Justin Bieber is throwing in the towel against Tom Cruise before any punches were even thrown.
The Biebs was out in L.A. on Wednesday when he was asked by photogs about his fight challenge to the “Mission Impossible” star.
“I was just playing,” Bieber admitted, explaining that he got bored on Sunday and has no clue why he chose to single Cruise out.
He then thought about it a little more and said, “I’m pretty sure Tom would whoop my ass,” much to the delight of the crowd of photographers.
The Drew House founder also thought he should probably go back and hit the gym before taking on Cruise, and that “He’s out of my weight class.”
As we reported, Bieber set the Internet on fire over the weekend when he initially extended the challenge.
“I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you dont take this fight your scared and you will never live it down,” Bieber wrote.
He also included UFC’s Dana White to possibly organize the bout.
Bieber later shared a fan-made clip from Cruise’s 1992 film, “Far and Away,” except the star was delivering a beating to a photoshopped version of JB.
“Damn Tom this didn’t go as planned,” the singer admitted.
Still, after trying to extend an olive branch to Cruise, Bieber quickly changed his tune and told the group of photogs that he’d “smash” the star.
Maybe he needs to consult with wife, Hailey Bieber, before jumping into the ring with Ethan Hunt.
For his part, Cruise has not commented on the challenge from Bieber.
I wanna challenge Tom Cruise to fight in the octagon. Tom if you dont take this fight your scared and you will never live it down. Who is willing to put on the fight? @danawhite ?
