Tween Girls Breathe Sigh of Relief as Anti-Mosque Justin Bieber Boycott Ends

Phew! It turns out you can oppose the so-called Ground Zero mosque and can keep your Justin Bieber poster. After a boycott of several days, the singer is back in the good graces of Andy Sullivan, an activist who launched the anti-Bieber campaign based on pro-mosque comments the 16-year-old allegedly made in an interview with Tiger Beat, a magazine for teenage girls.

If Tiger Beat seems like an odd place for Bieber to make a political statement — then again, what wouldn’t? — you have more sense than Sullivan, who later discovered he’d been duped by CelebJihad.com, a self-described “satirical website” that reported on the supposed interview.
