With a simple but forceful statement, Selena wrote, “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've always advocated for kindness and really want this all to stop. (red heart emoji).”
Hailey is married to Selena's ex-boyfriend, singer Justin Bieber. Over the past few weeks, social media users especially those on TikTok have claimed that Hailey is a “mean girl” and she and her friends haven't always treated Selena kindly. After Selena had posted some self-deprecating videos of herself on TikTok and Instagram Stories. She had said about herself, "I laminated my brows too much." Later, Kylie Jenner posted a photo of herself on her Instagram Story with the caption "this was an accident???" over her brows. She also shared a picture of her friend Hailey Bieber's brows.
Fans took this as an attack on Selena. Earlier this month, Selena had thanked fans for their support through her TikTok account and said, “Please, please be kinder and consider others mental health. My heart has been heavy, and I only want good for everyone. All my love.” This is the first time that Selena has addressed Hailey by name through her social media channels. Last year, Selena and Hailey had met up and posed for a photo at the 2022 Academy Museum Met Gala.
Selena is currently shooting for the third season of the Emmy-nominated series Only Murders in the Building with Steve Martin and Martin Short. The actor was recently seen on the streets of New York City in a wedding dress while filming for the show.
