He’s been called many names (and not all of them complimentary), but for controversial Canadian pop star Justin Bieber, the name he’s called almost as much as his own is far and away “Justin Beiber.”

It’s an honest mistake that’s befallen many, including no less than one of the world’s most reputable news sources, the New York Times.

Today (June 10), the Times mistakenly coined Justin Bieber as “Beiber” in a news report chronicling a recent Hillary Clinton book signing at a Barnes & Nobles store in New York’s Union Square.

The misnomer appeared in the story’s very last line, as the writer was relating the enormous crowd that showed up to get Mrs. Clinton’s signature on her new memoir, Hard Choices, to other book-signing celebs who’d appeared at the store.

“A Barnes & Noble spokeswoman said the crowd’s size was not particularly unusual,” read the copy. “Mr. Clinton, the actor James Franco and Suzanne Collins, the author of “The Hunger Games” trilogy, received similar welcomes. The Jonas Brothers and Justin Beiber got bigger crowds.”
