In October 2016, mere days after the Birmingham mishap, Bieber stormed offstage during a concert in Manchester, England, when his Beliebers wouldn't stop screaming during his set when he was trying to speak in between songs.
"I appreciate all the support, I appreciate love, I appreciate the kind things, but the screaming in these breaks has got to stop," he fumed. "Please and thank you. I don't think it's necessary when I'm trying to say something and you guys are screaming." When they didn't oblige, he dropped the mic and walked off, but eventually returned, telling the crowd, "So the reason why I got upset is because I traveled across the whole world to come here and I dedicated my life to this. I dedicated my life to performing, I dedicate my life to bringing smiles to people's faces, and I feel like people just aren't giving me the same respect back, and courtesy. That's all."
He later explained himself further. In a since-deleted tweet (via People), Bieber wrote, "People tend to want to shut you down. What I mean by that is … people try to twist things, some people don't want to listen. But I simply feel like, if I didn't use this platform to say how I truly feel, and if I didn't use this platform to be the man that I know I am, and speak from what's in my heart, then I'm doing myself injustice, and I'm not doing anybody in this audience any justice."
He added, "There's going to be times where I say the wrong thing, because I'm human. But I don't pretend to be perfect and I hope to God that, you know, I don't say the right thing all the time because if that was the case then I'd be a robot, and I'm just, I'm not a robot. There's times when I get upset … times when I get angry, there's times when I'm going to be frustrated. But I'm always going to be myself on this stage."
