Justin Bieber’s no stranger to relationship drama, but the backlash he’s facing from fans over his new romance with Sofia Richie is becoming too much to handle. If his fans don’t stop freaking out, he might make his Instagram private! Click through to see his serious threat!
“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,” Justin Bieber, 22, wrote as the caption of a pic he posted to Instagram on the night of August 13. It’s a cute black and white shot of himself in a car with new lady Sofia Richie, 17, and they look happy as clams together.
If Justin’s message wasn’t clear enough, he likes Sofia, and he wants the Beliebers to know that! Yes, he like-likes her, and they can’t do anything about it, no matter how hard they try! Justin’s seriously sick of getting nothing but hate in the comments on his adorable photos of Sofia on his account.
He’s getting comments like “Jelena is better,” “Jailey Forever,” and just plain snake and cow emojis. Rude. Some extremely out of line commenters are calling Sofia a b**ch, for the plain reason that Justin likes her. Come on, Beliebers! Not okay! Now that Justin posted his message, his Instagrams have been filled with apologetic and positive comments from fans. Are they too little, too late? Or will Justin reconsider making his profile private now that he knows the hate is cooling down?
There’s no doubt about it; Justin really likes Sofia! She’s been all over Tokyo with Justin as he hits up the city for his Purpose tour shows on August 13 and 14, and they haven’t been shy about PDA. An eagle-eyed fan captured a video, posted to Justin Bieber Tracker on August 13, that appears to show Justin squeezing Sofia’s butt! Oh, young love!
HollywoodLifers, what will you do if Justin makes his Instagram private?!
