#SelenaGomez #HaileyBieber #Bullying
Hailey Bieber has not been bullying anyone, this poor woman has been used as a scapegoat. This is sad that she is treated this way because she married Justin Bieber. Mental health is real and I pray for Hailey Selena and their family. Pitting woman against woman is sooooo ugly. Truly living in the last days, people's hearts are so cold against people.
Also, just because you have money doesn't mean you are far more superior than the rest of the world.
It's really sad how grown men and women are making things out of context to fit their teenage or childhood fantasies and pitting two women against each other. Mind you they're living their lives and getting income, and also spending time wisely, the time you all are wasting.I'm seeing stories of this two weat too much on my fyp and it's getting annoying😒.
Super Star Selena!!!!
Well then shut up Hailey stop bullying Selena
OH MY GOD. WHY ARE THEY HAVING SELENA DO OR SAY ANYTHING ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON WITH HAILEY ITS LIKE SHE IS CALLED UPON LIKE HER FAIRY GOD MOTHER!! I DONT THINK THIS IS A SELENA AND HAILEY THING ANYMORE. .. ITS MORE PEOPLE JUST TALKING ABOUT JUSTIN AND HAILEY AND THEY CANT EQUATE THAT SELENA IS NOT IN THAT PICTURE. ITS ODD
Can’t be bullied online if you’re not online
Oh great, now I have a stalker…
The same generation that is sooooo hyper sensitive… is the same generation sending death threats.
Have u heard about the devastating tornadoes in the southeast? Stick to what ur station news program is about. Not celebrities🤡🤡🤡
Hailey Bieber started and Selena Gomez fans had made her taste her own medicine and snowflake doesn't like it.
Wouldn't call it loyalty but an obsession. These fans speak as if they are in the know. Thus trend in particular was performed by others yet they never experienced any scrutiny. Funny thing is they are ignorant on Selena's feelings or thoughts as always re-writing her narrative. Which she dislikes has publicly stated so.
She didn't just "mock her online" though, Selena has been the target of this girl's hateful behavior for YEARS, even in "real life" settings. Whatever is happening now are just the consecuences to hailey's bad deeds; also there's many other instances, not related to Selena that show Hailey is not the sweet girl she pretends to be:
*Being disrespectful to servers, employes and fans
*Bully allegations from her ex school peers, etc.
Nah, sorry NBC you won't get me to pity this wolf in good-christian-girl's clothing, bye.
Hailey need to stop
Если они упложены искусственно, то у них нет права на жизнь. Они мирозданию НЕ НУЖНЫ
1) Hailey wasn't targeted just bc she's married to Justin. She's thrown some shady content out there "clearly" directed at Selena.
2) the fans started off trying to stand up for selena and call out the "mean girl" but now have become a bit rabid bc this blew up so hard. Its disconcerting how far this has gone now that there's proverbial blood in the water.
3) now there are Selena fans clapping back at Selena herself for trying to deescalate the situation bc she's defending Hailey.
4) a LOT of this could be eliminated by an apology from Hailey. She HAD been engaging in suspect behavior and shady content towards Selena. Still no actual apology though so the Stan's aren't having it.
I dont agree with all of this bullying a bully thing but I understand why in this case. I DO agree that if ppl put this kind of energy into issues concerning the state of the world, we might get a lot more accomplished.
Hailey playing the victim again no one likes her why do even put her on a news
Selena made a huge misstep in taking responsibility for the violent crowd. She's set a new precedence now.
The amount of delusional ppl defending Selena as if she didn’t have a hand in any of this toxic childish bs is unreal. This goes back to her not ever publicly speaking out in defense of Hailey after she married Justin and got ridiculed on a daily. Justin himself came out once, and once only, to address it and that should’ve been enough but the years have passed and Selena’s mentally unstable fans have continued shading Hailey at every turn while Selena mostly gave veiled indirect comments about spreading love and whatnot. She even posed for pictures with Hailey last year which is kinda weird because they don’t need to be seen together for obvious reasons (one is the ex of the other’s husband). Pretty sure Selena sought out Hailey for that pic too cuz Hailey doesn’t benefit from that but Selena gets to be seen as the bigger and kinder person. Only when Hailey received death threats did Selena finally draw the line and that’s too many years too late in my opinion.
