It seems that the whole Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber thing is going too far and, apparently fans aren’t willing to let go of this feud. The whole Internet has been divided into team Selena and team Hailey and has even resurfaced petty things from the past of both celebs that have nothing to do with what started it all. The bad thing is that this pitched battle has gone to extremes with senseless fights, which can only end with terrible damage to the integrity and mental health of many people, even the celebrities involved. This is precisely what is happening with Hailey Bieber, who has been the victim of ridicule and pretty nasty comments, so much so that Selena Gomez herself has had to intervene.

Although for many, Selena Gomez has been the victim of mockery and childish games, once again she proves she’s a mature woman and more importantly, that she will always advocate for peace and love. She knows when enough is enough of all this drama and, through her Instagram account, Selena shared a text in which, she claims, she was contacted by Hailey Bieber to let her know that she has been receiving death threats and colossal hatred from her fans.

The singer has asked her followers to stop attacking her since hate is not a sentiment she promotes. In addition, she reiterated that no one should be a victim of bullying no matter what.

“Hailey Bieber reached out to me and let me know that she has been receiving death threats and such hateful negativity. This isn’t what I stand for. No one should have to experience hate or bullying. I have always advocated for kindness and really want this all to stop,” the singer wrote via her Instagram stories.

The whole Selena/Hailey and Justin Bieber/Kylie and Kendall Jenner thing has gone too far and, the fans and media alike have been very involved in it; the controversy has ended up dynamiting the attitude of the fans, dividing them into a hate competition that can’t end well. Even we have to accept that.

If we think about it in depth, how must Hailey Bieber have felt to look for Selena and express to her what was going on? Well, all the celebrities involved pretended nothing was going on and went on with their lives without calming down a bit about what was going on in the Internet world.

What Happened between Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber?

This whole issue with both celebrities started many years ago when Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber put an end to their relationship. Although this is a long time ago, in 2023, the celebrities were again involved in controversy after Hailey was accused of bullying the singer, something that was clearly not well seen by the followers of the latter, in fact, by anyone in the world, as the model lost a huge amount of followers, as well as her friends the Jenners.

Through social networks theories abound that Hailey has always wanted to be Selena’s copy, both women are compared all the time, and users maintain a rivalry very difficult to cope with. On the other hand, the theory also emerged that Justin Bieber married Hailey Bieber to get his U.S. residency paperwork in order and not for love as they have always made him believe.

So far, Selena Gomez has been the only one to speak out publicly about the chaos. And once again, she’s demonstrating the world the amazing woman she is and the positive influence she can have.
