Gomez threw in the towel after publicly calling out her ex, resulting in him deleting his Instagram account.
The 24-year-old posted agroveling apology on Snapchat that appeared to take back everything she’d said.
The depressing black and white Snap read,
What I said was selfish and pointless.
Damn it, Selena!
She was getting a strong backing from Beliebers, who were quickly defecting amidst the feud.
Wait, are you a bit lost? You probably need some context if you’re coming into this fresh.
Basically, Bieber has deleted his Insta because people were posting too many mean comments about his girlfriend, Sofia Richie.
Just a day ago, the 22-year-old threatened to make his page private.
In one post,he said,
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.
So instead of laying off the poor guy, Beliebers sparked a rebellion, with some apparently perceiving his message as betrayal.
The hashtag#RIPBelieberswas born, andfans were giving him sass online.
Then former flame Selena Gomezgot involvedby replying to his threat on Instagram.
Under a photo of Bieber and Sofia Richie, She said,
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.
Bieber felt like he had to respond to the public call out, so he wrote back:

Never apologize for saying what you feel, that’s like saying sorry for being real. You have our back @SelenaGomez.

Girl he said he would go private BEFORE you commented. You don’t need to feel bad for what you said. @selenagomez
