NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) - Maybe it was the haircut.
Maybe it was because the arena was filled with die-hard sports fans, and not his usual audience of tweens.
Whatever it was, pop star Justin Bieber was loudly booed at Wednesday night's Knicks game at Madison Square Garden.
A video making the rounds on YouTube shows the footage from the game, and the commentators can be heard joking about the loud Bronx cheer. The crowd erupted as when the singer was shown wearing pink glasses on the overhead scoreboard.
While some may be very surprised by the reaction, we can't say we were - he made our list of stars we love to hate.
Perhaps the crowd was venting over the Knicks disappointing performance - they ultimately fell to the Mavericks 113-97.
Separately, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is making his own headlines in New York, with his overture to the Mets.
What do you think? Is Bieber worth booing or were Knicks fans being rude? Sound off in the comments section.
