And now, a Philippine congresswoman, You Against Corruption and Poverty (YACAP) party-list Rep. Carol Jayne Lopez, is urging her fellow lawmakers to officially ban Justin Bieber in the Philippines as well as the Filipinos not to patronize his songs and albums, according to a report by ABS-CBN News this afternoon.

I'm not siding with Bieber, but don't you think it's too much already?

I understand if Rep. Carol Lopez will defend Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao against Justin Bieber, 'coz they're really close friends.

But there's no need I guess to pass a law banning Bieber.

At a press conference this morning, Manny Pacquiao was asked to react about the alleged insult made by Justin Bieber and here's what he said (as reported by GMA News):

Sabi nga sa kautusan ng Panginoon, pray for those who persecute you. So we will pray for them. Patawarin natin sila." [As what the law of God says, pray for those who persecute you. So we will pray for them. Let's forgive them.]

What do you think? Should Justin Bieber be banned in the Philippines because of the alleged insult and disrespect that he did to Manny Pacquiao?
