Canadian born pop star, Justin Bieber, quit Instagram Monday 15 after a section of his followers turned “hating”.
It all started when the once upon a time “teen star” posted some photos of himself with his 17-year-old alleged girlfriend Sophia Richie- daughter to Lionel Richie.
The post was not welcomed with some of his online followers who seemingly had much to comment about it- most of which was not nice.
The 22-year-old however, did not take the comments kindly- threatening to block access to his social media accounts- a pledge that he followed with action.
“I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate,” the 22-year-old pop star wrote in a caption of a black and white photo of himself and 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 drama turned serious after Bieber’s ex, singer Selena Gomez, joined the conversation asking the sorry hit-maker to handle the heated energy.
“If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol – it should be special between you two only,” Gomez wrote on Instagram. “Don’t be mad at your fans,” she added. “They love you.”
Bieber clapped back by commenting, “It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love.”
He then deleted his account.
It is reported that the musician is not picking up Gomez’s phone calls since pulling out.
