Blackhawks rep: Bieber stepping on sacred logo was an accident

Justin Bieber came under fire Wednesday after he was photo’d stepping on the sacred Blackhawks logo in the players’ dressing room while taking pictures of the Stanley Cup. Bieber did say he was sorry.

A Blackhawks representative said Bieber accidentally stepped on the logo, but was immediately asked to step off of it.

A statement was released from Chicago Blackhawks senior director for communications and community relations Brandon Faber, saying:

“Bieber was very excited to see the Stanley Cup when he entered our locker room last night. As frequently happens with guests into our room, Justin inadvertently stepped on the team logo on the floor but moved off quickly once immediately reminded. He was apologetic and understanding of the tradition but continued to take photos with the Cup and some young fans. He was extremely genuine and kind with his time. We appreciate his enthusiasm towards hockey and wish him well with the remainder of his tour.”
