Instagram/Justin Bieber

He has one of the most visited Instagram accounts in the world, but Justin Bieber might soon be cracking down on haters and making everything private.

Basically, he’s sick of all the mean comments directed at his new special friend Sofia Richie (sister of Nicole Richie).

Bieber recently posted a series of playful black-and-white photos of himself with Ritchie, which lead some fans to compare Richie to Hailey Baldwin, saying Baldwin was a “better girlfriend.”

Commenters also said that Justin should be loyal to his Belieber family instead of a girl.

There were also numerous #TEAMSELENA comments, with many Instagram users calling Justin a snake for leaving Selena Gomez.

This is looking like an all too classic case of Bieber’s fans feeling like they have some sort of ownership over the star, which unfortunately is often par for the course  with celebrities who have been mega-famous heartthrobs since they were twelve.

It’s undeniable that Bieber and Richie are really cute together, so everyone should just settle down!

We hope that Bieber can resolve the dispute and not have to make his Instagram private, because — along with the rest of humanity — we enjoy this tiny peephole into his life.

And at the end of the day Justin Bieber is a human just like everyone else, and he deserves to be happy. That includes hanging out with Sofia Richie, or Hailey Baldwin, or anyone else he so chooses (and we’re like, totally down to hang…just sayin.’)
