It should be noted that dreadlocks were historically worn by members of the Black community, who have faced discrimination for the hairstyle.

Legit.ng understands that this is not the first time Bieber is being called out for sporting dreadlocks.

The star's fans in 2016 trolled the musician online for sporting dreadlocks at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

The troll hit him so hard that he was forced to shave his dreadlocks.

Bieber cut off his dreadlocks but never issued a public statement or apology to fans.

In other news about the singer, Legit.ng earlier reported that Bieber acquired a customised futuristic Rolls Royce Wraith worth N126 million.

It is important to note that the luxury automobile designers built a masterpiece 103EX Rolls Royce Wraith which is a slick and super extreme concept car that measured 19.4 feet long.

Information gathered by Legit.ng shows that the inspiration behind the 103EX Rolls Royce was the WCC's design.
