Justin Bieber has belatedly come to the realization that his fans are complete morons. I'm not sure how he missed the many earlier and more obvious signs (the fact that they allow themselves to be called "Beliebers" should have been a clue), but every man has his tipping point and Justin's came when his fans went piranha on his "friend" on Instagram.
Biebs posted this pic of himself and Sofia Richie, the 17-year-old daughter of Lionel Richie, allegedly just hanging out but everyone knows Biebs doesn't wear belts for a reason. Those pants come off mighty quickly ... particularly when he's in Brazil ... and of course people immediately starting pouring shite all over her. So he did the honourable thing, the only thing a man in this day and age can do since no one challenges anyone to duels anymore, unfortunately: he quit Instagram.
"If you guys are really fans you wouldn't be so mean to people that I like," he intoned.
But apparently the hate continued, and because this entire scenario wasn't ridiculous enough already, Bieber's ex, Selena Gomez, has now weighed in.
"If you can't handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol - it should be special between you two only," Gomez wrote on Instagram.
"Don't be mad at your fans," she added. "They love you."
Well, technically, Selena, that's probably horseshit, and furthermore he can't hear you because he's quit Instagram, but surely you knew that? I did mention it quite prominently, early and often throughout this post. Honestly. I literally can't imagine a relationship in which BOTH people are as dim as nightlights. Thank God they didn't breed, is all I can say.
