Justin BieberPop-Ed: This past Friday night, Justin Bieber was kicked out of a laser tag center in British Columbia for allegedly punching a 12-year-old kid in the face.

No need to panic, y'all. The Biebs didn't resort to violence! Several eyewitness accounts confirm that no punches were actually thrown, and Justin only accidentally brushed the 12-year-old with his arm as he ran away from him and his posse. Rumor has it that the pre-teen perpetrator, along with a group of his friends, cornered Justin, shot him repeatedly (with lasers only, thank God!) and berated him with homophobic slurs.

It looks like the father of Justin's assailant plans to press charges. We're guessing he's not going to have much of a case, but even so, Justin Bieber doesn't want to let the incident go unnoticed. And against the advice of the team surrounding him, who'd prefer to sweep this laser tag scuffle under the rug, Justin feels it's important to speak out about what happened.

Sources say that within the next week, Justin plans to take a stand against bullying and homophobia. His laser tag confrontation apparently opened his eyes to just how hurtful verbal assaults can really be.

It's fantastic that most of Hollywood has jumped on the anti-bullying bandwagon, but they seem to have finally found their perfect spokesperson in Justin Bieber. Not only is Justin an actual teenager and peer to those the campaign is specifically intended to reach, he's also respected by this targeted age group.
