Justin Bieber Deletes Instagram Account | Fans Creates Hashtag #JustinDeactivatedParty
Justin Bieber is ending his relationship with Instagram.
The pop superstar has deleted his account following criticism from fans and a public spat with ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez.
According to Rolling Stone, followers criticized Bieber after he posted photos of his rumored girlfriend, model Sofia Richie — Lionel Richie’s 17-year-old daughter.
Upset with the comments, JB fired back: “I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate. This is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like.”
The drama continued with Bieber’s ex Selena Gomez jumping in the mix. “If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol,” she wrote in the comments. “it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you. They were there for you before anyone.”
Bieber snapped back: “It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love.”
But Gomez would use some of his own words against him in response: “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.”
That’s when Bieber offered one final jab, hinting at Zayn Malik’s potential involvement. “I cheated,” he wrote back. “oh I forgot about You and Zayn?”
For her part, Selena took to Snapchat to offer a statement. “What I said was selfish,” she wrote, “and pointless.”
