Justin Bieber Reacts to Brittney Griner Being Sentenced To 9 Years In Prison

Are you a Belieber? Hopefully Brittney Griner is.

World famous pop singing sensation Justin Bieber wants to help out with the whole Brittney Griner situation. This afternoon  Brittney Griner was sentenced to 9 years in prison after allegedly being caught traveling with hashish oil at a Moscow airport.


American women’s basketball star Brittney Griner was convicted of deliberately smuggling drugs into Russia and sentenced to nine years of jail time Thursday in a case that has raised concerns she is being used as a political pawn in Russia’s war against Ukraine.

Judge Anna Sotnikova of the Khimki city court delivered the sentence and fined Griner 1 million rubles, or about $16,400. She said the court took into account Griner’s partial admission of guilt, remorse for the deed, state of health and charitable activities. Prosecutors had asked that she be sentenced to 9.5 years in jail.

Several celebrities came out to show support for Griner but  none more important than Justin Bieber.

“This hurts,” Bieber wrote in an Instagram story. “If anyone knows of anyway I can help please let me know.”

The big question is why did Biebs wait until she was sentenced.

He could have chipped in a long time ago and maybe it could have made a difference.  Most likely not, but you never know.

Better late than never.
