Justin Bieber Discredits Sexual Assault Allegations
“Sexual abuse is something I don’t take lightly.”
After a Twitter user under the name Danielle accused Justin Bieber of sexually assaulting her in 2014, Justin posted a series of receipts refuting the claims.
Danielle alleged that while attending an event in Texas on March 9, 2014, the singer invited her and her friends back to his Four Seasons hotel room. She stated that after rejecting Justin’s advances and telling him she was chaste, he forcefully penetrated her. In response, Justin shared a series of posts on Twitter, including receipts, emails, and links to articles with evidence that cleared his name. He wrote, “Rumors are rumors but sexual abuse is something I don’t take lightly,” later adding that he “confirmed with the Four Seasons regional manager that I was never on the property on the 9th of March 2014 and never a guest on the 9th or 10th and I welcome all press to inquire with them if needed or wanted.”
Rumors are rumors but sexual abuse is something I don’t take lightly. I wanted to speak out right away but out of respect to so many victims who deal with these issues daily I wanted to make sure I gathered the facts before I made any statement.— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) June 22, 2020
Justin ended his tweets with the statement that every claim of sexual abuse should be taken seriously, and that he will be working with Twitter and authorities to take legal action.
Every claim of sexual abuse should be taken very seriously and this is why my response was needed. However this story is factually impossible and that is why I will be working with twitter and authorities to take legal action.— Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) June 22, 2020
