Justin Beiber is singing the same ol' tune. Is it too late now to say sorry? Because there was a misspelling on some of the merchandise from his "Purpose" tour. And not just a random word like "the" or "many," it's the name of the tour that got screwed up. "Purpose" is written out as "purose" in the sentence (and Bible verse), "But it is God's purose that prevails."
TMZ reports that the T-shirts are being recalled and Bieber is letting customers who bought the tee before the correction to exchange it for a new one. However, those T-shirts with the misspelling just became serious collector's items.
All in all, though, Bieber is standing by his merch. After news of the spelling error on his T-shirts broke, he tweeted out, "I love my merch." Which is probably easy for the Biebs to say considering he's on stage wearing brands like Calvin Klein, Fear of God, Adidas, and Raf Simons instead of T-shirts that would have failed English class.
