NEWS OF THE WEEK: Justin Bieber dismisses defamation lawsuit

Justin Bieber was booed at a Montreal concert after he made a comment about his favorite team, the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Bieber who has regularly shown his support and love of the Leafs decided to make a special shoutout during his concert to the team.

He began by saying, "How about those Leafs though, huh?"

The "Favorite Girl" singer then went on to praise his close friend for scoring a goal against the Canadiens, saying: "Auston Matthews is really doing some work here in Montreal."

He also went on to poke fun at the Montreal Canadiens and said, "How's that playoff spot looking for you guys this year?" He later added, "Maybe next year, maybe next year."

Fans, however, did not appreciate Bieber mocking their beloved team and loudly booed the singer while he was on stage. Chants of people yelling "F*ck you" can be heard hurled at Bieber.

"I LOVE JUSTIN BIEBER!? Trolling a sold out Montreal concert by talking about how much the Leafs rule and Habs suck is such a fucking chaotic move that I can only ever DREAM of accomplishing," wrote another person.
