Celebrities like musician Justin Bieber should display highest level of responsibility in everything they did as millions of teens and tweens worldwide emulated them, distinguished religious statesman Rajan Zed stated in Nevada (USA) today.
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, in a statement, said that Bieber should publicly apologize to his fans and the world for his reported actions in Florida on January 23 and take a vow of “wholeheartedly” undertaking the project of preventing kids from alcohol/drugs addiction.
World needed to produce better role models to take our children in the right direction, otherwise impact of role models like Bieber, 19, would be devastating to impressionable teens of the world who would be our leaders of tomorrow, Rajan Zed pointed out.
Zed further said that it was the time to talk to our teens and tweens explaining that driving under the influence of alcohol and marijuana should not be “part of growing up”, for which Bieber was reportedly charged with on January 23. We needed to create personal strengths in our teens and tweens so that they were not impacted by bad role models like Bieber who seemed to have lost his way.
As millions of young fans breathe and live Bieber and were devoted faithfully to his every action and word, he should try to set a positive example for them and become a real hope for worldwide teens. Bieber should immediately stop being a negative influence on our youth, Rajan Zed added.
