Singer threw his microphone on the floor and told the crowd: “Obviously Manchester can’t handle me.”
The Baby singer was seen throwing his microphone on the floor after telling fans to stop screaming when they booed him while he was talking.
Two weeks ago in London he told fans to “Be quiet and listen when I’m talking”, and just last week he was once again chastising fans, this time in Birmingham, for their “obnoxious” screaming. Last night, Bieber hit Manchester and once again took issue with the screaming but this time was met with a wall of booing from fans who weren’t having it. And how did he respond? By storming off stage.
He told the audience: “Obviously Manchester can’t handle me.
“So I’m going to quit talking for the rest of the night and just do the music.”
The 22-year-old later said the “no screaming thing” was “not me being an a**hole, it’s about me wanting to have a moment with you”.
He added: “I feel that people were just not giving me the same respect back and it hurts a bit.”
But some fans who took to Twitter were less than impressed.

While others leapt to Bieber’s defence saying they were “ashamed” to be from Manchester.
One fan added: “People need to learn to shut up!”
@justinbieber I'm ashamed to be from Manchester. I'm sorry for how you were treated here and hope it hasn't put you off coming back! ❤️
