Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez used to be such darlings until they broke up some time ago. Justin has now moved on and has gotten a new girlfriend in Sofia Ritchie.
It seems that Bieber fans are not pleased with his choice of girlfriend and therefore the singer has found himself and the girl trolled a lot on social media.
Bieber even threatened to turn his Instagram account private if his fans continued with the hate directed towards his new girlfriend.
Justin said, “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”
Selena Gomez went on to chide the popstar over such a suggestion saying,
‘If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol – it should be special between you two only,’ Selena wrote.
‘Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you.’
Justin came back with his own tart response – which a fan re-posted – insinuating that the Come & Get It star ‘used me for attention.’
‘It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love,’ Justin later wrote.
He followed that up by writing: ‘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 (sic).’
Selena shared a fan collage which could be seen as a veiled swipe at Justin and captioned it, “You matter most. Thank you letting me do what I love every day.”
