Justin Bieber has deleted his Instagram account, leaving the world in turmoil and the future uncertain for us all.
Instagram’s sixth most famous user, Bieber bid farewell to his 77.8 million followers last night after receiving negative messages from fans.
Bieber had recently started posting photos with Sofia Richie, Lionel Richie’s 17-year-old daughter, and many fans were not pleased to see hints that Bieber had a new girlfriend.
On last Instagram posts, Bieber wrote:
“I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate this is getting out of hand.”
His ex-girlfriend singer Selena Gomez responded:
“If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol.”
“It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way,” Bieber replied.
“Sad. All love.” Gomez’s final response hinted that he’d cheated on her when they were dating, adding, “no wonder the fans are mad.”
The hashtag #JustinDeactivatedParty became Twitter’s top trending topic on Tuesday morning, with fans expressing both support and criticism for his decision to quit Instagram.
