When Justin Bieber was staying overnight at a hotel in Bogota, Colombia, he once again managed to stir up trouble. The singer snuck out of his hotel room and defamed a public wall with graffiti. This was especially rebellious and risky because the particular neighborhood Justin was in had banned graffiti. That didn’t stop Justin from spray painting a huge marijuana leaf and his native Canadian flag on a brick wall. His actions ignited so much backlash from other graffiti artists (and criminals, according to the Bogota government,) that officials were getting a huge headache from Justin Bieber. While they didn’t flat-out ban him from the city, they definitely wanted him to leave. The singer had unwittingly started a graffiti revolution, and instances of street graffiti increased dramatically after the Justin Bieber incident. Poor Biebs didn’t even know what he was doing, but he found himself caught in the center of a graffiti revival in Bogota.
