Justin Bieber was attacked Thursday during a promotional event at Macy's in New York City, where a throng of Beliebers had camped out for an opportunity to meet the teen superstar.

A 47-year-old unidentified man jumped over a blockage, shouting, and knocked the teen singer to the floor. According to a witness, Bieber shouted What? What?

Security officers were quick to take the attacker off the teen, and he was whisked away by New York Police.
