Sofia Richie may have finally spoken! After her new flame Justin Bieber got into it on Instagram with his ex Selena Gomez, Sofia seems to have taken to Twitter to declare that they need to ‘stop the damn hate.’ See the response to the Jelena feud right here!
“#purposetour is still on… The music is still coming.. Love who you want… Stop the damn hate… And love each other!!”said a tweet that seemed to be from Sofia on Aug. 16. The account isn’t verified, which is weird because her Instagram is, and she said on Snapchat that she doesn’t have a Twitter, but she could just be joking. The feelings in the tweet seem genuine, so if it is her, this is one hell of a response! The tweet made no mention of Selena, but there was no way Sofia didn’t have Justin‘s feud with Selena in mind when she tweeted her “stop the hate” message!
While Sofia, 17, is clearly not an advocate of the hate that Justin’s fans and Selena, 24, have shown since Justin, 22, threatened to make his Instagram private, she was technically the reason all of this started. After Justin shared several pictures with Sofia, his fans said some not-so-nice things about her, and JB was not happy with his fans — which made them think that he was putting a new romance above his longtime Beliebers. Out of nowhere, Selena got involved, and then the hate really started!
Selena slammed Justin for putting a girl before his fans in a comment on one of his pictures with Sofia, to which Justin quickly fired back insinuating that Sel had used him for attention when they were together. She then retaliated by going to an even more personal level and calling Justin out for cheating. This shocking turn of events surely caught Sofia by surprise, which is likely what resulted in her chiming in now!
But Sofia’s advocating to stop the hate actually wasn’t the first time she attempted to calm the storm. After fans caused an uproar over Justin’s Instagram threat (even starting the hashtag #RIPBeliebers), Sofia tried to reassure fans that he wasn’t going to forget about them while dating her!
Justin is not shutting out his beliebers. He's thankful everyday for y'all, y'all got him here.. He doesn't forget that.. Period

Sofia and Justin haven’t been shy about flaunting that they’re totally into each other, but it sounds like Sofia already has Justin’s back too. Could this result in a new feud between Sofia and Selena? That’s certainly not what Sofia seems to want, but we suppose time will only tell!
