Justin Bieber is widely known among fans for his numerous chart-topping songs. On the flip-side, some of his actions have also generated much controversy over the years.
This week, the Canadian singer caused quite a stir online following his appearance in a headscarf at his recent concert in Utah, USA. His choice of outfits during the live show has in turn shocked a lot of people, in particular the Muslim community in Arab countries.

According to a report by Middle East In 24, Bieber has been called out for allegedly “making fun of Islams and Muslims”. The media outlet reported that the singer has received widespread criticism soon after photos and videos of him performing on stage while donning the headpiece began making its rounds on social media yesterday (Monday, 8th November).
The portal also revealed that some people were stunned at the “strangeness of his appearance.” As seen in the the viral images on social media, Bieber wore an oversized T-shirt with a pair of white pants, and put the square scarf on his head. He also completed his overall “modest” look with a pair of black sunglasses.
While some Muslims appeared to be offended by Bieber’s clothing, Malaysian netizens, on the other hand, have taken to social media to leave amusing remarks to the viral post featuring the “Stay” hit-maker. One commentator even pointed out on how JB is bringing the “makcik bawang vibes” with the style of tudung he was sporting.
Several other Twitter netizens also went creative in coming up with new names for the Grammy winner such as “Justimah Biehah” and also “Justinah Biehah”. Not only that, some even jokingly commented that Bieber might be releasing his very own hijab line anytime soon!
