Classy kid! Justin Bieber didn't get into a bar fight or pee in a bucket backstage this time. Instead, the 19-year-old international superstar reportedly called a young woman a "beached whale" as she chatted with friends at Perth's Hyatt Regency in Australia on Sunday, Dec. 8.

"One girl who was gorgeous looking, with long dark hair and would have been about a size 14," Helen Robinett, an image consultant on business at the time, told the site. "Justin looked over at her and said 'What are you, Hawaiian or something?' She said, 'No, I'm not.' Then he said, 'You look like a beached whale'… The girl said, 'Are you serious' and he said, 'You should go on The Biggest Loser.'"
Robinett continued: "The whole pool deck heard him call this beautiful young girl a beached whale. Everyone heard. And there was silence. It was almost like his security were used to it." Robinett was so displeased with the act that she also made a formal complaint to the hotel.
A second guest staying at Perth's Hyatt Regency also allegedly saw Bieber making a cruel gesture with his hands shortly before the incident. "[He imitated] a large belly as he spoke to the long haired girl, and I heard him say something about The Biggest Loser and he was pointing at her," the guest told the site. "I saw the girl and her friends leave, downcast. Bieber seemed to think he was funny, he was smiling and looking to his burly minders for their approval."
