A few moments later, Bieber came back on stage and said, “Manc [Manchester] can’t handle the talking so I won’t talk.” Just before the end of his performance, Bieber explained the situation by saying, “The reason I was getting upset earlier was because I traveled across the whole world to come here and I dedicate my life to performing and bring smiles to people’s faces. I feel that people were just not giving me the same respect back and it hurts a little bit so that’s why. But we’re gonna end it on this last song … “Baby”.”
