As part of his tour on Tuesday Justin Bieber got a chance to touches the Stanley Cup. The NHL’s Stanley Cup is among the most venerable and revered championship trophies in all of sports.
Prior to his concert at the United Center arena, home of the Chicago Blackhawks, the pop star was invited into the NHL champs’ locker room, where the cup is currently residing.
Blackhawks marketing director Peter Hassen tweeted out this photo of the Bieber. In that pic he is seen touching the trophy while making the No. 1 sign with his finger and a team jersey with the singer’s name on it which seen hanging in the background.
But some hockey fans aren’t too thrilled about it.
Some Tweets on the pic:
Just lost a lot of respect for Blackhawks. #Bruins wouldnt have let this happen RT @PJHASSEN The Biebs meets THE CUP.
“Who the hell let Bieber touch the Stanley Cup? #whyyy #contaminated,”
Meanwhile, Bieber has not responded to the negative comments, simply tweeting on Tuesday:
“Chicago always does it right! One of the best show of the tour. I couldn’t stop smiling! Thank you beliebers. I love you!”
