(Newser) – Just when you thought you couldn't get any more annoyed with Justin Bieber, this: A fellow guest at an Australian hotel Bieber stayed at claims the pop star was extremely rude to a woman at the hotel pool Sunday, news.com.au reports. The woman was wearing a bikini and was probably "about a size 14," says the witness, a businesswoman who actually gave her name and says she made a formal complaint to the hotel. "Justin looked over at her and said, 'What are you, Hawaiian or something?' She said 'No, I'm not'. Then he said, 'You look like a beached whale.' The girl said, 'Are you serious' and he said, 'You should go on The Biggest Loser.'"

Another witness says she "saw Bieber make a gesture with his hands to imitate a large belly as he spoke to the long-haired girl, and I heard him say something about The Biggest Loser and he was pointing at her." She adds that Justin "seemed to think he was funny." And then this morning, he went on Ryan Seacrest's radio show ... and called out the media for "calling me names," which he says is "no [different] than bullying that happens in school," the Huffington Post reports. He added, "People forget I'm a human being." No official word from Bieber on the "beached whale" allegations, but Perez Hilton notes that he tweeted "You are all beautiful" this morning, which could be seen as a "vague, possible apology."
