The terrible soap opera that keeps getting canceled and moved to other, less-watched networks that is Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s relationship has just popped up in the tabloids again, and it’s all thanks to a series of Instagram comments their fans were able to screengrab in time. God bless them.
On Sunday, Bieber posted no fewer than six photos of him mugging for the camera alongside new girlfriend Sofia Richie. I will not even begin to explain who Richie is, as the only thing you need to know is that Beliebers hate her guts. Upset by hateful comments they left on his photos, Bieber wrote:
“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.”
This threat drew the ire of both his fans and his enemies, including one Selena Gomez. In response to the post, she reportedly commented:
“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.”
This set Justin off, and he wrote:
“It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love. I’m not one for anyone receiving hate. Hope u all can be kind to my friends and eachother [sic]. And yes I love my beliebers.”
But two can play the “sad” game! Selena responded with a claim that Bieber cheated on her “multiple times”:
Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive, no wonder fans are mad. Sad. All love.
Selena then posted several pictures of herself hugging her fans.
PopCrush’s Bradley Stern put it best:
The insatiable chopping block that is The View is ready to yell, “OFF WITH HER HEAD AND THE SEVEN THOUGHTS INSIDE IT,” at Raven-Symoné. Page Six has a statement from an insider (Joy Behar?) who said:
“The plan is to phase Raven out slowly. She has some projects cooking, and they’ll say she left to focus on those.”
Symoné’s “projects” are likely to include deciding what to eat for dinner, calling Time Warner to complain about her wifi signal, and picking up a package at the UPS office.
