Justin Bieber made a public statement slamming the hateful remarks directed towards wife and model Hailey Baldwin by fans of former girlfriend and singer Selena Gomez
Justin Bieber took to Instagram to school trolls who made disparaging remarks about his wife and model Hailey Baldwin. The singer responded to a particular video made by a Selena Gomez fan that contained slurs directed towards his wife.
The troll urged fans to ‘go after’ Baldwin because ‘Selena is better’ than her. She said, "This is the time where they will not be turning off comments. So we need to [expletive] bombard that [expletive] with Jelena and how Selena is better. Go after her, please, let’s all go after her.”
Beiber called the troll a ‘sad excuse of a human.’ He took a stance against cyber bullying and advocated for more positivity online.
He wrote, "This sad excuse of a human just encouraged people on video to literally go after my wife telling people to say that my previous relationship was better so on and so forth. I just wanted to share this so people get an idea of what we face on a day to day.”
"It is extremely hard to choose the high road when I see people like this try and rally to gather people to bully the person I love most in the world. It is not right. As many people as there are that want to spend their time publicly degrading shaming and trying to humiliate us we would like to ask those who have it in them to lift us up in prayer. We need prayer and support as we continue to put ourselves out there!”
"I think about her life and how miserable she must be to want to spend her life trying to make others feels small. The lesson here is SHES THE ONE MISSING OUT. Life is fulfilling when you uplift and add value to people! A life where you want to make others feel small will leave you with no friends and no real JOY," the singer wrote on his Instagram story.
Hailey echoed her husband’s sentiments and wrote in defense of herself, "I usually stay quiet and don't acknowledge these things because I need to protect myself and my mental health." (sic)
"But it has truly gotten to a level of anger and hate that is shockingly unhealthy and sad. I would never in a million years wish for someone to be treated this way and I will never condone this kind of hateful behavior."
The model emphasized on how women need to uplift each other. She wrote, it is time to “support, uplift, and encourage other women in this industry and wish them nothing but love and success."
Hailey took the high road, writing, "Wishing the young woman in that video all the best, I hope she finds love, peace and happiness in this life!"
