Justin Bieber's post on Instagram that infuriated his fans
This past weekend, Justin Bieber grew angry with his fans, as they slammed his most recent girlfriend, Sofia Richie, the promiscuous daughter of singing legend Lionel Richie. Bieber’s fans do not like Sofia, due to the fact the 17-year-old has developed a bit of a reputation. She has been spotted with different famous men, which is particularly not a good look for an underage girl.
A few weeks ago, the underage aspiring model was seen in a West Hollywood nightclub very late at night, with a football player who is 10-years her senior (as covered in the Daily Mail newspaper). People began commenting online that Sofia is a minor, should have been at home at that hour and should not have been in a night club that serves alcohol, as it is illegal and jeopardized their liquor license.

Controversy courted Sofia's mother and now it is dogging her reputation as well. In 1988, Sofia's mother Diane Alexander, was repeatedly hit with a frying pan, as well as punched and kicked by Lionel Richie's then wife, Brenda Richie, after she caught the two cheating (Brenda beat Lionel too like he stole something). The scandal became a big punch line in the black community. Sofia's mother also went to jail for running an illegal, unlicensed plastic surgery office from her home, which wasn't funny, but rather dangerous.
Last week, Sofia popped up with 21-year-old Bieber, which displeased his fans (once again due to her reputation). They began leaving comments on Sofia’s social networking pages, as well as those belonging to Bieber, expressing their displeasure at the two dating. Bieber became angry and unwisely slammed his fans with a post on Instagram which stated, “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 fans were devastated. Some posted videos and pictures on social networking stating he repeatedly treats them badly.
Justin Bieber's response to Selena Gomez and then his fans
Some fans will be jealous, as they want to date Bieber. However, on the whole, they do not seem to like Sofia, once again, due to her reputation. Bieber’s ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez was not amused with Bieber’s treatment of his fans. She posted under one of his photos showing her disapproval, “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 anyone ever did.”
Bieber read it and slammed Gomez back, “It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love.” However, she told him the truth. Bieber later relented by posting, “I’m not one for anyone receiving hate. Hope you all can be kind to my friends and each other. And yes I love my beliebers.”
This post by an upset Bieber fan made its way around social networking
Fans should understand and most do that celebrities will date and at some point marry. That’s life. However, celebrities should be kind to their fans. At the end of the day, fans make entertainers and sports stars rich and famous. Fans support is needed and appreciation should be shown.
Bieber needs to treat his fans better. He used to be so nice to them. Now there is footage of Bieber telling them to stop throwing things on stage because it is “s*** I probably don’t want anyway.“ That wasn’t nice. Fans take time to draw and paint pictures or buy teddy bears and other gifts. Acknowledge their kindness and say thank you. It’s bad manners to do otherwise. The gifts you cannot use, donate them to reputable charities. The teddy bears could end up in the arms of a less fortunate or sick child, making them smile.
