Justin Bieber received some heat on social media right after talking about being blessed for the privilege he has during an Instagram Live, but the Bielebers came to his defense in a BIG way after they claim some outlets twisted his words. What’s up? Happy Monday everyone. It’s Sussan Mourad here with Clevver News bringing you all the news updates from my in home Clevver studio, and we’ve got to get right into all this Justin Bieber drama. There’s been a lot of back and forth on Twitter, cancellations, and fans are really torn. We’re going to break it all down for you. But first, go ahead and subscribe to Clevver News if you haven’t already so you never miss out on any breaking news updates. Alright so here’s what went down. Justin Bieber and his wife Hailey have been going live a lot on Instagram.
like pretty much every other celeb right now. They’ve been talking to other stars and even some lucky fans. And late last week Justin and Hailey went live with none other than Kendall Jenner. They talked about how Kendall and Hailey became friends and Kendall revealed how happy she was when Justin and Hailey got married. She even said she cried at their wedding. But at one point when Kendall was talking about how much she loves her house, Justin chimed in and brought up “how blessed” they are and how many people aren’t as lucky as them, especially during this difficult time. But that wasn’t all he said, Justin continued and this is where some people started to get bothered by Justin’s sentiment. Many fans were disappointed with what Justin said, given just how bad some people are struggling right now while they are going live from their multi-million dollar mansions. And while Justin may have come off insensitive to some, it’s important to note that at the end of his statement, he did try to clarify what he was saying by bringing it back to the right place and sent his love and support to anyone who is going through a tough time. Before we get into everyone else’s reactions, what are your initial thoughts?
Do you think Justin was being insensitive? Or do you think he was trying to lend out his support and love and people took it the wrong way? Let me know down in the comment section and get that conversation started down below. Alright, so what were people saying about this… One person Tweeted saying quote, “Thank god they’re “acknowledging” us. SO GRATEFUL. Suddenly my debts are wiped clear and im no longer unemployed” Another wrote quote, “I cannot take it anymore with celebs and influencers making these comments. Maybe just be a human — you are not an expert. Shut up and bake banana bread and stay home.” Another said quote, “Whew hey @justinbieber @haileybieber @KendallJenner
Maybe try working a 9-5? Then come back with that hard work train of thought…….” And another person wrote quote, “So they think they have more than other people because they worked harder? She was born rich. He has worked hard but he had lucky breaks and I guarantee there are minimum wage employees who work a hell of a lot harder just to stay afloat and live paycheck to paycheck. Oblivious.” And there were thousands and thousands more tweets like that. People were clearly hurt by Justin’s comments during this already really challenging time. But interestingly enough, many fans actually came to Justin’s defense after iHeartRadio posted, then deleted an article about this Instagram Live. Other outlets had reported on it too, but fans were upset that they believed iHeart took what Justin said out of context and really dragged him with the title. Obviously before they deleted the article fans had a chance to screenshot it. It said quote, “Justin Bieber Dragged For Gloating About Being Rich Amid Lockdown.” And the Beliebers took to Twitter to share screenshots of the article and their frustration with this piece.
One person wrote quote, “For the ones wondering what this is about, here is the article. And it is still online.. @iHeartRadio spreading things like this out of context is just disgusting! Shame on you guys! #iHeartRadioIsOverParty” Another mentioned that Justin has also been giving back a lot too and said quote, “They’re mad because he’s acknowledging the privilege he has when he knows what it’s like growing up without money and now he’s using his platform to help those in need? Naw that’s tone deaf on THEIR part but they don’t want to know the truth” Another fan wrote quote, “You should be ashamed of even post that article at first place. Deleting it changes NOTHING. You guys have to apologize for twisting Justin’s words that way @iHeartRadio #iHeartRadioIsOverParty” And another fan pointed out Justin’s humble beginnings and wrote quote, “Yeah Justin is SOOO privileged that he lived in a small apartment with his mom! so sick how people can twist his words #iheartradioisoverparty” And the Beliebers were so up in arms that #iHeartRadioIsOverParty was trending on Twitter.
And some people even went as far as finding other times iHeartRadio has wronged other artists like Little Mix. But we’re not here to drag Justin or iHeartRadio, we’re just here bringing you both sides of the story and the facts. You can decide for yourself how you feel about all this and please feel free to share your thoughts down in the comments below. But I think we can all learn a lesson from this that we’ve all heard before… once something is online whether it’s an IG Live or an Article, it’ll live online forever. Even if it’s been deleted or expires. Alright, that’s the tea I’ve got for now, but click right over here if you want to hear about Justin and other celebs who have made big donations during these tough times. I’m Sussan Mourad and I’ll catch you later!
