(CBS) Teen sensation Justin Bieber certainly caught the ire of Blackhawks fans when a photo surfaced of the pop star stepping on the Indian head logo that adorns the floor of the team’s dressing room.
Bieber, in town for a concert at the United Center, was seen stepping directly on the Indian head while snapping a photo of the Stanley Cup – a major no-no for Blackhawks’ faithful.
In the wake of the outrage, Blackhawks senior director for communications and community relations Brandon Faber released the following statement:
“Bieber was very excited to see the Stanley Cup when he entered our locker room last night. As frequently happens with guests into our room, Justin inadvertently stepped on the team logo on the floor but moved off quickly once immediately reminded. He was apologetic and understanding of the tradition but continued to take photos with the Cup and some young fans. He was extremely genuine and kind with his time. We appreciate his enthusiasm towards hockey and wish him well with the remainder of his tour.”
