Justin Bieber

TMZ is reporting that Justin Bieber was on the receiving end of gay slurs during a laser tag match in British Columbia on Friday night, and is now the subject of an assault investigation for allegedly striking the kid who called him a “faggot.”

“Sources say that Bieber became frustrated when the kid cornered him and wouldn’t stop shooting and when Bieber told him, ‘That’s enough’ … the kid responded, ‘What are you gonna do about it, faggot?’

“We’re told a shocked Bieber replied, ‘Excuse me?’ Sources say the other kid responded, ‘You’re a faggot’ and then put his hand out toward Bieber and Bieber pushed it away as he left.” –via TMZ.

The 16-year-old Canadian pop star from Stratford, Ontario, was at Planet Lazer in Richmond B.C. with his father when the altercation occurred.

Police said the alleged victim, a 12-year-old boy, suffered an injury that did not require medical attention at the time. The incident was reported by the alleged victim’s father approximately two hours later.

A Planet Lazer staffer told Vancouver-based celebrity blog ZackTaylor.ca that the “kid was surrounding Justin in the corner with his other little friends and shooting him during the game with their laser guns. Justin did what any other person would do during a laser tag game, and was just trying to get away from getting shot at and accidentally hit the kid while running away.”

The father of the 12-year-old boy later told ZackTaylor.ca, “The kid never made any homophobic slurs towards Justin. That report is totally false.”
