Selena Gomez is calling for a truce following her fanbase’s disparagement of Hailey Bieber!
It is no secret that the celebrities have been pitted against each other by their admirers for years. The ongoing war has been brewing between Selenators and Beliebers over the women’s relationship with the Canadian heartthrob, Justin Bieber.
However, the revival of their beef, due to the model’s alleged attacks on the Disney alum, sparked massive internet outrage, with fans flooding Hailey’s social media pages with insults. However, Gomez is saying enough is enough!
Selena Gomez Reminds Fans That She Is An Advocate Of Love Not War
Following the resurrection of the media personality’s “mean girl” tag, Selenators defended their favorite pop idol the only way they knew how — fighting a bully with the same treatment. However, fans’ love for the former child star may have blinded them from the truth.
After so much back and forth between Selenators and Hailey’s fans, Gomez recently broke her silence to address her perceived issues with her ex-boyfriend’s wife. Taking to her Instagram Story, the “Wizards of Waverly Place” star warned her admirers to stop spreading hate.
“Hailey Bieber reached out to me and let me know that she has been receiving death threats and such hateful negativity,” the entertainer began her message for peace. “This isn’t what I stand for. No one should have to experience hate or bullying.”
Making it clear that she does not approve of any form of degradation, the 30-year-old wrote: “I’ve always advocated for kindness and really want this all to stop. ❤”
If anyone doubted the Glamour Beauty Award winner’s words, the “Calm Down” songstress further illuminated her stance by following Hailey on Instagram. This proved the multi-hyphenate star practiced the love she preached even against someone who seemingly disliked her. Hailey is yet to follow back, however.
For those unaware of what went down between Gomez and the “Yummy” singer’s wife — if there even is anyone like that —the drama rumors began in January after paparazzi released photos of the Disney alum in a swimsuit.
The pictures were taken during the “Same Old Love” artist’s vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Following the snaps came the now-deleted TikTok of Hailey with her friends Kendall Jenner and Justine Skye, lip-syncing to audio, “I’m not saying she deserves it, but I’m saying God’s timing is always right.”
Immediately fans re-uploaded the clip, speculating that the video had been directed at Gomez, who had gained weight. When the TikToker Rivet Soro aired her suspicions about the footage, Gomez allegedly responded: “It’s okay! I don’t let these things get me down! Be nice to everyone!”
Screenshots of the comment section also showed a reply from Hailey that read, “I never comment on this type of thing, but we were just having a girls’ night and did a random TikTok sound for fun. It’s not directed at anyone.”
However, things soon intensified days after when the “Only Murders In The Building” actress posted playful pictures and videos of herself, joking with fans that she had “accidentally laminated my brows too much.”
Within minutes, Hailey’s best pal Kylie Jenner posted two cryptic photos to her Instagram story that fans believe were aimed at Gomez. The first image was a selfie with a caption that read “This was an accident?????” written in text placed over her brows. The next pic was a screenshot of a FaceTime call with Hailey and the both of them zoomed in on their eyebrows.
Soon TikTok users went into a frenzy as several described Hailey and Jennner’s actions as “mean girl” and “childish” behavior. “It’s not a coincidence anymore,” a top commenter wrote on a viral TikTok recapping the ordeal.
Afterward, the Arizona native’s perceived “mean girl” attitude worsened after a resurfaced clip showed the model sticking out her tongue when Taylor Swift’s album was mentioned. Underneath this post, Gomez stoked the flames by writing: “So sorry, my best friend is and continues to be one of the best in the game.”
She also supported a TikTok post, where the fan called her alleged nemesis a “nepo baby,” “bitch,” and other insulting names. This individual was among the thousands who harshly criticized Hailey on her social media feeds since the drama began.
Justin Bieber Seemingly Slammed His Ex-Girlfriend Amid Her Feud With His Wife
Earlier this month, it seemed Justin joined the drama between his ex-girlfriend and wife. Selenators believed the Canadian singer attacked Gomez with a cryptic message shared at his 29th birthday bash.
The star-studded event included celebrities like Leon Bridges, Billie Eilish, and The Kid LAROI, who enjoyed the lavish affair alongside a strange souvenir. The party gift came with the statement: “I’m so grateful that I didn’t end up with what I thought I wanted.”
Although Justin did not explain why those words were etched on his birthday souvenir, his message seemed like a clap-back at the “Come And Get It” songstress. As you may know, The BMI Award winner and the Texas native shared an on-and-off romance from 2010 until 2018.
Following the revelation of his cryptic post, fans attacked the “Beauty And A Beat” singer on social media. Many described his gesture as “petty,” while others claimed the entertainer had been “brainwashed” by his wife.
