Unless you're wearing a tuxedo, bowties are super lame. Not only do they make you look like an NBA player who's trying too hard, they also cause brawls with pop stars. Such was the case the other evening when Justin Bieber got into an altercation over a snatched neck accessory.
It all started when a dude at a club in the Hamptons handed a bottle-service girl his white H&M bowtie, The New York Post reports. Then, she decided to run over to the Biebs. Wayne Rennalls, owner of the bowtie, came over to try and get his neckwear back.
"The girl with the bow tie went over to Justin and Wayne followed because he wanted his tie back. Then Bieber’s people got in his face...he eventually got the tie back," a source told the paper.
Everyone thought the altercation was over, until the Biebs decided to show his tough-guy side and yelled, "Punk bitch," at the 22-year-old Rennalls outside the club. The scene soon escalated, and, according to the source, "Justin jumped out the sunroof of his car and slid down the car like he was in Die Hard...He dropped his shirt and threw his hat and wanted to throw hands. His people surrounded Wayne, who was getting punched from all angles.”
Renalls reportedly got the living shit kicked out of him by Bieber's posse, although Bieber's representatives claim he had nothing to with the incident. Rennalls filed an assault claim the next day, and police are investigating whether or not Bieber directed his crew to put Renalls in the hospital.
All over a $13 bow tie that, unlike Wu Tang, won't even protect ya neck. The price people pay for fast-fashion.
