It gets worse! Justin Bieber deletes Instagram after ugly Insta-fued with Selena Gomez
After threatening to make his Instagram page private if fans didn't stop hating on his new flame Sofia Richie, Justin Bieber took it a step further on Monday as he deleted his account, which boasted 77.8 million followers
The move came moments after the pop star had switched his account to private, before changing his mind and making his page public again moments later - and then deleting it entirely. And as a result, Beliebers were left devastated.

Before removing his account, the singer posted that the hate directed at Sofia was "getting out of hand," prompting Selena to tell her ex-boyfriend to simply stop posting the photos.
And as a result, Selena and Justin got involved in a war of words.
"It’s funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way. Sad. All love," the Sorry hitmaker responded to Selena.
"I’m not one for anyone receiving hate. Hope u all can be kind to my friends and each other. And yes, I love all my beliebers," he added.
Selena then accused Justin of cheating on her when they were dating, hitting back: "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. All love."
