In the mid-'90s, Prince William's adorable face was plastered on posters worldwide and then hung above millions of innocent young girls' beds where they were kissed and admired by tweens who dreamt of one day becoming his real-life princess.
But then William started to show sings of male pattern baldness while younger brother Harry became the "It" prince and Will became the butt of Justin Bieber's bad jokes.
"I mean there are things to prevent [hair loss] nowadays, like Propecia," douchebag Bieber recently said during a recent interview with the U.K.'s Rollercoaster magazine.

"I don't know why [Prince William] doesn't just get those things, those products," Bieber continued. "You just take Propecia and your hair grows back. Have you not got it over here?"
According to the Huffington Post, several Britons have expressed their displeasure with Bieber's comments, and at least one British journalist is speaking out against the 18-year-old pop star.
"Wills and Prince Harry may joke about William's thinning hair, Jessica Callan tells Huffington Post, "but that doesn't mean a kid like Justin can come sauntering in and join in the joke. It's like inviting someone over for dinner and they tell you how awful your carpet is. Even if you agree, how dare they say it? So the Biebs had better watch out!"
