Justin Bieber recently disappointed fans when he announced he would be cancelling his meet and greets because they left him feeling “drained”.

But some Beliebers were angered even more this weekend when they were presented with a cardboard cut-out of the star at an event they had paid more than £1000 to attend.

And while Justin enjoyed some time off camping out in the wilderness and posing in the nude, people mocked the star and his fans who had paid big money in the hope of meeting their idol.

One person wrote on Twitter: “$2000 to take a picture with a Justin Bieber cut out... Man I got to do that for free.”

Another wrote: “If you’re ever feeling sad just remember there’s a bunch of people who paid $2000 to meet a cardboard cut out of Justin Bieber.”

And someone else posted: “A cardboard cut out... How long you going to continue to take the p*ss @justinbieber?”

Justin announced he would not be continuing with his meet and greets on Instagram last week because they left him feeling exhausted.

He wrote: “I’m going to be cancelling my meet and greets. I enjoy meeting such incredible people but I end up feeling so drained and filled with so much of other people’s energy that I end up so drained and unhappy.

“Want to make people smile and happy but not at my expense and I always leave feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression.

“The pressure of meeting people’s expectations of what I’m supposed to be is so much for me to handle and a lot on my shoulders.

“Never want to disappoint but I feel I would rather give you guys the show and my albums as promised.

“Can’t tell you how sorry I am, and wish it wasn’t so hard on me. And I want to stay in the healthy mindset I’m in to give you the best show you have ever seen.”

Aww, didums!
