3-Year-Old Throws Epic Tantrum Because Everyone Knows Justin Bieber Sucks

biebercryingA video of a 3-year-old throwing a tantrum because her mom got her the wrong concert ticket is going viral. If you have a problem with a grown adult calling a child an asshole – I suggest you stop reading this post right now.


From E News:

Mom Stacey Murray, tells E! News that both girls are huge Directioners and both have 1D backpacks for school. Alexis loves Harry Styles and Savannah (the crier) loves Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan.

But “Savannah definitely likes Louis more and has a T-shirt with just Louis on it,” Stacey says.

The girls have yet to see One Direction in concert.

As for the Bieber’s concert, Stacey tells us that they did end up going and it was apparently “a major disappointment.” Bieber didn’t take the stage until 10 p.m., way past the girls’ bedtime, so they had to leave before the concert ended.

This little kid is an asshole. So is her mom. I feel comfortable saying this because my toddler can also be a huge asshole as can most toddlers – and I’ve been known to be an asshole on occasion. I don’t expect a 3-year-old to understand that there are kids the world over that aren’t even eating let alone going to concerts – but this is just too much. This is sort of where it becomes our responsibility – as parents – to not reward our children for acting like total jerks.

Get it together. Also – everyone knows Justin Bieber sucks. Duh.

    I really can’t say if you are being sarcastic or serious here. If you were kidding – well, I must be really tired and slow today.
    If serious – holy crap! That is an epic tantrum? You must have not reached the really tough toddler years if you consider that epic. That poor kid was just crying over not getting what she wanted (and was probably really tired too..who knows). Once in a while I would like to cry for a few minutes because I didn’t get to do something I really really really wanted to. Should I stop feeling sad for myself because there worse things that could happen?

    • Véronique Houde

      It’s true… I was expecting her to be throwing herself on the ground bacon-style… But she’s three years old, obsessed with a boy band, and her mom got her tickets for another show. It’s a reaction any three year old might have. The mom posting this on youtube though seems completely ridiculous. There’s nothing funny about this, or outrageous even except for the idea of bringing a three year old to a concert.

  • Snarktopus

    Wait..no, wait….this woman…bought her three year old concert tickets? For Justin Bieber? Who the hell buys a THREE YEAR OLD concert tickets for a pop singer? I mean, I could see if it was like Sesame Street Live or something, but…no, really, what?

    • Teleute

      My four-year-old is currently obsessed with Twisted Sister, but I’m not about to take him to a live show. Now, I’m not too familiar with Justin Bieber (and I’ve never even heard of the other band), but I highly doubt either of these concerts would be kid-friendly. Fans behave like animals. People get hurt. Kids could get separated from their parents — or worse. Best stick with The Wiggles and Raffi. (Or Hevisaurus, if you’re in Finland.)

    • gothicgaelicgirl

      Your son sounds AWESOME!!!!
      My girls are desperate to see the Cure and Billy Joel. (I’m not an 80′s kid, my mother raised me on a steady diet of throwback music, so I’m passing it on to my stepdaughters)
      I took my 13 year old stepson to an Eminem concert and the amount of negative comments I got off people there was unreal, people said I was a bad parent, it was unsuitable etc, yet I saw kids as young as 7 or 8 there.
      Plus it was his first concert, I was going anyay and had managed to get a spare ticket cheap so I figured (my favourite saying) f**kit, it’ll create some cool memories for him!

  • keelhaulrose

    Concert tickets for a three year old?
    I didn’t even consider taking my three year old to any show that started after two, because I knew night shows were going to be a giant waste.
    But, seriously? No three year old needs to go to a damn concert.
    And NOBODY needs to go see Justin Beiber.

    • Rachel Sea

      I went to dozens of concerts when I was an infant, and toddler, but it was stuff my parents wanted to see, so when I got tired, it was no big deal for me to curl up in a blanket and go to sleep.

    • chickadee

      Yes, this is what I had trouble with….3-year-olds go to “Sesame Street Live!” and Trout Fishing in America concerts.

    • Teleute

      Uh, ever hear of The Wiggles?

    • keelhaulrose

      There’s a difference between a Wiggles (or a Sesame Street or Disney Jr, etc) concert, which are either in the afternoons or start at the time on the ticket, and a Justin Beiber concert. Pop concerts “start” usually at 7 or 7:30, then there’s between one and three opening acts, and the main performer rarely starts before nine (ten isn’t at all unheard of, despite this mom’s complaint), and they usually do a ninety minute set, occasionally returning for an encore that adds another fifteen minutes. When I buy a ticket for the Wiggles at 7, they’re the ones on stage at 7, and the show, if it goes ninety minutes, is over after ninety minutes, before the main performer of a pop concert is on stage. So there is a huge difference between a Wiggles concert and a Justin Beiber concert.

    • Teleute

      I agree; I was just a little thrown when you said, “No three year old needs to go to a damn concert.”

      Also, The Wiggle’s fan base is 18 months to 5 years. Not entirely sure about the Bieber fan base, but I’m guessing it would be much, much older. My primary concern would be safety.

    This is the worst

  • candyvines

    Yuck. So your kid is having a bad day – don’t put it on the internet. Your kid is always like this – you’re awful, and don’t put it on the internet.

  • LiteBrite

    Outside the idea that Justin Bieber sucks (he does), what I want to know is why once again a parent is filming this tantrum then posting it online. Clearly the kid is upset. Whether she’s an asshole or not is up for argument, but she’s upset and that’s the mom’s reaction: film it and post it?

    • simpleton

      pretty clear that the asshole doesn’t fall far from the asshole tree

      Edit: after watching the whole video I feel pretty confident that it is the mom who is the main asshole here. Who just keeps filming their kids crying (or takes toddlers to a nighttime pop concert)?

    • Tinyfaeri

      I would imagine she started filming to catch their reaction to being given concert tickets…OK, so that’s a little off-putting, too.

    • LiteBrite

      I don’t think the actual filming to catch their reaction is that bad. I don’t even think it was that bad to keep filming it, as long as she tucked the video away somewhere and brought it out later to show the kid. (“Mom, One Direction is lame. I never liked them.” “Oh yes you did. Let me show you this….”) But I don’t understand the motivation to post it online. I think that’s what bugs me the most.

      And meteor_echo can I use “This woman is not just an asshole tree, she’s a goddamn asshole orchard” someday? Please?

    • gothicgaelicgirl

      lol I did this to my 10 yr old girl, she declared when she was 8 that she was going to marry Zach or Cody from the kids programme The Suite Life (either, she wasn’t fussy)
      I caught it on camera lol so now whenever the show comes on and she gives out saying it’s stupid I give her side-eye and say O really? Want me to dig out my camcorder?
      Brilliant, she gets a good laugh out of it too!

    • meteor_echo

      Some parents lack empathy to the point where they want to get some popularity by making laughing stock out of their kids, and they see nothing wrong with it. This woman is not just an asshole tree, she’s a goddamn asshole orchard.

  • Shelly Lloyd

    I don’t blame the poor kid, I’d cry too if I thought I had to go to a Justin Bieber concert.

    • JP

      Said the airhead that tried to be funny and instead comes across childish and immature.

    • candyvines

      Nope, just funny.

    • Shelly Lloyd

      Looks like JP is a Bieber fan. ;)

    When I was 3 my mom took me to see Sharon, Lois & Bram.

    • Teleute

      Mine did too, and I still haven’t forgiven her.

    • gothicgaelicgirl

      My cousin tricked me into going to a Britney Spears concert….it haunts my dreams…
      I got revenge- Took her to see Angelspit =P

  • thisshortenough

    Tbf it’s not like she’s 8 and on the ground kicking and screaming. She didn’t ask for the Justin Bieber tickets, she wanted One Direction ones and if she loves them so much it’s no wonder she cried. She’s only three she can’t explain why she’s sad properly yet. Hell her sister gets it better than the mom does. And also they really don’t need to be going to a concert at that age. These same parents would probably be pissed if their kid got shoved around or lost in the crowd

  • MommaJen

    Quite frankly I think it is child abuse to take your child of any age to a Justin Bieber concert. Cry away little one….the Biebs can’t hurt you anymore.

  • Lindsey Sweet

    The way the mother was talking about which One Direction members they each liked, ect., reminded me of the parents on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory bragging about the special thing their kids could do: how long they chewed a certain piece of gum, and how much T.V. they watched……reallly lame stuff, lol!

    • FormerlyKnownAsWendy

      What three year old has a favorite One Direction member?! Favorite Bubble Guppy, Tank Engine, Disney character, etc., sure. And knowing a song or two is fine. But having a three year old know so much about the damn band they can have a favorite? What the hell?

    • SarahJane86

      I dunno. My kid, who is 3.5, loves Hi-5 (a much more age appropriate choice) and knows all the new AND old members and has a favourite. We own a couple of DVDs, mainly used for long car trips, and she watches the show on Nick Jnr a couple of times a week.

      It’s not a stretch to think a child exposed to the music and merchandise, as well as an older sister who talks about it would know the band members names and have a favourite.

    • ElleJai

      The old members were good (the original Australian ones). New Australian ones are rubbish and banned in my house. Sam the yellow Wiggle is also banned…

    • Teleute

      It took me a long time to warm up to Sam, but I wasn’t the least upset to see him leave. (I mean, we got Greg back for a world tour!) And I initially had the same reaction to the New Wiggles, but seeing them live was enough to sway me in their favor. Emma was surprisingly exceptional.

    • ElleJai

      I have accepted the new Wiggles after watching my son dance to them on TV (and unlike Sam, these can sing). But I will never surrender to the new Hi-5! :D

    • Teleute

      Had to Google Hi-5. Never ever heard of em.

    • gothicgaelicgirl

      Em, the 8 year old in our house, her favourite is Niall from One Direction.
      Her dad and I joke if she has to have a crush on one, at least it’s the Irish one haha, keepin it local!

  • Rachel Sea

    …and what’s with the three year old to eating in a puddle? Shouldn’t someone be wiping that up?

    Mom is a fool for thinking it was a remotely good idea. “Whee, lets go see an artist you don’t like, whose opening act won’t even be onstage until your bedtime!” How fun.

    • Maddi

      It’s not a puddle, it’s a placemat.

  • Kay_Sue

    I didn’t realize so much wrong could be fit into 2:12. Wow.

  • CrazyLogic

    When I threw temper tantrums, apparently I just cried…and lost all my bones for a moment and flopped to the ground like Raggedy Ann.

  • Véronique Houde

    A three year old is a little young for a concert, isn’t she? Just the noise volume is bad for her little ears….

    • http://www.whatwouldshethink.com/ Rachelle

      Me it’s not so much the noise (you can buy noise cancelling headphones) but… who the hell takes a 3 year old to a nighttime concert? I’m looking forward to bringing Zoe to Osheaga for an afternoon since she loves music so much, but we’d be leaving at dinnertime.

    • Teleute

      I don’t think the time of day should matter so much as the band and the venue. The Wiggles at an upscale, indoor theater? — sure! Ozzfest? Probably not. (Best wait ’til kindergarten.)

  • candlesoffate .

    so do i suck for filming my 2 year old throwing his shorts in the air then putting them on his head and then shorts getting stuck and he freaks out?? you can hear me laughing hysterically in the back ground.

    • candlesoffate .

      i also put in on facebook for my sister to see since she lives out of town.

    • gothicgaelicgirl

      Because moments of comedy genius are hard to “plan”
      Your little lad will thank you for it when he’s older and can appreciate how funny it was himself.

  • Adam Fitzgerald

    My daughter is all most two and asked why she was sad, I told her cuz she didn’t want to see Justin bieber, sh he said ew and walked away. Awkward

  • Grace

    Justin Bieber tickets for a three year old? I didn’t go to a concert until I was 17. Not that I never wanted to before that, but because my parents said if I wanted to pay a crazy amount of money to listen to music I already had on my iPod, I had to do it myself. But I’ve seen videos of Justin Bieber concerts and I wouldn’t even let a 10-13 year old watch that trash live, let alone a 3 year old. Especially with how crazy some of the fans get!
