Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Justin Bieber is not happy with his fans after he has been posting photos of him with Sofia Richie, his rumored girlfriend, causing his followers to bash her so he threatened to make his Instagram private.
The 22-year-old “Sorry” singer has been posting photos on his Instagram account with the daughter of Lionel Richie and many have been leaving mean comments on the photos. He then uploaded a black and white photos with Sofia once again and in the caption, 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."
Some fans still did not understand what Bieber wanted, which is to stop the bashing, as other Beliebers took to Twitter to say that the warning is an insult to their fandom, they are upset that he called them fans, and making it seem like Bieber is choosing Sofia over them. Commenters made the hashtag “RIPBeliebers” trend on Twitter and Instagram . The snake emoji , which is in reference to Sofia, was also used in the comments. One commenter wrote: “Ohh Justin you honestly don't see how Sofia's a snake but whatever, your problem.”
Sofia, who is turning 18 this August 24, has disabled the comments on her Instagram account. She has also been posting photos of her with Bieber on the photo-sharing social media platform. Bieber first posted photos of Sofia on his Instagram account on Friday.
Sofia has been the target of comments related to Bieber when she was photographed with the singer in California and in Japan. She was accompanying Bieber on some of his tours.
According to sources, Sofia and Bieber hanging out is nothing serious are the two are just friends.
