Try. Not. To. Panic. After days of threatening online action, Justin Bieber has officially deactivated his Instagram account. (And just when he got a cute new puppy!)
Over the weekend, the Biebs told his followers that he would set his account to private if they continued to harass his new lady love, Sofia Richie. This prompted both widespread panic in the Belieber community and rather public shade from his exes, Selena Gomez and Hailey Baldwin.
Shortly after the "Sorry" singer took down his account entirely, Gomez took to Snapchat to post an apology that appears to be related to the situation.
"What I said was selfish and pointless," she wrote.
It was widely reported that Gomez and Bieber had a heated back and forth in the comments of Instagram about Bieber's threat to make his account private. Though the comments were deleted, fans posted screengrabs.
"If you can't handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol - it should be special between you two only," Gomez allegedly wrote. "Don't be mad at your fans. They love you."
According to the screengrabs, Bieber replied, "It's funny to see people that used me for attention and still trying to point the finger this way. Sad. All love. I'm not one for anyone receiving hate."
The famous exes then supposedly accused one another of cheating, with the Biebs saying that Gomez cheated with Gigi Hadid's current boyfriend, Zayn Malik.
