Remember how Justin Bieber left an insipid note in the guestbook of the Anne Frank Museum that pretty much broke the internet and pissed off a lot of people?

Turns out the museum staff didn't see what the big deal was about Biebs wishing that his name were scrawled in Anne Frank's diary.

As a reminder, here's what Justin wrote:

“Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a Belieber.”

The backlash was swift and furious, but museum spokeswoman Annemarie Bekker told WENN, “He’s a 19-year-old boy taking the effort to come and see the museum, and we’d like to point that out, and I think it’s quite innocent what he put down.”

Innocent, yes. Ignorant? Also yes.

Another museum mouthpiece, Maatje Mostart, explained, “He’s 19. It’s a crazy life he’s living, he didn't mean bad … and also it’s nice that he made the effort, he didn't have to come.”

And the museum's official Twitter account wrote:

 
Fair enough, but dude, still. Maybe next time, Justin should just sign his name.
