"I'm so mad because WE BELIEBERS were the ones promoting and [streaming] that video. WE got the 30m views just for it to be taken down..... doesn't sit right with me especially since there was absolutely NOTHING wrong with the video. RESPECT JUSTIN BIEBER."
"We need to do justice for this [...] one thing is that you do not like an artist, but already wasting their work that is a lack of respect. RESPECT JUSTIN BIEBER."
"The fandoms sabotaged Justin against making a joint effort to denounce the video in bulk on YouTube for the simple facts of not being able to see his success, and they just forgot that he always wins in the end."
Tweeple are amused seeing why people are seeking 'Respect Justin Bieber'?
What is Bieber's new song 'Anyone'
Bieber's brand new single is accompanied by a Rocky-inspired music video, starring Zoey Dutch, directed by Colin Tilley. Bieber plays a Rocky-Esque boxer who is shown training, drinking raw eggs, drinking juice, and competing in the ring. The famously tattooed singer in the video catches attention with his shaggy hair. Beliebers have noted that his look in the song reminds Bieber at the beginning of his career.
The video also features Zoey Deutch as Bieber's love interest who supports him on his journey.
