“We sympathize with your feelings. Justin Bieber is a controversial foreign idol, and his inappropriate manner has caused public discontent," the Chinese authorities revealed.

In November 2016, The Washington Post reported that Justin was stopped from screaming in the hall. To regulate the market order of show business in China and purify the market environment, it was decided that certain performers would be banned from performing in the country.
