The bad-boy pop star has hit things with his car, threw eggs at people’s houses, and peed in public -- he has done it all! But this time, maybe he might have taken things a bit too far-fetched considering how people are absolutely furious with his actions.
Justin Bieber has been quite lowkey ever since, should we say, he got married to his model girlfriend Hailey Baldwin. With the couple getting married last year, Bieber hasn't been releasing music as often as one might want, especially the Beliebers, reported CNN. But recently, the Sorry hitmaker got into some serious trouble and has now apologized for his actions. Sure, he has got into a lot of fracases in the past. If you've watched the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber, you know what we are talking about!
The bad-boy pop star has hit things with his car, threw eggs at people’s houses, and peed in public - he has done it all! But this time, maybe he might have taken things a bit too far-fetched considering how people are absolutely livid with his actions. What started out as a mere April Fool's Day prank may have just turned into a life lesson for the Baby singer.
Is it too late to say sorry? Well absolutely not. And that is exactly why he apologized. But where did he go wrong? Well, to begin with, he joked about his wife being pregnant on social media. Many were quite offended with his prank considering pregnancy is no laughing matter to those struggling with fertility issues. Leave it to the Bieber to truly rile up social media with his outrageous antics.
Biebs posted a series of photos of Hailey Baldwin in which she appeared to be in a doctor's office. Interestingly enough, she had her hands on her stomach and that had us wondering -- oh boy, this could be happening! It is finally happening. The caption on the photo read, “If U thought it was April fools.”
But guess what, he followed it up with another picture that showed a puppy photoshopped into the sonogram as he wrote, “Wait omg is that a...APRIL FOOLS.” And that's when it all started. A barrage of criticism and backlash swung right onto him with many social media users pointing out what he had done was truly awful and that it was totally insensitive from his part.
A Twitter user said: "Justin Bieber joking about Hayley being pregnant is soooooo insensitive considering there are so many women out there that cannot get pregnant or have lost children." Meanwhile, another Twitter user said, "Justin Bieber faking Hailey being pregnant is… gross & insensitive."
But you know, there's a reason why the Beliebers pretty much worship him and he did not let them down. Yes, he made a mistake and he owned up to it! Taking to Instagram, Bieber wrote a long message, apologizing for what he had done.
"There’s always gonna be people offended, there’s also people who don’t take jokes very well, I am a prankster and it was APRIL FOOLS. I didn’t at all mean to be insensitive to people who can’t have children. A lot of people I know, their first go to prank on April fools is telling their parents they are pregnant to get a big reaction." He added, "But I will apologize anyway and take responsibility and say sorry to people who were offended. I truly don’t want anyone to be hurt by a prank. It’s like when I shoved cake in my little sister's face for her birthday expecting her to laugh but she cried."
He concluded the post by saying, "You sometimes just don’t know what will hurt someone’s feelings not to compare pregnancy with cake in the face but it’s just to paint the picture of not knowing what will offend. Some might have laughed but some were offended .. I think With pranks u sometimes have to roll that dice. #prankster #dennisthemenace #sorry#truly."
Bieber has often acknowledged his towering stack of notorious behavior and has always ensured making amends for his actions. And it is no surprise, he did it again. So if you're a Belieber, this was just one of those pranks that went awry but you know deep down, Biebs apologized whole-heartedly and probably, it's about time we cut him some slack!
