Justin Bieber can’t seem to catch a break.
Surfacing in Miami this week after days of misplaced speculation over another alleged reckless driving incident, the 19-year-old is now getting online heat for his leather on leather — teamed with sunglasses, three gold chains and Miami tie-dye Heat hat — combo at last night’s Game 7 finals between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers.
A big basketball fan and a good player himself, Bieber sat courtside with rapper and friend Lil Twist, with an obligatory, huge security guy standing behind the singer.
Needless to say, Twitter had a field day mocking the 19-year-old’s outfit. Seeing as it was reminiscent of the leather garb he wore at the recent Billboard awards where he was booed, it may have been an unfortunate choice for a televised game.
Somewhat understandably, Bieber seemed unamused when a camera was stuck in his face once he was spotted at the game.
Meanwhile, over in Twitterverse, reaction to the singer’s look was polarizing.
Some, probably ‘Beliebers,’ (Twitter’s for everyone folks) said the Biebs killed it, but others were far less kind. A gif of the Canadian licking his lips and drinking water is currently making the rounds online.
A hearty selection of some of the tweets Bieber’s game 7 ensemble inspired can be seen here. Below are some of the rest.

Every guy needs at least one friend who is not on the payroll who can say, hey fella – don’t wear lip gloss to the Heat game. #Biebs

Currently enjoying a break from his Believe world tour, the first leg wrapped on May 12 at a mammoth Johannesburg show, the singer has been in Miami for a few days soaking up the beach life and possibly some of the wilder night scene.
On Sunday, Bieber took to Twitter to briefly update his fans about his time off.
