Lady Gaga is asking her Little Monsters to show some compassion for the Beliebers following Justin Bieber's recent arrest.
The 27-year-old pop star posted a message to her fan site in support of the 19-year-old singer, writing: "Hey monsters. I know everyone today is talking about Justin's arrest and all sorts of words and judgments are happening on the Internet. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and to stand up for themselves, but I think we should be supportive of Beliebers. ...They deserve, just like any other fan, to feel strong for each other and Justin so they can continue to share the bond they have through music."
The Born This Way singer added, "We may not understand everything celebrities do because there's only so much we see, but Justin and Beliebers were 'born this way' too. Let's spread love and compassion to Beliebers today. That is what we are all about. Can you trend #MonstersSupportBeliebers?"
Meanwhile, Bieber's manager Scooter Braun tweeted:
Been a long day. Bottom line is we are defined by how we handle adversity. Be there when it counts. Love fully in good times and bad.— Scooter Braun (@scooterbraun) January 24, 2014
Bieber was arrested early Thursday morning, Jan. 23, after allegedly drag racing a rented Lamborghini under the influence in Miami Beach, Fla. The Baby singer has since been released from custody.
