In what has to be one of the funniest and most entertaining things I've heard all week -- Justin Bieber got scolded by a mom on airplane who wasn't exactly pleased with his foul choice of language in flight. Apparently he was goofing around with some of his "entourage" on a 12-hour flight on Air New Zealand, and they started yelling out some pretty choice "four-letter words." (OMG. The Biebs has a potty mouth.)
Instead of simply tolerating his ridiculous behavior because he's one of the biggest pop stars in the world, this mom of two marched right up to him and told him: "Stop yelling curse words and using that kind of language on a plane. It's not appropriate."
Woo-hoo! Bravo, lady! Please tell me I'm not the only parent who 100 percent commends her for having the balls to tell off the Biebs! I can only hope I'd do the exact same thing if I was in her position, because as the mom of a 6-year-old boy who soaks up everything he hears like a sponge, I get absolutely irate when there are a bunch of rowdy teens around us swearing like sailors.
There have been so many times when I've been out to eat or out shopping with my son and heard a random 16-year-old drop an f-bomb without any ounce of regard for the little ears that are listening nearby. And I have to admit, I've hesitated to speak up in the past because I feel like it's really not my place to discipline other people's kids. I usually just get my son away from the teens in question as quickly as possible and pray to God that he doesn't repeat what they said at a later date.
But after hearing that this mom had the guts to call out Justin Bieber? There's no way I'm keeping my mouth shut anymore. There's a time and a place for everything, and spewing foul language in public is just totally unacceptable. (Watch out teenagers -- I'm listening.)
What would you have done in this mom's situation?
