China, we get it.

Justin Bieber has been banned from performing in China, and honestly, no one is really surprised. 

A statement released by the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture this week confirmed that the 23-year-old tattooed Canadian singer has been barred due to his history of "bad behavior" in their country and basically the rest of the world. 

The statement reads: "Justin Bieber is a gifted singer, but he is also a controversial young foreign singer. In order to maintain order in the Chinese market and purify the Chinese performance environment, it is not suitable to bring in badly behaved entertainers. We hope that as Justin Bieber matures, he can continue to improve his own words and actions, and truly become a singer beloved by the public.”

Damn Justin. What did you do??

A lot, it turns out. While he has a laundry list of embarrassing headlines that would be great examples of immature and bad behavior, there might be one in particular that the Chinese government isn't quite ready to forgive, and we're pretty sure it's not the time he didn't mind that his penis was all across the interwebs, or that second time he exposed himself to the paparazzi

In 2014, Justin Bieber posted a photo of him at the Yasukuni Shrine in Tokyo, a controversial place that honors Japanese war dead, including war criminals from World War II. Something we're better Justin didn't know.

The singer apologized, but it wasn't enough. 

 

“I hope this singer can learn more about the history of Japanese militarism, and the wrongful historical and militaristic views promoted by the shrine after his visit,” said Qin Gang, a spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of China.

Yikes. In honor of that cringe-worthy moment, here are 11 more of our favorite embarrassing Justin Bieber stories. 

1. That time he egged his neighbor's house. 

People

Justin once thought his superstar fame would keep him from having to clean up his messes. The pop star caused $20,000 in damages to his neighbor's house when he egged it. 

In the end, he was placed on probation for two years, had to attend anger management classes, do community service, and had to pay over $80,000 in restitution. 

2. That time got a DUI and the entire country wanted to deport him.

CNN

After he was arrested for driving while under the influence, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest, a petition was started to kick him out of the country. 

The petition titled "Deport Justin Bieber" had over 200,000 signatures.

3. That time he puked on stage. 

He gave fans of a concert in Arizona a little more than they bargained for when he threw up twice on while performing. He later tweeted a quote from "Anchorman," "Milk was a bad choice." 

4. That time he peed in a mop bucket. 

TMZ posted a video of Justin peeing in a mop bucket in the kitchen on a nightclub. In the video, all his friends are giggling and complimenting him on his swagger. Obvi. 

 

5. That time he tried to outrun the paparazzi

Mirror

While being chased by the paparazzi, Justin reached out to 911 for help. But they quickly accused him of speeding, and so he said his last name was "Johnson." 

TMZ reported his peak speed was 100 mph. 

6. That time he had to be carried up The Great Wall of China. 

CNN

Probably another big reason China is keeping Bieber at an arm's length is because of the above photo. During one of his visits, he found The Great Wall of China a little too great and had his bodyguards carry him up to the top. 

Maybe if Justin can learn how to walk up steps by himself, the Chinese government will let him perform concerts in their country??
