Scoop: Justin Bieber picks on plus-sized sunbather

Jeoffrey Maitem/Getty ImagesJustin Bieber went from lending a hand in the Philippines to making fun of a girl's weight.

Was Justin Bieber incredibly mean to a large girl in a bikini at a hotel pool in Perth, Australia? The alleged exchange is so awful, it’s hard to believe it is true, but the Daily Mail says a source who witnessed it made a formal complaint to the hotel.

“Justin said, ‘What are you, Hawaiian or something?’” the source claims. “She said, ‘No, I’m not.’ Then he said, ‘You look like a beached whale.’ The girl said, ‘Are you serious?’ and he said, ‘You should go on ‘The Biggest Loser.’”

Another witness corroborated some of the exchange, and Bieber later tweeted, “You are all beautiful,” an action some gossip reporters think was his mea culpa. What a gentleman.
