Justin Bieber will not appear on the German TV show Wetten Dass…? as previously scheduled. Bieber was booked to perform but the teen music superstar decided to cancel out of respect for the man seriously injured on the popular show during a stunt gone wrong. Justin announced his decision on twitter:
“Just want to let my people in Germany know I won’t be on Wetten Dass tonight as an accident has taken place and …we all don’t think it is right to continue. Please pray for Samuel Koch & his family as we wait and hope for his health and safety.”
Bieber and the world were horrified to watch contestant Samuel Koch attempt to jump over a moving car. The young man landed face first on the stage floor and did not move, clearly unconscious. Koch is said to be out of critical condition but has a long road ahead to heal.
I think it was a good call on Justin’s part.
