Justin Bieber visited the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam at the weekend , together with his friends and guards, before a concert at Arnhem tonight.

Bieber and Anne Frank

He stayed more than an hour in the museum, then wrote in the guest book : "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber."

And THAT remark, posted by the Anne Frank Museum, drew a torrent of abuse on Twitter.

Even Prince Charles tweeted : Justin Bieber hopes Anne Frank would've been a Belieber. Didn't the poor girl suffer enough?

Pete Cashmore ‏@mashable tweeted : Justin Bieber Hopes Girl Killed by Nazis Would Have Liked His Music .

Other comments:

Kevin García León: She would've been a WHAT? That little idiot is way too full of himself. She's an important historical figure so show some respect.

Anastasia Finnigan-De Graeve: Glad he went,but, the last sentence is VERY self serving. he missed the lessons of Anne totally.

Selina D Moses Let's hope she would have never been a belieber

Meghan Mausteller: Way to turn an inspiring moment into something about yourself.

Robin Bolles Anikas: Unbelievable...agreed very self-serving and completely missed the lesson in front of him. Shows his complete LACK of Maturity

Marc Lauzon-Bragg: Unbeliebable.

Kayleigh Septer: "People hate on him because of his fame". No, people hate on him because he does stupid crap like this.

Sheryl Arsenault: What an immature and disgusting thing to write in her book! As an American I am truly sorry he went there and did this!

Angela Gigi Mohler: I thought it was nice of him to go and see the history of her until I read what he wrote. Have some respect Mr. Bieber for she will be famous long after your fame fizzles.

Rebecca Churchill: What a self indulgent little prick.

Barb Miller: I find it ironic that all of you are spewing hate. Isn't this why Anne Frank and countless others had to go into hiding? You are reacting on your own personal feelings and how does that make you any better than other hate mongers? 

Theresa Azores: NO. No, Anne wouldn't have been a Belieber. She wouldn't have had his picture on her wall because she had much better taste than that, thanks.

Heather Mirman: "Despite everything, i believe people are really good at heart" - Anne Frank" I think before everyone goes bashing Justin Bieber we should take a moment to think about these words and why Anne said them. 

Adrian Mccartney : What I got out of it was he didn't put himself above her, but hoped she would have liked him enough to listen to his music. If that's Narcissistic, maybe I'm missing that particular definition in my dictionary, but I don't think so.

Penny Holland: His comments were shallow and self-serving. He obviously has no clue what a solemn opportunity he had in visiting The House.

Camille Chatelain: How does he manage to think about his own fame and success attending a historical place of such tragedy and injustice...Like that... I can't believe I wasted any words on this guy, salut.

Ivana Venier: In Italy we use to say.... Someone speaks only because he has a tongue in his mouth....

Braden Glett: I suppose his next stop is Berlin where he will re-enact JFK's famous "Ich bin ein Belieber" speech!
