Emma Portner, Justin Bieber’s choreographer, has accused him of “degrading women”. Emma shared a lengthy statement on her Instagram story calling Justin out for degrading women and attending an anti-LGBTQ church.
“I regret working under your name,” her statement began on her Instagram story. “I gave your universe my naive body, creativity, time, and effort. Twice. For content that you made millions off of. While I made zilch. Natta. Barely anything. Less than minimum wage for the hours I invested. I couldn’t afford to eat.”
Justin Bieber’s #PurposeWorldTour choreographer/dancer, who also happens to be Ellen Page’s wife, slams the singer for allegedly paying her ‘less than minimum wage’ while working for him:

“You have IMMENSE power. Use it to STOP DEGRADING WOMEN. We should all be ‘checking on you’ and Chris Brown because you both need to be held accountable,” she added.
Portner’s comments come after Bieber took to Instagram to defend his manager Scooter Braun, who Taylor Swift accused of being a bully.
