Justin Bieber's Angry Instagram Rant is Justified, but Not the Attack on Lohan

For some reason contemporary Western culture has a problem with anger. No one is allowed to show their negative feelings verbally. No one is allowed to express that they feel dissatisfied by their life or by the behaviour of others. Of course, violence, hate speech and murder are all steps beyond anger and are a part of something that runs in a deeper and more insipid framework of thought, but anger and expressing it verbally is not only healthy, but necessary. 

Justin Bieber's recent 'rant' on Instagram has been portrayed in an enormously exaggerated way by the media and neither he nor it deserves quite such bad press. However, as he tried to remind us all in that post, he is human, he is entitled to his opinion and he is entitled to mistakes.

And he did make a mistake in the post - including Lindsay Lohan and criticising her was below the belt. But he retracted it and has apologised since. He told TMZ: "My post was only up for a few minutes but I realized right away that what I said at the end was wrong and distracted from what I was trying to say. I immediately deleted it and rewrote it so it would show what I was really feeling and those words are up now."

While some may deem it childish to use a social networking platform to complain about the world's treatment of you, he does repeat his age during the post: he's 19 years old. No longer a child and by no means a man, by having the humility to admit his faults and apologise for them he's one step closer to becoming one.
