The backlash and jokes related to Ronda Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm refuses to die down. The latest to join the bandwagon is popular and controversial singer Justin Bieber.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the pop star apologized to Ronda for his snub when he refused to take a picture with her sister Julia and swore that he did not remember it.
“Supposedly she asked for a picture with her sister or something and I guess I said no, but I don’t remember this happening, so Ronda, I’m sorry — don’t kick my ass,” Bieber said.
Rousey first revealed her beef with Bieber earlier this year, saying he refused to take a photo with her little sister Julia at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. She told Cosmopolitan that she and her younger sister are no longer fans of the singer. Catch her revelation here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87-gcN9vjPE
However, that was not the end of Bieber’s comments. Bieber being Beiber he could not help himself from rubbing a little more salt in her wounds.
Later in the interview on being asked if there was anything Bieber would like to improve upon he said boxing. That was not the end of the story for without being prompted he went on asking, “Did you see Ronda Rousey? She got knocked out cold! Oh my God, she got knocked out so bad. Yeah, no, she got pummeled.”
And there goes all the goodwill earned by Bieber.
Chances are Ronda will remember this incident too and isn’t going to buy his latest album.
