Justin Bieber has officially become a part of the Bored Ape Yacht Club after acquiring the NFT on Saturday. Despite getting his hands-on one of the most-talked-about tokens, fans are roasting the ‘Yummy’ singer for his decision. It is said that Bieber bought the NFT for 500 Ethereum, which is worth a whopping $1.3 million!
The original market price of the NFT was 104 ETH or $208,237. He is not the only celebrity who is a part of BAYC. Serena Williams, Travis Barker, Stephen Curry, and the rapper Gunna are some of the many other members. Bieber shared the excitement of his new acquisition on his Instagram.
“What if you had it all, but nobody to call, maybe then you’d know me. Cuz I’ve had everything but no one’s listening, and that’s just fuckin lonely. #lonelyboredape,” Justin Bieber captioned the post of the photo of the Bored Ape NFT. However, his fans had a different reaction to this, and it didn’t take the netizens long to roast the ‘Peaches’ singer.
“Justin Bieber spent 500 ETH ($1.3 MILLION) on this digital ape drawing…that everyone can save to your phone for $0. Truly don’t understand this NFT craze,” one user wrote. “Justin Bieber really paid 5x the Bored Ape floor price for an ape with no rare traits,” wrote another.

Justin Bieber spent 400 eth more for a floor ape that HE liked. That’s more bullish than anything else could be.
He’s not looking for the flip he just likes the apes!
