Fans of Justin Bieber have taken to the streets of Buenos Aires, Argentina in support of the under-fire singer
Justin Bieber fans have taken to the streets of Buenos Aires, Argentina to protest the ban that currently hangs over the pop star.
The 'Sorry' hitmaker has recently shunned the opportunity to tour the South American country because he is currently embroiled in a judicial case after allegedly sending bodyguards to attack a photographer outside a Buenos Aires nightclub back in 2013.
The Canadian pop star recently said he would like to play in Argentina on his 'Purpose' tour, but he would not do so "until the legal conditions change".
In response to the local authorities, hundreds of Justin's fans took to the streets of the capital city to make their feelings known, carrying a variety of different signs that said things such as 'Argentina Needs Justin' and 'Right To Music'.
Last week, Justin apologised to his fans in Argentina via Twitter, explaining that the authorities blocked him from performing there.
He tweeted: "Argentinian beliebers I would like nothing more than to bring the #purposetour there but the Argentinian government won't allow it. So sorry. If things were to change I would love to come but at this time I cannot. For everyone else in South America I look forward to seeing you (sic)."
His remarks came shortly after it was claimed Justin is on a "spiritual mission".
A report said that the controversial singer has had "an epiphany", which led him to believe that he needs to reconnect with religion and nature.
As a result, during days off from his 'Purpose' world tour, Justin has been spotted meditating in parks and enjoying some solo strolls without any shoes or socks on his feet.
A source previously said: "He believes nature and religion - not concert venues and nightclubs - should become his life priorities."
