Someone Shot Paintballs at Justin Bieber’s Calvin Klein Ad on East Houston

The brief respite from Justin Bieber’s bod (which may or may not be Photoshopped) in NoHo came to an end earlier this week. Calvin Klein hoisted the second in the series of ad banners at its token spot above East Houston, this after days of indecision.

And the haters have apparently come out of the woodwork this time around. Sometime on Wednesday, an unknown assailant fired a volley of yellow paintballs onto the banner. Shortly after the incident, we received an ominous all-caps email from a spokesperson of the Anti Bieber League:

THE CITIZENS OF NYC SAY NO! TO VISUAL TERRORIZATION AT THE HANDS OF JUSTIN BIEBER AND CALVIN KLEIN.

WE DID NOT ASK FOR THIS – WE SAY NO! TO BIEBER – WE SAY NO! TO MEDIOCRITY.

NO LONGER WILL NYC TOLERATE THE STUPIDITY OF THIS ASININE BUFFOON/TURD.

NO BIEBER IN 2015!

Bieber is the spokesman du jour for Calvin Klein, an ad campaign that definitely mirrors the Marky Mark Wahlberg underwear spots from the early 1990s.
