Justin Bieber booed at Montreal concert after cheering Toronto Maple Leafs and dissing NHL Canadiens

Justin Bieber booed by fans at Montreal stop on Justice World Tour after he cheered on his Toronto Maple Leafs and dissed local NHL Canadiens

Justin Bieber found out the hard way that sometimes you just have to cheer for the home team even if you’re a die hard fan of another organization.

The 28-year-old singer took a moment to pause from his electric performance at the Bell Center in Montreal, Quebec on the first leg of his Canadian stop and chatted with the fans, but was met with a roaring crowd of boos after he brought up his own hockey team, the Toronto Maple Leafs.

‘How ’bout the Leafs, though, huh? How’s that playoff spot looking for you guys this year?’ he said to the wild disbelief of the mostly Canadians supporters, all of which was caught on video and shared by super fan @marie_sunsets on Twitter.

Bieber even gave a shoutout to his buddy on the Leafs who scored the first goal against the Candiens in the first 36 seconds of the game on Saturday: ‘Auston Matthews is really doing some work here in Montreal.’

He added: ‘How’s that playoff spot looking for you guys this year? Maybe next year, maybe next year.’

While Justin attempted to start a ‘Go Leafs Go’ chant, the crowd backed their team and responded with ‘Go Habs Go!’

The Maple Leafs are 42-19-5 this season, while the Canadiens have the worst record in the Atlantic Division and the league with 18-38-11.

The Canadians are the oldest in the National Hockey League and have won more Stanley Cups than any other team with 24 titles since being established in 1909.

By comparison, the Leafs are an NHL founding team established in 1917 and have won 13 titles. They initially were known as the Toronto Arenas before taking on the St. Patricks name in 1919, and finally reaching Leafs status in 1927.

The two teams have the longest running rivalry in the NHL, but the Canadians have a recent Stanley Cup win in their pocket with last year’s title. Toronto hasn’t earned the coveted award since 1967.
