Yesterday (August 15), the internet was awash with drama over Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Justin’s Instagram account and the tag #SelenaEndingJustinParty.

Basically, things got a *tiny* bit heated between Selena Gomez and her ex Justin Bieber after fans started leaving the snake emoji under pictures of Justin and his alleged new bae, Sofia Richie.

Writing on Instagram, Justin said that he was “gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate this is getting out of hand,” before adding, “If you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like.”

This sparked a response by Selena, who told him to not blame his fans.

However, after a public row in the comments on Instagram, it seems that Justin has decided to follow through with his threats of de-activating his account.

Now when you head to Justin’s Instagram page, the following appears:

We’re not going to lie, we’re totally going to miss the Biebs from Instagram. We really enjoyed seeing a behind-the-scenes look into his crazy life while he was on tour (and the various shirtless pics that were uploaded, too 😳).

Of course, it’s never okay to troll anyone online, and we don’t condone online bullying or hate ever. Therefore, we totally get why Justin decided to take his account down. It must be hard to have every element of your life scrutinized, and social media has just made that easier.

That coupled with his previous comments about how he finds fame hard on his mental health, and perhaps it’s a for the best that at the moment Justin take some time away from Instagram.

We hope that Justin is happy and healthy and that he can continue to enjoy the rest of his “Purpose World Tour.”
