Fans leave hateful comments after Justin Bieber posted several pictures with his new girlfriend, Sofia Richie.
After posting several Instagram pictures—seven, to be exact—with his alleged new girlfriend, Sofia Richie, Justin Bieber received a slew of hateful comments, unhappy with his girl of choice. Since he’s all about positive vibes these days, the 22-year-old did not hold back while addressing hateful Beliebers and putting them in their place.
“I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate,” he captioned an Instagram post, after a series of pictures with Richie. “This is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like.”
The “mean” comments mostly consisted of snake emojis and immature accusations. That being said, Bieber’s famous ex, Selena Gomez, was not happy with his threatening response to his fans.
In a comment captured by The Shade Room, Gomez called out Bieber saying, “If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol – it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you.”
Several fans agreed with the 24-year-old singer and posted comments slamming Bieber for his post. “Selena is very intelligent,” one fan wrote. “Justin fans are like customers into a store and the store is you.”
Another said, “Let’s all unfollow him.”
Bieber later responded to Gomez’s comment, writing, “It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love.”
Though this Instagram feud may bring back memories for Jelena fans, it seems like Bieber is happy as can be with his new love. And who is she, you might ask? The young model is the daughter of music legend Lionel Richie and sister to fashion guru Nicole Richie.
She was recently spotted with Biebs in Japan, just two weeks before her 18th birthday, where the couple seemed to be on a romantic getaway. We must say, the hot new couple does look cute together.
