He even stood on the sacred chief logo that nobody, not even the players, stands on.

But now, a group of Blackhawks fans are getting revenge.

Chris Wilkerson, Mark Wegener and Josh Kaye were at the team’s annual fan convention on Saturday with a giant cutout of Bieber’s face. They stood on the cutout in multiple locations at the convention.

They documented their photos on a newly created Twitter feed, @StandOnBieber.

Here are some of their photos:

The Los Angeles Times contributed to this report.

Stepping on the sacred Blackhawks logo may not be the only trouble Justin Beiber caused while in Chicago this week.

TMZ is reporting the pop singer was kicked out of a club after police learned he was served alcohol.

Bieber is 19-years-old.

A spokesperson for Chicago Department of Consumer Affairs and Business Protection confirms a violation was issued to Bodi Nighclub on the Near North Side for “admitting and knowingly having underage persons in the establishment.”  They have no information about Bieber actually being ticketed.

TMZ says “officials questioned nightclub employees and determined Bieber was, in fact, served alcohol in the club.”

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.”

Bieber stands on sacred Blackhawks logo; fans express anger

Before Justin Bieber performed for his screaming fans at the United Center, he posed with the Stanley Cup in the Blackhawks locker room.

The native Canadian actively rooted against the Blackhawks in the playoffs; however, he pulled for the Los Angeles Kings during the Western Conference Finals.

Once a photo of Bieber with the Stanley Cup was tweeted out by the Blackhawks marketing department, fans expressed rage on why a bandwagon fan like Bieber was allowed to touch the Cup.

To make matters worse, a picture was released of Bieber standing on the sacred Blackhawks logo on the floor of the dressing room.

Nobody, not even the players, stands on the chief.
