The 19-year-old singer angered many of his teenage fans after blaming food poisoning for forcing him to quit the stage during his second concert at River Plate stadium in Buenos Aires on Sunday night. Some fans had paid up to US$320 dollars to see their teen idol perform. Facebook and Twitters users in Argentina have taken to the internet to criticise Bieber for pulling out of the gig and accused him of betraying his fans and only being interested in the money he makes from his tours and partying. Others have written and sprayed abusive messages towards Bieber on walls around the city.

Trouble has been following Bieber throughout his concert tour of South America. Bieber was reportedly kicked out of Faena Hotel in Puerto Madero, Buenos Aires, after his rowdy fans waiting outside had damaged private property and disturbed guests staying at the five-star hotel. In Brazil, the Canadian singer stormed off stage after a fan threw a plastic bottle at him and there have also been allegations of him visiting a brothel in Rio, hard partying and inviting girls back to his hotel.
