Don’t worry guys, Justin Bieber isn’t just periodically posting lazy memes in order to fulfill his promise to “speak up about racial injustice and systemic oppression,” he’s also doing his part to support the Black Lives Matter movement by throwing a party to celebrate the birth of his Black friend, rapper Justine Skye. Proof that Justin can walk the talk (let’s give him a pass on being able to spell the words), he and wife Hailey Baldwin bravely faced off against Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti’s ban on social gatherings and risked having their water turned off (not that Justin showers but Hailey might like a cup of tea) in order to host a bevy of Hollywood elites (OK, Calabasas krabs) at their Beverly Hills mansion. Justin even went so far as to hug Kylie Jenner upon arrival. Talk about bravery!
According to The Daily Mail:
Hailey and Justin Bieber threw a star-studded party at their $8.5 million Beverly Hills mansion on Sunday evening.
The hosts and guests let loose while appearing to ditch social distancing rules, despite repeated warnings from Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti regarding large social gatherings across the city.
The media personality was every inch the warm host as he greeted attendees with hugs and provided alcoholic beverages.
Gatherings of any sizes that contain people from different households are prohibited under Los Angeles County’s health order for COVID-19, with Garcetti previously vowing to cut off utilities in three LA homes for hosting house parties ‘in violation of public health orders’ as California continues reel from the impact of the virus.
More than 2,000 Los Angeles residents have so far lost their lives to the highly contagious virus, from 170,000 fatalities across the United States.
Burrrr. The shade of the DM calling Justin a “media personality” is giving me frostbite. In addition to the birthday girl, guests included Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Jaden Smith, and Winnie Harlow, so basically every Black person they know. Justin wore his jammies, Hailey wore denim coochie cutters. Winnie was the only guest to arrive wearing a mask. Here’s some blurry paparazzi shots from the party.

I mean, at least they’re outside? And I’m guessing some of these people have stockpiles of COVID-19 tests at their disposal and besides, can rich people even get it? I haven’t seen the proof. InTouch reports that Kylie only just returned from celebrating her 23rd birthday in Turks and Caicos in opposition to the CDC’s recommendations (which are the same for Jamaica where Madonna was recently partying).
Here’s Hailey assaulting the birthday girl who is currently promoting a “quarantine video” and encouraging her followers on Facebook to “wash your hands, wear a mask, click the link in my bio.”

That’s right, shake it off! You got this! (*whispered* get out) You’d think The Biebers would want to keep this unsanctioned party on the DL but Justin just couldn’t help himself and posted about it on Instagram.
Not pictured are Justin and Hailey’s Savannah cats Sushi and Tuna who we have not seen since Sandra Lee found Sushi in her backyard “starving, cold, scared, exhausted and stuck with porcupine quills” way back in March. The Bieber-Baldwins can give themselves and everyone they know COVID-19 if they insist, but we must demand #Justice4SushiAndTuna!
