Justin Bieber has been asked to clean up graffiti left on a Gold Coast hotel wall in Australia.
Justin Bieber, 19, spray-painted cartoon faces on an external wall of a Gold Coast hotel earlier this week. The singer is currently touring Australia.
The hotel said it was pleased to have Justin Bieber’s artwork on their wall. However, Gold Coast City Council said it would order the graffiti’s removal.
Earlier this month, Justin Bieber was charged with defacing a building in Brazil.
The hotel, QT Gold Coast, said in a response to a comment on its Facebook page: “We are stoked to have Justin Bieber’s artwork on our wall.”
It added that it had given Justin Bieber permission to paint on the wall.
However, Gold Coast City Council said that while the graffiti was on a private property, it was in public view and an eyesore.
Earlier, Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tait described Justin Bieber’s behaviour as “really silly”.
“Just come and clean it up and we’ll be happy with you. Alternatively come and sing at our mayoral Christmas carols on 7 December for an hour and I’ll let you go.”
