Justin Bieber has ticked off Argentina.

Great. Now they're going to declare war on Canada and we're going to be right in the middle.

Argentines are upset over Bieber's treatment of their country's flag during a show Saturday in Buenos Aires.

According to the Associated Press, videos show how Bieber reacted when fans tossed two Argentine flags onto the stage. Just for reference, most musicians on giant world tours making them more money than the U.S. Treasury can print in a year usually hold up the flags in appreciation of their fans giving them all that money.

Not the Beebs. The AP report said Bieber treated the flags like dirty rags, using his shoes and a microphone stand to sweep them off the stage.

Nice. It must be fun to be Bieber's publicity person, who hasn't yet commented publicly on the incident.

Bieber's manager Scooter Braun tweeted that Bieber plans to come back Argentina. Good luck with that. Apparently, insulting Argentina's flag is a crime punishable by up to four years in prison.
