Selena Gomez, 24, and Justin Bieber, 22, broke the Internet when they went at it on Instagram over the weekend, and there’s a lot to keep straight. Fortunately, we’ve broken it all down for you.

Of course, it all started when Justin Instagrammed no less than five pics of him and his new gal pal Sofia Richie, 17. JB’s account was flooded with pro-Selena, anti-Sofia comments.
Next, Justin issued a dramatic warning to everyone who follows him on Instagram, threatening to make his account private if the “hate” doesn’t stop. Naturally, he wrote this on a sixth photo of him and Sofia:

Here’s where it gets shocking. Selena got involved and gave her two cents on JB’s treatment of his fans, commenting that if he can’t take the heat, he should stop posting pics of himself with Sofia! “Don’t be mad at your fans,” she wrote, adding that they’re the ones who have supported him since the beginning. You go, Selly.
Justin’s ulta-mature response was to shade Sel for “using him for attention” in the days when they were together — yikes — and she fired back with an Instagram collage of herself interacting with fans, including a sweet caption about how they mean the world to her (as opposed to how JB feels about his fans). Your move, Justin!
