The 19-year-old singer had been refuting claims that he was due an imminent meltdown following his disastrous trip to the UK which culminated in him attacking a photographer.
During the angry post, Justin hit out at people who were comparing him to the troubled 26-year-old actress who is due in court next week and facing huge tax bills.
He wrote: "And to those comparing me to Lindsey (sic) Lohan look at her 2012 tax statements."
Ten minutes after writing the comment, Justin deleted it- now admitting to TMZ.com that he shouldn’t have involved Lindsay.
He told the site:"My post was only up for a few minutes but I realised right away that what I said at the end was wrong and distracted from what I was trying to say.
"I immediately deleted it and rewrote it so it would show what I was really feeling and those words are up now."
Unfortunately for Justin, Lindsay is less than impressed with his actions and is said to be ‘appalled’ by the comments, with a source telling TMZ that she thought them as ‘senseless and mean’.
She has a point.
Justin concluded his re-posted rant yesterday promising to grow and learn from his mistakes, writing: "All this isn't easy. I get angry sometimes. I'm human. I'm gonna make mistakes. In gonna grow and get better from them. But all the love from you guys overcomes the negativity. I love u. Thanks (sic)"
We’ll just have to wait and see if the Justin is able to practice what he preaches.
