Anne Frank Museum Defends Bieber

This is what happens when you let Justin Bieber into your museum. “We think that what’s special is that a 19-year-old comes to the Anne Frank House and spends an hour visiting on a Friday night,” said the spokeswoman for the Anne Frank House, defending the pop star, who wrote in the museum’s guest book that it was “truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.” The museum posted the message on Facebook, eliciting a storm of criticism and mockery. “He could be doing other things in Amsterdam. He was very interested,” said the spokeswoman. “That’s more important than the commotion that we’re now seeing.”
