Justin Bieber hit a photographer with his truck last night, topping off his already strange week in the headlines, and it’s all caught on camera.
According to TMZ, the pop star was leaving his church in Beverly Hills when he accidentally struck the paparazzo. By the looks of the video footage below, he was driving slow in attempt to mind those around him, but still managed to run over the 57-year-old photographer.
In the heat of the moment, Bieber kept his cool and composure given the situation — he even stayed by the man’s side for about 8-10 minutes until paramedics and police arrived.
He did put the paparazzi in their place though: “Are you guys worried about me, or are you worried about this guy that’s on the ground?!” he expressed his frustration with the paps who continued shooting.
“Put your cameras down and start helping!” he exclaimed.
This comes after Bieber abruptly canceled all remaining stops on his Purpose World Tour, including two North American shows with Martin Garrix. Despite a report that the cancelation was due to his faith, Bieber assured fans he just needs to rest after two years on the road.
