When someone throws their national flag at you onstage, it’s expected that you as a performer who cares of your fans will show some deference and respect. Every single time I’ve seen this happen, the performer picks up the flag, holds it for everyone to see, waves it once or twice and either hangs it over the drums/amps or carefully bundles it off to a roadie who takes it offstage. It’s only polite.
Not Justin Bieber, though.
At Saturday’s show in Buenos Aires, two Argentine flags were tossed onstage. Instead of being respective and appreciative, he used them as rags, sweeping them aside with his feet and then with a mic stand.
Just so you know, Biebs, insulting the Argentine flag carries a penalty of four years in jail.
