This kind of makes us cringe.
Justin Bieber stopped by the Anne Frank House on Friday (April 12), touring the Amsterdam hiding place of the young Holocaust victim and diarist. But it wasn't his appearance that got people talking -- it was his comments.
According to the Anne Frank House's Facebook page, the 19-year-old singer -- who is now on the European leg of his Believe tour and performed in the nearby Dutch city of Arnhem in the Netherlands on Saturday night -- left a message in the museum's guestbook, writing:
"Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."
The comment stirred up a lot of conversation on social media, with people calling Bieber "a little idiot" who is "way too full of himself."
One Facebook commenter wrote, "Glad he went, but, the last sentence is VERY self serving. He missed the lessons of Anne totally," while another added, "How does he manage to think about his own fame and success attending a historical place of such tragedy and injustice?"
Twitter exploded after the news, as well, with fans and non-followers alike sharing their opinions on Bieber's remarks.
Just when you thought Bieber couldn't do anything worse, he decided to write in the guest book at Anne Frank's house. m.holymoly.com/celebrity/news…

Bieber has yet to discuss his tour of the Anne Frank House ... or his inappropriate message.
