Justin Bieber Shows Us Exactly What Not To Do When Visiting Tulum
The takeaway: Don't climb the ruins and try to take off your pants.
Looks like Justin Bieber is putting in an early bid for "Worst Tourist of 2016." On a recent trip to Tulum, he brought along an entire crew (including new beau Hailey Baldwin) to check out the ancient walled city. Because we all would like to know what a Justin Bieber Squad looks like while entering a 13th-century Mayan city, here's a video of the group making quite an entrance:
According to New York Magazine, Bieber and his entourage were toting beer bottles and slinging profanities at the site's security guard—the group was looking for a party in the wrong place. The visit took a turn for the worse when Bieber starting climbing the ruins and reportedly attemping to drop his pants for a particularly racy shot. Luckily, the only image that made it to the singer's Instagram is a much more suitable-for-work photo of Bieber straight-chilling in a stairwell.
According to local press, the group was asked to leave after disobeying all of the important rules that come along with visiting an ancient Mayan site (don't climb the 13th-century ruins, keep your clothes on, be respectful). File this under "Exactly How Not to Act at a Sacred Landmark."
