It’s been a while since Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber were a couple, but that hasn’t stopped the two from interacting with each other. It’s not always in a good way, and this new controversy comes after Bieber posted some photos of him and his new rumored girlfriend Sofia Richie (daughter of Lionel Richie).
Bieber posted five similar photos of himself with Richie and after receiving rude comments from fans he posted the fifth photo again, threatening to make his Instagram private if his fans didn’t stop with the hate.
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.
It is great that Bieber is sticking up for Richie, but threatening to make his Instagram private will hardly solve the problem as his fans are probably already following him. Making his account private only makes it so new people can’t follow him unless he approves them. Gomez took issue with the threat as she believes fans should be treated better. She commented on the post:
If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol – it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you and supported you before anyone ever did.
