Justin Bieber thinks that 'Indians'(Read: First Nations) get free gas in Canada.
Note to Justin Bieber: There is no free gas for aboriginals - The Globe and Mail

Do people really not have anything better to do than demand apologies from barely legal pop stars for unsurprisingly stupid comments?

I was told once by the mayor of a back woods town in Quebec that Aboriginal People could own as meny guns as they wanted without any legal interference.
Nice things I used to own.......

A lot of native groups are probably just glad for something to complain about. For every legitimate gripe they have (and believe me they have a lot of legitimate gripes) there are those that can't imagine a day going by that they aren't playing the victim card. I was behind a woman at the grocery store last night that was berating the cashier because he didn't know how to swipe her band card through their new system to save her the $.57 in tax. After about four minutes of waiting for a manger to show up to help the kid a man behind me threw a dollar at her and told her he'd pay the tax and she could keep the change. The woman said that was unacceptable she didn't want the government to get a single penny from her. Really? It is 10pm there is one cashier on and you want to hold us all up to make an empty political statement? Like any group natives have their fanatics while the rest just try to get through another day. I bet there are celebrities that are annoyed and embarrassed that Bieber is making celebrities look bad.

Meh. People are stupid. And some people are more stupid than others, regardless of their background.
Some people will jump at any chance they see to get things to go their way, get things for free, or just have their own live easier while giving not thought to the expense of others it requires.
I've listened to a lot of sad sob stories of people who are otherwise well off. The kind of people who will claim that they deserve something based on what their families have gone through in the past.
Know where part of my family is from? Ireland. Want a sob story? Try the Irish. (Other part of my family is Norman-English... but I generally leave that part out when making the point.)
I have yet to find someone to top the sob story of the Irishmen. Acadians come a close second, but they're French.
Moral of the story is: Lots of people in history have gotten a raw deal over the centuries, it doesn't make you special, it doesn't mean you deserve more than someone else. All it means is that you should damn well know better and treat your fellow human beings with a bit of respect.
