After threatening to make his Instagram private, Justin Bieber took things one step further and deleted his account completely. The singer got into it with ex Selena Gomez earlier this week, saying that she cheated on him with Zayn Malik while they were together.
In case you missed out on the social media drama, things started on Sunday night when Bieber threatened to make his Instagram private after fans continually berated his new fling Sofia Richie in the comments section. “I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate this is getting out of hand,” he posted. “If you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like.”
For reasons unknown, ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez decided to chime in. “If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol – it should be special between you two only,” she wrote. “Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you.” The comment was deleted shortly after it was posted, but not before Bieber had a chance to respond.
“It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love,” he reportedly clapped back in the comments. “I’m not one for anyone receiving hate. Hope u all can be kind to my friends and each other. And yes I love my beliebers.”
When Gomez responded with shade — “Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive, no wonder fans are mad. Sad. All love.” — Bieber hit fans with a bombshell. “I cheated…Oh and I forgot about you and Zayn?”
Ouch. The tense back-and-forth was deleted almost instantly, but come on people! This is the age of the screenshot — nothing goes unseen.
Last night Gomez reignited the conversation on Snapchat and took back everything she said. “What I said was selfish and pointless,” she posted.
Sadly it wasn’t enough to stop Bieber from deleting his account altogether, but the apology was necessary. Is there anything worse than an ex commenting on your life without them? It’s annoying and is guaranteed to start drama. So butt out.
As for Bieber’s Instagram page, fingers crossed his latest tantrum won’t last long.
