Justin Bieber shocked tourists during a visit to the Great Wall of China after he ordered his bodyguards to carry him along the historical monument.

The “Baby” hitmaker headed to the site, one of the wonders of the world, on Monday while in the country on a promotional campaign.

However, the lengthy walk along the structure obviously proved too much for the star, who was snapped being carried on the shoulders of two burly security guards.

The image was shared on Twitter.com, where users criticized the singer’s diva behavior.

One wrote, “I still can’t get over the fact that Justin made his bodyguards carry him to the top o (sic) the great wall of China. He is lazy like me haha.”

Another added, “Justin, dude, u actually asked people to carry you? Someone’s going a little diva I see.”

The star’s latest antics come a day after his bodyguards were spotted running behind him as he used a skateboard in Beijing.
