As a result of the attack, Justin Bieber fans are now taking to social media to beg the Canadian singer and Ariana Grande's manager, Scooter Braun, to cancel the 23-year-old's up-coming British tour dates.

Yesterday, fans of the 'Sorry' singer took to Braun's Instagram account to beg the manager not to allow Bieber to perform at an open air concert at London's Hyde Park in July.

'Cancel Justin's concert in the UK, please! We want him to be safe, please,' one fan asked Braun.

'Scooter please cancel Justin's concert for the sake of fandom fassa it for us Beliebers we want to see Justin well we do not want anything to happen to him,' begged another.

Meanwhile, other followers of the manager are asking the musician's fans to not be deterred to attend concerts and feel fearful in the face of hate and brutality.

An Instagram user with the handle guardianrauhl commented on Scooter's post about the attack to say: 'You people need to understand the whole world is in danger. Not just the UK. These monsters could attack anywhere.

'Stop telling [Braun] to cancel the show. We should not have to live in fear because of these monsters, that's what they want we cannot let them win. I get that you're scared for everybody's safety, believe me, so am I. But we should still go to concerts, festivals etc. We should still live everyday like it's our last.

'If he cancels his shows in the UK, should he cancel the rest of his shows? Because they're all at risk, not just the UK. Just be mindful that this can happen anywhere and sadly it does,' they added.

While safety is, of course, our main priority during this time of uncertainty and tragedy, we should try to be brave in the face of brutality to show that only love and hope can drive out hate.
