Justin Bieber isn’t exactly well known for his impulse control and now the surly singer has deleted his Instagram account along with the millions of fans who used to watch his every move.
The reason? Justin’s alleged new girlfriend, Sofia Richie, was bearing the brunt of an online hate campaign from green-eyed Beliebers. Not only that, but Selena Gomez also personally stepped in to offer her two cents and they weren’t exactly flattering to her Canadian ex.
After Selena had straight up accused Justin of passing his peen around when they were very much an item, some sources are reporting that Bieber accused Gomez of being far from chaste herself.
According to E! Online, Bieber pointed the finger at his former flame and accused her of getting it on with none other than One Direction’s Zayn Malik, but the so called “proof” looks less than convincing.
DID JUSTIN JUST SAY SELENA CHEATED ON HIM WITH ZAYN

Although the tell-tale blurry shadow here reeks of photoshop, the feud itself was enough to shunt Bieber off of Instagram for the time being.
The 22-year-old clearly wasn’t making idle threats when he promised he would delete his account to stop Sofia being bullied, but it looks like his plan might have back fired because Richie herself isn’t heard to hunt down on social media.
Whereas the majority of the snake emojis and foul comments were landing on Bieber’s account, now poor 17-year-old Sofia’s account is a veritable vivarium of treacherous reptiles.
It’s not uncommon for a celeb to delete all traces of their exs Instagram account after a relationship breakdown, but maybe Bieber is starting a trend of sacrificing your internet presence for love. So romantic!
