Selena Gomez has always had a good head on her shoulders and has always appreciated her fans. So when her former boyfriend Justin Bieber started threatening his fans, she did something about it.
Justin Bieber threatened to make his Instagram account private if Beliebers did not stop leaving negative comments on his pictures of his current girlfriend, 17-year-old Sofia Richie.
Selena had some words of wisdom for the "Sorry" singer, which she posted to one of the photos of Richie:
"If you can't handle the hate, then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol- It should be special between you two only. Don't be mad at your fans. They love you and supported you before any one ever did."
While fans have nothing but praise for Selena's defense, Justin was less than thrilled. In his response, he claimed Selena "used" him for his fame, and that she is pointing "the finger" at his new relationship.
"It's funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way," he wrote. "Sad. All love."
Justin posted his love to fans in a separate comment: "I'm not one for anyone receiving hate. Hope u can all be kind to my friends and eachother. And yes I love my belibers."
Unfortunately, it looks like Selena and Justin did not end their romance on a positive note, because Selena left another comment in response:
"Funny how the ones that cheated multiple times, are pointing the finger at the ones that were forgiving and supportive, no wonder fans are mad. Sad. All love."
Even in the midst of an Instagram war, Selena manages to keep her cool and turn our attention back to one simple fact: celebrities are nothing without their fans.
Guess Selena and Justin won't be sending holidays cards to each other this year.
