Bestinau got that-
Justin Bieber took a heel during his concert in Montreal on Tuesday evening.
The pop singer, a well-known Toronto Maple Leafs fan who has even designed clothes for the NHL franchise, asked the audience in Montreal, ‘What about the Leafs, huh? How will that play-off spot be looking for you this year?”
The crowd cheered loudly.
The Maple Leafs are 42-19-5 this season, while the Canadiens are 18-38-11, holding the worst record not only in the Atlantic Division, but in the entire league.
When Bieber continued to troll the crowd by trying to start a “Go Leafs Go” chant, they responded with “Go Habs Go!”
Canadian hockey fans, even if their teams are in the basement, are a loyal group. The Canadiens, who lost in the Stanley Cup last season, and Maple Leafs are the only hated rivals.
Bieber’s taunts are something more traditionally seen in a pro wrestling arena, as a tried and true trope of bad guys telling the public their sports team is the pits. It hasn’t been that common in the music world, where artists tend to indulge themselves with the paying fans.
