The new H&M products were featured in a dedicated post by the Bieber stan account @jbiebertraacker, which brought Bieber’s attention to the merchandise.
Bieber claims that he did not approve the merchandise that just dropped worldwide in collaboration with him which includes t-shirts, hoodies, phone accessories, stickers and tote bag.
Justin posted on his Instagram story stating, “The H&M merch they made of me is trash and I didn’t approve of it. Don’t buy it” addressing his fans.
H&M has pulled the collection in response to the singer’s remarks, but the brand also noted that the right procedures were followed.
“As with all other licensed products and partnerships, H&M followed proper approval procedures,” said the fashion outlet adding, “But out of respect for the collaboration and Justin Bieber we have removed the garments from our stores and online.”
