Is it too late now to say sorry? Justin Bieber apologises for preggie prank
While every other person is probably over April Fool's Day by now, the Bieliebers were still hanging on to the fact that Justin Bieber pranked them and they dragged him until he issued an apology.
Justin shared a snap of a sonogram, shortly followed by one of his wife Hailey in a doctor's room. But just as Bieliebers got ready to celebrate baby Bieber, Justin revealed that it was all a lie.
Needless to say, feelings were caught! Justin had to apologise.
"There's always gonna be people offended, there are 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. But I will apologise anyway and take responsibility and say sorry to people who were offended," he said in the statement.
Justin explained that it was never his intention to hurt anyone and he didn't think that people would take it so seriously.
"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. 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."
