Justin Bieber has incurred the wrath of fans in Argentina after appearing to disrespect the country’s citizens by using his feet to sweep two flags off the stage during a weekend concert.

The pop superstar was performing in Buenos Aires on Saturday when members of the audience tossed two Argentinian flags onto the platform in a bid to catch the singer’s attention.

However, instead of picking up the gifts to show his appreciation to the patriotic devotees, Bieber used his shoes and then a microphone stand to push the flags onto the ground – and the footage has now appeared on, angering a number of his supporters, who have made their feelings known by posting furious comments online.

One fan wrote, “I hope he never comes back to my country after this. So disrespectful”, while another adds, “How disgusting. He’s an ignorant brat and shouldn’t do that in front of his loyal fans.”

Bieber enraged other attendees at another show in the city on Sunday, when he had to cut the gig short due to ill health brought on by a bout of food poisoning.

The “Baby” hitmaker’s South American tour, which wrapped in Chile on Tuesday night, went from bad to worse after a string of headline-grabbing incidents, which included a vandalism charge in Brazil and an alleged romp with a Brazilian model/actress.

He was also booted out of his Buenos Aires hotel hours before his concert on Saturday after fans camped out on the streets were accused of disturbing the peace.

Despite the troubles, Bieber appeared upbeat on Tuesday as he thanked his followers for showing him love, writing, “South America thank you so much for an amazing #BelieveTour – u always have the most incredible energy. STADIUMS! thank u (sic). TE AMO (I love you)!!”
