄 Justin Bieber deserves to go back here in the Philippines. Lots of Filipino Beliebers are so down right now, not even having a chance to see their idol here in our own homeland. *My opinions, okay? So deal with it*

  2. ahaha parang yung yan ? pero yung iba Pinoy kung makapangutya sagad din sa buto . pikon ang ibang mga pinoy . lalo na mga die hard fans ng boxing . di ba nahiya ang HoR sa ginawa nilang kalokohan i mean mas madaming issue na kelangan ayusin yan pa inaasikaso nila

    dam it was just a dam meme . I know hes famous but dude come on . that just plain stupid for them to make a big fuss about this . We have freedom of expression dude .

  3. Why would the Filipinos make such a huge fuss about something as small and harmless as a meme? Even the HoR is involved? For once, Bieber is right, this is ” a country full of obsessed, narrow-minded boxing fanatics ”

    Although I don’t like Bieber’s music. Our country still lost a possible tourist. Happy now? Not just Bieber but after this news has spread throughout the world, how do you think this would affect the reputation of this country?

    • @ fontanilla… So you think bieber is right for saying our country is full of obsessed narrow minded boxing fanatic? Well he is pertaining to you my dear, ( you have said our country ). Before you respect the tourist, foreigner who will visit our land, learn first how to respect your country The Philippines and yourself as a Filipino.

  4. Hahahaha! Pasikat lang ang congress! Walang magawa sa buhay yan! Pero, parang di rin labag sa loob niya yung paghingi niya ng sorry ay! TOP LIST? #1? Maybe the last, you say!?

  5. Balak ko sanang gumawa ng meme na kasama din si JB na nagli-Lean para ‘fair and square’, kaso wala akong mahanap na ‘perfect planking picture of JB’, kaya hindi ko na itinuloy.

    Anyways, another humorous article! Made me laugh.

    P.S.: Don’t get any ideas…

  6. IT SOUNDS VERY SARCASTIC! : HE EVEN TOLD US THAT OUR HOSPITALITY IS CONDITIONAL. UNACCEPTABLE APOLOGY … IF I WERE THE PRESIDENT I WON’T EVEN LET HIM ENTER THE COUNTRY AGAIN. THE ISSUE IS NOT ABOUT THE FILIPINO’S WHO DOESN’T ACCEPT THE FACT THAT PACQUIAO WAS LOST. IT’S ABOUT BIEBER, ALTHOUGH HE DIDN’T INTENTIONALLY WANT THAT THING TO HAPPEN , HE SHOULD FIRST THINK OF HOW PEOPLE WILL REACT ON WHAT WILL HE POST FOR HE IS AN ICON..

  7. The article itself is obviously, and literally, a joke. Come on, people. Don’t you recognize how unrealistic his “statements” sound? Obviously not coming from an influential pop idol. This surprisingly came up as the first of the list upon google searching “bieber persona non grata” and, though very amusing, obviously affects those who aren’t wise enough to recognize satire. I’m for banning the crap out of the insolent little prick, but don’t be misled. There are more reasons to back up ostracizing Bieber than assuming that this article isn’t satirical in the least. Tread lightly people, you’re in SWN for those who aren’t aware.

  8. Filipinos are very hard working people. We always do our best that is why we always excel. So insulting Manny Pacquiao who brought honor to our country and inspired many Filipinos is unacceptable.

    FYI, Filipinos are very caring people and our hospitability is unconditional. want a proof? it’s YOU..

  9. Dear readers, please read again what he said, as quoted:

    “…. let alone a country full of obsessed, narrow minded boxing fanatics.”

    Now, draw your conclusion how he sees Filipinos. To read carefully is ro “belieb”!!!!

  10. un-“biliebable” really.

    When you read his statements carefully, you’ll know why. More insult to injury — this time he insulted the Filipino boxing fans as OBSESSED, NARROW-MINDED FANATICS.

    • Or the jokes just went over your head. You find humor in the obvious too much. Sometimes it’s stealth humor that makes an article brilliant. It’s art, I tell you.

  11. this article is fake. the pic above in which apparently, he was teary eyed, was from his interview back in 2011 in canada. lol im a fan so i would know these things. but really, this article is fake

  12. He sounded so sarcastic. -.- I never thought he could be this immature. Hah. May he find never-ending happiness with his weeds.

  13. He shouldn’t go back to the Philippines. He just sounded like he’s making fun of us by calling us narrow minded? WTF is that shit? He’s such a dumb shit. I hope he fails in life.

  14. The problem is that I have known so many Filipinos always make fun of Kano, Bumbay, Insek, Arabo but why cant they take a joke? Why so insecure?

    I was in Saudi Arabia and all these Filipinos were making fun of me and chanting “Amerikanong mangangapi” and much worse things. So, why can you guys dish out but cant take it?

  15. So, What’s New is a SATIRICAL and FICTIONAL news website. Besides, he doesn’t need to apologize. Meme’s aren’t supposed to be taken seriously. Some of you act like he slapped Manny. Take a chill pill.

    • He needs to apologize. If he said “no offense to the Filipinos” to the pictures he posted we wouldn’t mind. But another question is, why did he do it in the first place. -.-

  16. Oh cmon guys. The congress just wants crap over here we got a lot of issues to solve and why would they focus on this stuff about Bieber. Bieber, is a talented guy admit it. And what he said about Philippines was true, because we all know that! We also did some offensive stuff about Bieber but did he got mad and stuff? No. If you don’t like him neither his music then let him go. There are Filipinos who love him. Don’t be so selfish about that. Open your minds. No one deserves that kind of hate you’regiving him. He already said sorry. That closed the deal. Let him go here, and if you don’t want him here. Don’t go out and see him, let other people who loves him meet him.

  17. Why wont we just accept his apology? Everybody needs to be forgiven like in the bible said. Kasi naman ipinapairal nyo lang maman ang HATE towards sa kanya na bading siya, hindi siya marunong kumanta. Magreply kayo kung bakit ayaw nyo sa kanya, maliban dun sa ginawa nya kay Pacquiao

    • I don’t hate JB but I dont like him either. But if this article’s true then there’s something wrong with you people who think that this is an apology. I see this as an insult. Just read it again and know how he sarcastically said that he would love to go back to the PH bec the country’s at the top of his list … seriously? He thinks filipinos are stupid and would believe this was true, well this proved that some of you are. DISSAPPOINTING.

  18. And it was just a joke. ISANG O DALAWANG BESES. Eh kayo kung halos lahat ng male singer BINABASTOS nyo na nga eh di pa nagsosorry buti pa nga si Justin nag sosorry😛

  19. i don’t think this article is even true, if it was, then it should have been aired publicly, and spread all through out other social medias, he DIDN’T say things like this, let alone his own management allow him to say THESE THINGS. i couldn’t really believe adults like you are easily mocked, more than teenagers these days…

  20. Why did he even have to apologize? Why is it that when Justin “mocks” someone it’s considered as offensive? And when Filipinos mock him it isn’t? Such a cruel world we’re all living in huh? Those were just a few memes of Manny Pacquiao, and he’s already declared a “persona non-grata” while people from the Philippines make seriously offensive Justin Bieber memes yet Canada never declared Filipinos unwelcomed guests in their country. Just for once open your minds, and stop hating. Think about it, or maybe some of you can’t, after all, you happen to be somewhat shallow minded.

  21. MGA PESTE KAYO. PWEDE BA? WAG NGA KAYONG FEELING. NAGSOSORRY NA NGA YUNG TAO EH. PA-VIP KAYO! EH ANDAMI NGANG EDITED PICTURES AT NAKAKATAWANG PICTURES NI PACMAN DYAN, BAT DI NIYO DIN SILA PAALISIN SA PILIPINAS? MGA PESTE KAYO. MANAHIMIK KAYO. BAWAL NA BA MAGEXPRESS NG OPINIONS AND WHATSOEVER SA MUNDONG ITO? EH PAKE NYO KUNG FAN NIYA SI MARQUEZ? NAKAKAHIYA KAYO. SINISIRA NIYO PANGALAN NG PILIPINAS EH! PESTE.

  22. Tama naman yung iba. Bakit ba galit na galit kayo, eh ang mga iba nga sa atin mas malala pa mang asar at mang lait nang iba. Porket ba hater kayo ni Justin Bieber lahat nalang gagawin niyo mapagmukha lang siyang masama? Hindi ba pwedeng kung ayaw mo talaga sakanya wag mo nalang siyang pansinin or pakelaman? Kayo din namang mga pinoy pinagtatawanan niyo yung mga edited pictures ni Pacquiao ah. Ang mas masama pa nga PINOY pa ang nag eedit ng mga pictures na yun. Pero bakit walang nagagalit? At tuwang tuwa pa nga kayo sa mga pictures na yun. Tapos pag famous singer na ang nag post galit na galit kayo lahat? Grabe lang. At hindi lang siya ang natatanging tao na nag post ng ganun. Saka bakit naman magfofocus ang government natin sa ganitong bagay samantalang may mga mas importanteng bagay pa silang dapat pagtuunan ng pansin.

    Seriously guys, learn to take a joke. And don’t act like you’re innocent. I’m sure halos lahat naman sa atin napagtripan or pinagtawanan na ang edited pictures ni Pacquiao or nang iba pang tao sikat man or hindi.

  23. This article is obviously just for entertainment, hindi po to totoo. It is SATIRICAL. Sinong bobong sikat na singer ang magsasabi ng ganoong mga salita (let alone a country full of obsessed, narrow minded boxing fanatics)? Sinong bobo ang gustong masira ang image nya? Namaaaaan. Utak namaaaan. Pero ang nakakairita lang, grabe kayo mkareact sa ginawa ni bieber pero kayo nga kung sabihan nyo na sya ng BAKLA at gawan din ng MEME parang hindi nyo sya iniinsulto ah.

  24. Grabe na talaga yung ibang mga pilipino!. sumosobra na ! nagpost lang ng unting pictures si justin wagas na kayo makapang lait !. kayo nga edit lang ng edit ng ibang pictures ni Paquiao . ehh ano kaya kung magalit kayo sa sarili niyo!. bahala kayo magsisi din kayo sa huli . at please tama na!

  25. Please !. Di niyo alam ang tunay niyang pagkatao!.😡 At ang tunay lang na may alam niyan ang mga pamilya niya at ang mga beliebers niya hindi kayo!. Hindi niyo ba naiintindihan itO? “Don’t Judge A Book By It’s Cover”

  26. Why the hate?? Many filipinos also use Justin’s photos in memes… many filipinos also use manny’s photos as well.. wag naman po tayong pa’inosente… nag’apologize na nga yung tao.. syempre tao prin sya! normal lng naman mka’insulto no?

  27. Dont comeback here from Philippines you have already disrespect 2 people, the father of the child at the airport and Manny Pacquiao,

  28. Come on guys! Let’s forgive him, he’s not a perfect person, he just did a mistake. He’s even a good guy, he even did an apology. JB, for me, you’re forgiven!

  29. Guys, hindi lang si Justin Bieber ay nagpopost nang pictures na ganyan. Maraming tao sa net ay nagpopost nang mga pictures ni Pacquiao na makakatawa pero medyo offensive.Lets be open-minded guys. :))

  30. no se puede burlse de pais que justin va a a trabajar nenito porque que te da brillar tu trabajo “carrera artistica” cerra la boca y aprende a no fata el respeto a tu fans y al pueblo de cada pais , muchas estrellas son responsables y trabajan sin falta el respeto a sus fans. aprende a callarte la boca y hablar bien como coresponde o te traida en ploblema

  31. I wish Beaver would just take the place of Mayweather tomorrow for the fight. I would love to see him get ko’d immediately orrr I could just photoshop it and post it on Instragram.😉
