It’s been a war of words on Justin Bieber‘s Instagram the past few days, and now, he’s deleted his account entirely.

Yep, JB initially switched his account to private yesterday, before changing his mind and making it public again, and later getting rid of it completely.

His decision to delete it made sense, because if he set the account to private, it would have meant his posts were still available to his 77.8 million followers, and he would have had to individually approve each request after that. Yikes!

His Beliebers weren’t happy after they realised he’d privatised his account…

“In the moment you went privat (sic) you lost many fans…” one user wrote, while another said “and now we are leaving u.”

Justin didn’t seem bothered by the whole ordeal though, because he was spotted playing ice hockey in California the same night.

JB’s move came after he threatened to make his account private if fans didn’t stop hating on rumoured new GF Sofia Richie.

He 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.”


His ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez then took a swipe at the star, writing:  “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.”



This if course started a war of words between the exes, with them both then accusing each other of cheating, and Justin hinting that Sel hooked up with Zayn Malik while they were still together.

What’s more, another one of JB’s exes, Hailey Baldwin, posted a cryptic message on Insta about people “taking responsibility for actions” “misplacing blame” and trying to “manipulate a situation to make yourself look better.”

Soon after that, Hailey and Justin unfollowed each other on Insta, with an insider later telling People: “Justin unfollowed Hailey on social media, and now all their friends are talking s*** on Sofia and him and how messed up it is.”

Hmm, let’s see how long it is before he re-activates his account…
