Justin Bieber criticized for Anne Frank comments

Justin Bieber is coming under fire after visiting the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam.

He toured the house Friday evening and wrote in the guestbook, "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a Belieber."

Critics jumped on that, saying Bieber is full of himself and insensitive to Frank's plight. However, Frank was into pop culture and wrote in her diary about her collection of film star photos.

A museum spokeswoman says she didn't see anything offensive about Bieber's remarks. Bieber's fans tweeted support, although many said they didn't know who Anne Frank is.
