He may have deleted his own Instagram, but it doesn’t appear that Justin Bieber is staying off the social media site completely. In fact, it looks like he’s taken to posting from his manager, Scooter Braun’s, account instead. See the photo and message here!
Right around the same time Justin Bieber, 22, deactivated his Instagram, Scooter Braun posted a photo of an ice hockey rink with the caption, “Hockey night…. Maybe I will only post on this page for now.” Paparazzi pics showed Justin playing hockey in California before taking down his IG, so it definitely seems like this message on Scooter’s page was sent from him!
Fans immediately took notice of the interesting caption and started flooding the comments section with the supportive hashtags “#RealBeliebersStay” and “#WeNeverLeftJustin.” Clearly, these loyal followers want the Biebs to know that they’re standing by him amidst all this drama with Sofia Richie, 17, and Selena Gomez, 23.
In case you’re just catching up, here’s what’s been going down: After getting dozens of mean comments when he posted photos with Sofia over the weekend, the 22-year-old threatened to make his Instagram private. That did NOT sit right with Sel, and she commented on his page that he shouldn’t be shutting out his fans, who have been there him since day one.
It became a whole war of words between the exes, with Justin accusing Selena of using him for attention, and her publicly claiming he cheated when they were together. Eventually, the “Kill ‘Em With Kindness” singer took to Snapchat to admit that what she wrote was “selfish and pointless,” but the damage had clearly already been done, as Justin deactivated his Instagram account around the same time.
Meanwhile, Sofia took to Twitter to ask fans to “stop the damn hate,” and urged her followers to “love who you want” and “love each other!!” Who will make the next move?!
HollywoodLifers, do you think it’s Justin posting from Scooter’s account? Do you think it’s weird that he’s doing that?
