Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez publicly went at it on Instagram on Aug. 14, but there have actually been multiple incidents of them shading each other on social media in the past. You just have to know what to look for! To make it easy, we’ve rounded up six times that the popstars have dissed one another on Instagram and Twitter, from shady comments on pics to direct tweets dating back to 2014 — check it out!
Where do we even begin? Selena Gomez, 24, and Justin Bieber, 22, have one of the most passionate relationships in Hollywood, with more ups and downs than any other couple. Without further ado, grab some popcorn and settle in for a comprehensive history of Justin and Selena’s best social media disses, starting with the one following their most explosive breakup!
Let’s take it back to 2014, when Jelena was on-and-off, acting like everything was peachy when they were “on”, but dissing each other when they were “off”. At one point, Justin, who was dating Yovanna Ventura and acting like the little boy he was, called out Selena. “If you can’t laugh at yourself you are not having fun,” Justin tweeted on July 17. “Don’t take things so serious. Smile.” Obviously, it was a comment about his relationship with Sel, which often had its bad moments.
Selena’s responsible for similar behavior, though. “Sometimes we think we aren’t good enough,” Selena tweeted on Oct. 1, 2014, shortly after JB was spotted getting dinner with Kendall Jenner in Paris. “But then I realize when I think I’m alone I have God…we have to learn the hard way sometimes.” Clearly, she was pointing out that Justin makes her feel insecure.
Jelena doesn’t just restrict their feuding behavior to Twitter — they’re both active on Instagram, too. In Nov. 2014, Justin blasted Selena by posting an Instagram video of himself on a coffee date with Kendall, flaunting their flirty friendship (flirtationship?. Not very nice of him, considering Sel was still hurting from their latest split. Let’s also not forget about the time Justin posted a hot selfie with Hailey Baldwin on Instagram — also in Nov. 2014 — to try and make Selly jealous.
Selena also shaded JB on Instagram in Dec. 2015, when she made a sneaky comment on a fan photo, dissing Justin by professing her preference for One Direction’s album Made in the A.M. over Justin’s Purpose:

That brings us to this year, specifically their crazy social media feud, which went down on Aug. 14. Our jaws completely dropped as the drama unfolded before our eyes! Selena first publicly commented on Justin’s Instagram that he should stop posting pics of himself and Sofia Richie on Instagram if he can’t handle the fans’ reactions. Justin fired back that she “used him for attention” via the same comment thread, and Selena allegedly wrote back that Justin “cheated multiple times”, and called it “sad”. Long story short, fans got #SelenaEndsJustinParty to trend on Twitter. Damn!
