Justin Bieber found himself in some hot sauce this weekend after making some inappropriate comments at the Anne Frank House. The teen pop star paid a visit to the museum in Amsterdam on Friday and saw fit to write in the museum’s guestbook:

“Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber.”

Immediately, the Internet erupted into the usual mix of citizen outrage and comedic gold. The story is a Twitter trend and world news. This dose of perspective museum comes from Anne Frank House spokeswoman Maatje Mostart via an article with nearly 1000 comments on BBC News:

“He’s 19. It’s a crazy life he’s living, he didn’t mean bad… and also it’s nice that he made the effort, he didn’t have to come.”

Rather than rehash that whole mess any further, I thought it would be an optimal opportunity to introduce the unique food art of Malaysian artist-architect Red Hong Yi.
