Rita Ora reckons Justin Bieber was quite right to punch a fan in the face last week. OK, that’s not actually what she said, I just paraphrased her words to make them more contentious. Journalists are the worst.

As previously reported, TMZ recently published a video of Bieber apparently punching a fan who reached into his car ahead of a show in Barcelona last week. The fan later said that the matter was “in the hands of lawyers”, and told a Spanish radio station that all he had been trying to do was “touch [Bieber’s] shoulder and face” so was a bit surprised when he ended up with a bloody lip.

However, says Ora: “I’m not speaking for anybody, but knowing [Bieber] and his incredible background, I know how it feels to be uncomfortable and scared. I feel like anyone who had a hand in their face is going to protect themselves”.

Face and shoulder, don’t forget. Face and shoulder. Basically, listen to Rita, don’t go around grabbing at celebrities and expect them to be pleased. Or anyone, for that matter. Whatever happened to manners, eh?
