Justin Bieber is the newest western entertainer to be banned from performing in China.! The Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture, in a reply to a Chinese Belieber, said that they are not allowing the Canadian artist to hold shows in the country because of his behavior.

Bieber criticized for immature behavior

Although they commended the "Love Yourself" singer for his talent, the bureau also acknowledged the fact the Bieber has had several controversies in the past. "Justin Bieber is a gifted singer, but he is also a controversial young foreign singer," the office wrote as cited by E! News. "In order to maintain order in the Chinese market and purify the Chinese performance environment, it is not suitable to bring in badly behaved entertainers."

The statement continued, "We hope that as Justin Bieber matures, he can continue to improve his own words and actions, and truly become a singer beloved by the public."

The agency refused to specify any incident which compelled them to ban the Canadian singer from performing for his Chinese supporters.

Bieber, however, has a history of offenses which particularly caught the attention of the Chinese government.

Western entertainers banned from China

In 2013, the "What Do You Mean" artist had his bodyguards carry him on their shoulders while climbing the Great Wall of China. Bieber garnered a surge of criticism after he was caught using his underlings to carry him up China's historical site.

He was specifically slammed for being "immature" and "shameless" for doing such act on foreign soil. The following year, the pop singer was mired in another controversy after he uploaded a photo of himself standing in front of the Yasukuni Shrine, which was deemed offensive by China.

Bieber immediately took down the controversial photo after drawing a backlash from both his fans and detractors who took offense at the post.

He also released an apology and admitted that he was unaware of the story behind the Japanese shrine.

"I was misled to think the shrines were only a place of prayer. To anyone I have offended I am extremely sorry. I love you China and I love you Japan," he wrote.

The Canadian singer is not the only entertainer to be banned from performing in China.

Bieber has joined the lineup of Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Jay Z, Selena Gomez, and Katy Perry who were deemed undesirable aliens in the country.

Gaga and Gomez were reportedly banned from China after meeting with the Dalai Lama, while Cyrus offended the Chinese government when she and her friends seemingly mocked Asian people in a photo she personally shared online in 2009.
