Is it too late now to say sorry? Yes, it is! Justin Bieber deleted his Instagram Monday evening. Unfortunately, it should come as no surprise because a few days ago he took to the social media platform warning his haters to lay-off his rumored girlfriend, Sophia Richie.
“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.”
After Bieber expressed his sentiments, his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, weighed in.
“If you can’t handle the hate, then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol,” Gomez commented on Bieber’s photo. “It should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you.”
Justin, of course, replied, “It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way, sad. All Love.”

Selena later apologized on Snapchat.
Some fans suggested that Bieber disables his comment section, which is a new feature on Instagram.
The goal of the feature is to “make IG a friendly, fun and most importantly, safe place for self-expressing,” according to the Washington Post.
Over the last couple weeks, stars like Jhene Aiko, Tyga and now, Sofia Richie (model and daughter of Lionel Richie) have either disabled or deleted their accounts. Also, Leslie Jones (Ghostbusters) and Fifth Harmony member Normani Kordei recently quit Twitter because of racist and negative comments.
So we have to ask, should celebrities delete their social media or disable their comment section? Weigh In below.
