I don’t know much about pop star Justin Bieber but I do know that he’s gotten himself into some trouble in the past.
A quick web search brought me to an article from the IB Times mentioning five countries in which Bieber has gotten into legal trouble- Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Germany and the US.
Now we can add Mexico to the list… kind of.
Luckily for Bieber (and his entourage) he was asked to leave the ruins in Tulum and wasn’t arrested.
The offense was “climbing onto or among the ruins” according to the AP.
At the site, climbing some of the pyramids are allowed but other places are roped off or have no entry signs which are “considered vulnerable or unstable“.
What Bieber did was wrong, possibly even dangerous to himself or the site but I can’t say that I’ve never been guilty of doing something similar in the past. I’m also not saying that it means it is OK to do…
There is no mention of the Tulum site being damaged due to Bieber’s curiosity.
I just wonder if this incident didn’t involve a famous individual, would the person have just received a warning rather than being asked to leave.
