MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – As far as Filipinos are concerned, blood is thicker than water. Between Manny Pacquiao and Justin Bieber, they’d choose Pacquiao.

The 21-year-old teenage idol is undoubtedly one of the most followed celebrities on social media. As of latest count, Bieber has over 77 Million Facebook fans, more than 61 Million and close to 24 Million Twitter and Instagram followers, respectively.

But all that is changing. The numbers are rapidly going down, thanks to Filipino fans who are unfollowing Bieber by the millions. (The Philippines has a population of 100 Million.)

Since the announcement early this year that Pacquiao will face American Floyd Mayweather in what is being billed ‘The Fight of the Century’ at MGM Grand Las Vegas on May 2, Filipino Bieber fans have, in no uncertain terms, made known their support for their countryman while angrily criticizing Bieber for openly rooting for Mayweather.

Bieber has always been a Mayweather fan, standing beside the undefeated champion during his boxing matches and even hanging out with the boxer off the ring. Bieber is also reportedly singing Mayweather’s entrance music live during the May 2nd bout.

Well, the Filipinos aren’t happy and are bidding The Bieb ‘buh-bye!’

TORONTO, Canada (The Adobo Chronicles) – Justin Bieber has appealed to Pope Francis to intercede after an Argentine judge issued an arrest warrant for the Canadian singer for failing to respond to summons related to allegations he ordered bodyguards to attack a photographer in 2013.

Judge Alberto Julio Banos ordered the “immediate detention” of Bieber and bodyguards Hugo Alcides Hesny and Terrence Reche Smalls.

Bieber is accused of sending the bodyguards to attack photographer Diego Pesoa outside a Buenos Aires nightclub. Bieber never returned to Argentina to respond to questions about the incident.

Under Argentine law, Bieber would face from one month to six years in prison if convicted on a charge of causing injuries.

After being informed of the arrest order, Bieber immediately asked Pope Francis to convince the judge to cancel the warrant. The singer, who previously had been in trouble with the law many times in the U.S., made his appeal on social media, posting the following message on the Pope’s Facebook page:

“Your Excellency (sic) , please help and use your Argentinan (sic) influence to convince Judge Banos to cancel the warrant for my arrest. With my busy schedule of concerts and recordings, I don’t have the time to fly to Buenos Eres (sic) to appear before the judge. I promise to go to confession and receive Holy Community (sic)  when I come visit The Vatican this summer. I will even stage a free concert at St. Peter’s Square.”

As of presstime, the Pope has not replied to Bieber’s post.
