Justin Bieber defends rooting for Penguins in Stanley Cup Final


Justin Bieber has often been mocked for seemingly switching his sporting alliegances, but he hit back at criticism of his support for the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Stanley Cup Final.

The Canadian pop singer received criticism for recently donning a Penguins jersey, having previously been pictured wearing the colours of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

But ahead of game four of the Stanley Cup Final series between the Penguins and the Nashville Predators on Monday, Bieber staunchly defended his approach to sporting fandom.

He posted on Twitter: "I support all sports I'll put ANY jersey from ANY pro team if I'm whack for wearing jerseys they give me out of love then I'm whack.

"Leafs above all but other than that u give me ANY JERSEY THAT LOOKS COOL I'LL THROW IT ON.

"I also don't know enough about sports to really have valid opinion but I do enjoy sports!! And enjoy any high level sports game. Any team."

The series between the Penguins and Predators is level at 2-2.
