Continuing his never-ending tour of pissing people off for simply being Justin Bieber, the Pop star went back to his hometown of Stratford, Ontario last week, and while there, he was reportedly confronted by an old family friend who was not pleased with the way the Biebs was behaving.
According to a report from the Daily Mail, Bieber, who just celebrated his 20th birthday a little over a month ago, found himself involved in a heated confrontation last Monday (Mar 31) after Stratford resident Mike Malcho saw the singer and “30 goons” walking through a local Walmart store “like they owned the place with no regards (sic) to employees of others.”
Mike Malcho just so happens to be an old family friend, and he claims to have known Justin all his life … so he, of all people, wasn’t happy about JB acting as if he had no home training what-so-ever.
Malcho, 43, accused Bieber of shining flash lights in little girls’ eyes, opening food then discarding it, bouncing balls and throwing other items around the aisles.
The father-of-three was so incensed by 20-year-old Bieber’s behaviour he confronted him and his entourage and told them exactly what he thought of them.
Bieber and his crew were apparently driven up to the front door of the Walmart by a Toronto city bus, with a police escort, something Malcho believes was an attention seeking move from the singer.
The angry father has branded the Baby hit-maker, a ‘p***k’ and a ‘disappointment’, telling the young star to remember that he came from nothing. He also said Bieber should not be, ‘cruel’ to the very fans that made him a multi-millionaire pop star.
Malcho then took his outrage to Facebook, describing what happened and basically telling Bieber all the way off:
Justin shame on u…..ya know from get go I supported ur ass…Always saying he’s a kid…Money has got to him he will find his way back….on and on….U disgust me….Yes I am happy I told u exactly what I thought of u…u and ur 30 goons….I can not believe they allow u to behave that way and r right beside u doing it….
Waltz into Walmart last night and low and behold Mr Bieber not only being a little prick to young girls by shining flash lights in there face etc…but walking through the store like u own the place with no regards to employees or others attending the store for real purpose bouncing balls ….throwing things… opening food etc…..
U r not a little boy no more u r a young man with no regard to ur own community and the ppl in it…..let alone post a pic of u on the STRATFORD city bus and claim u were riding the bus in Toronto…That ashamed of ur home town???Shame on Walmart for allowing it to happen if I walked in with my 7 year old son and he acted the way u did we would be asked to leave or escorted out…And I say 7 year old loosely bc even he knows right from wrong and knows how to act in public…..
Ur parents must really be proud???WOW….I grew up with ur Dad and ur Mom and Uncle’s… Aunt’s… etc respect them and the rest of ur family to the fullest …knew u since u were knee high to a grass hopper….I get it fame goes to ppls heads but my god boy grow up…so many young girls and boys look up to u let alone ur home town….
I get it u don’t wanna be bothered all the time but to show such disrespect for ur Home town is totally uncalled for…..Walmart had next to no one there….and u take the city bus with a police escort but yet want no attention…and have the bus driver drop u off at Walmart doors bc u don’t want to get ur shoes dirty in the grass???
Mr Bieber goons or not unlike u I am proud of where I came from and Happy I spoke my mind to u….One statement ppl from Walmart agreed upon that I had said to u was….U started and came from nothing U may be rich now but if u don’t smarten up ur gonna end up back with nothing….
Ur fans yes those young kids u were cruel to r who put the food on the table for U ur Mother and ur Father…..Like u or not everyone in this town has shown u respect and we deserve the same…Do u think we want our lives being examined and under a microscope and the city most of us grew up in being bashed bc u don’t know how to act in public…
Ur behavior doesn’t just effect u it effects all that live here….We want someone to be proud of and most of us thought we could be proud of u….What a disappointment….
With that said Grow up son bc life is to short and ur a much better person then ur portraying to be…Alot of us know alot more then what’s published in the books and being posted and the movies being created…The only ppl u guys r fooling is r u….Give Stratford something to be proud of again…END of story.
On Friday (Apr 4), the day after the story broke in the press, Malcho posted an updated note on his Facebook page (FYI: he has since deleted the first), stating that he received no money for the story and wasn’t paid by any publication (including The Daily Mail) for his version of the events. He wrote:
This is how it is poor grammar and all…this is me no dollar signs making me say it no reputation to protect “JUST ME” This guy didn’t sell no story???… I’m still the same broke ass I was before this happened..That’s not my style nor do I work that way…. I don’t want no fame and glory …I stood up for what I believed to be right and in my eyes it doesn’t matter if it was the pope I still would have said what I said …For the ones taking the story and running with it GET IT RIGHT ALREADY..hahaha…..Just messing either way I know what I wrote…As to y it is left public…wink
For what it’s worth, not everyone who came across Bieber in the Walmart that day scoffed at his presence.
Jake Klassen — whose son posed with the Pop star — appeared to have had no issues with Justin’s “behavior,” and he seems to have found Bieber’s antics harmless:

I wish I would have made a video of #JustinBieber playing floor hockey at Stratford Walmart.

Meanwhile, E! News contacted the Walmart in question, and the company responded back saying that Justin was a “lovely guest, polite, signed autographs and even shopped” during his visit, which is a total contradiction to Mr. Mike Malcho’s account of events.
Whose story do you believe? Walmart’s or Mike Malcho’s?
