Chicago Blackhawks forgive Justin Bieber for walking on team logo

 He has had more missteps than a novice rumba dancer of late but Justin Bieber's latest, stepping on the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks' logo in their dressing room, has been forgiven. The team sent out an official 'it's okay' press release.
"As frequently happens with guests into our room, Justin inadvertently stepped on the team logo on the floor but moved off quickly once immediately reminded," Brandon Faber, senior director in the Hawks media and community relations department wrote. "He was apologetic and understanding of the tradition but continued to take photos with the Cup and some young fans. He was extremely genuine and kind with his time. We appreciate his enthusiasm towards hockey and wish him well with the remainder of his tour."
Justin Bieber and Stanley Cup
Bieber had been invited to spend time with the Stanley Cup in the Hawks dressing room by the Blackhawks while in Chicago to play a July 9 concert on his 'Believe' tour at the United Center. The team provided him with his own jersey, a number 6 Blackhawks road jersey with his name on the back.
Besides getting criticism for stepping on the logo, it seems that many hockey fans were not happy the Biebs even got to touch the Stanley Cup. A Canadian from the province of Ontario, Bieber grew up playing hockey and said he was thrilled about getting up close and personal with the Cup.
His favorite team is not the Hawks, however, but the Toronto Maple Leafs.
