Justin Bieber was in the Chicago Blackhawks locker room to see the Stanley Cup when he committed a serious cardinal sin in the hockey world.  Bieber stepped right on the Blackhawks logo in the middle of the locker room to take a photo of the Stanley Cup, which is a sign of disrespect and usually if you accidentally step on the logo, you have to pay a fine to the team..  No one steps on the logo in the middle of the locker room and according to TSN’s Aaron Ward, the logo was roped off when the media was in the locker room so no one would make the mistake.

The Blackhawks senior director for communications and community relations Brandon Faber released a statement about Bieber stepping on the logo:

“Bieber was very excited to see the Stanley Cup when he entered our locker room last night. As frequently happens with guests into our room, Justin inadvertantly stepped on the team logo on the floor but moved off quickly once immediately reminded. He was apologetic and understanding of the tradition but continued to take photos with the Cup and some young fans. He was extremely genuine and kind with his time. We appreciate his enthusiasm towards hockey and wish him well with the remainder of his tour.”

Glad to see that he was apologetic for doing it, it’s pretty easy to forget if you’re not involved in hockey.  I’m more surprised that four people stood in the background and let him step on it, than I was that Bieber actually stepped on it.
