After last week’s drama, a new fight has erupted on social media over Selena Gomez and Hailey Bieber. Celebrities throwing shade at each other is nothing new, but the modern world has put it in the spotlight, with fans teaming up on each side. For the Wizard of Waverly Place actress, the rivals may be new, but the topic remains the same.
Selena Gomez recently took to TikTok posting two back-to-back comments, asking her fans to be kind to everyone following the consistent drama. She began by thanking her fans, followed by revealing how she has been having a tough time but hopes for the best for everyone. Popbase forwarded these on their Twitter, which erupted into a war of words between the fans.
The real drama began after Justin Bieber’s marriage to Hailey Bieber, and her increased closeness to fellow models. It all began with a video by the model and Kendal Jenner, which fans of Gomez took as a mockery. Back then, the signer confirmed the mockery by thanking fans for taking her side, while Bieber claimed that the video was not meant to throw shade at anyone.

Fans play the blame game after Selena Gomez posts, following the drama with Hailey Bieber
Hailey Bieber and Selena Gomez tried to make peace initially by posting photos together. But peace was never an option. Selenators blamed Kylie Jenner and Bieber for bullying Gomez by mocking her eyebrow mess up, although they claim it was a video to promote makeup products.

Then there are those calling Gomez out for playing the victim after igniting such issues. Apparently, Bella Hadid was also dragged into this fight for being Bieber’s friend. She deleted a photo after Gomez commented on it and used the model’s filter before.
im confused how people say 'she gotta leave hailey and justine alone blah blah blah' as if hailey & kylie didn't didn't start the issue lol

“please be kinder and consider others mental health” why doesn’t she take her own advice bc she considered no one when commenting consecutively on 7 different tiktoks including hate accounts on another woman & getting 4 other women dragged too, and family members who were minors

Biggest manipulator and her fans just eat it up

One commentator called her manipulative, while others called her sweet for defending someone who bullied her. Some also questioned the ‘Baby’ singer’s silence over it all. The entertainer had planned to take a break from social media, but that likely didn’t pan out. Meanwhile, Hailey Bieber has not commented on the issue ever since.
