Haha, when I read the title of this article I thought “Light him up!!!” “Give him hell, James!!” But… turns out the only people that hated on Biebs was the Metallica fans, and the Metallica fans only.
Why is Justin Bieber wearing a Metallica shirt? He probably hasn't even heard like 1 song. lmao pic.twitter.com/xEDjBMHqW2— allie™ (@fadedtoblackx) November 10, 2015

But what did Hetfield say about it? He told New York Post,
“I remember when that whole ‘Justin Bieber wearing a Metallica T-shirt’ went viral, I thought ‘So what?’ If he doesn’t know the history of the band or whatever, it’s fine. I wear lots of stuff and I have no idea of the history, I just like the logo.”
“People try to shock me sometimes and they’ll say, ‘My grandma headbangs to your music — and she’s 120!,’ or ‘I named my baby after you. I’m like, ‘OK, cool.’ I’m not surprised that anyone likes Metallica.From cradle to grave, we’ve got you covered!”
