Justin Bieber slams violent paparazzi

Justin Bieber has lashed out at members of the paparazzi trailing him in Chile after they allegedly attacked his car.

The Baby hitmaker is furious following an ugly encounter with local photographers on Friday (14Oct11), a day before his concert in Santiago.

In a series of angry posts on Twitter.com, Justin Bieber writes, "dear paps...i walk by you very calm and then some of u decide to kick and punch the car we are in....show respect you get respect in life... some paps are real cool and chill. i dont feel crazy talking to them. it is cool. acting like a maniac...yeah i love talking with u. really?"

Justin Bieber's tour across South America has been quite a drama-packed trek - he had to beg fans in Argentina not to break into his hotel room after crowds of devotees were filmed attempting to storm the building he was staying in earlier this week (begs10Oct11). Police were called to the scene in Buenos Aires to help keep the screaming teens under control.
