DUI Is A Serious Offense: Why Is Bieber’s Arrest Treated As a Joke?

bieberEarly Thursday morning, Justin Bieber was driving a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2 Spyder when he was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence, resisting arrest, and driving without a valid driver’s license. There have also been reports that he was street racing. Adding to the spectacle is a mug shot of Bieber, who is grinning from ear to ear. The photo is already being laughed at and talked about as one of the more memorable celebrity DUI mug shots in recent memory.

For Bieber, this has just been the latest in a long line of problems for Bieber, who seems to be enjoying every minute of the bad boy publicity. Earlier this month, Bieber was involved in an investigation surrounding accusations of vandalism (he allegedly caused 20,000 dollars’ worth of damage to his neighbor’s home with eggs). After the investigation, police reported that they found large amounts of drugs in Bieber’s home.

Bieber may be looking to “up his street cred”, but he is becoming more and more of a joke, especially amongst late night television shows:

 

Some are angry about Bieber’s portrayal in the media, saying that he is getting preferential treatment because he is white. Overnight, a very popular Richard Sherman-Justin Bieber photo has been passed around asking why Sherman is portrayed as a thug while Bieber is just a misguided kid? It’s definitely a good question to ask.

  1. It’s stupid. The kid has a lot of fans that put him on this pedestal and think that he can do no wrong– and it seems like he thinks that himself, too. It’s not funny that he gets the preferential treatment for an offense that “normal” people must suffer the consequences for, but the reactions are laughable – especially the tweet about the people in jail being able to meet him.
