Look: Selena Gomez defends Hailey Bieber after death threats, ‘hateful negativity’ – UPI.com
March 24 (UPI) — Selena Gomez is showing her support for Hailey Bieber amid reported death threats and “hateful negativity.”
The 30-year-old singer and actress spoke out Friday on Instagram Stories after Bieber, 26, reached out to her about the hate she’s receiving online.
“Hailey Bieber reached out to me and let me know that she has been receiving death threats and such hateful negativity,” Gomez wrote.
“This isn’t what I stand for. No one should have to experience hate or bullying,” she said. “I’ve always advocated for kindness and really want this all to stop.”

Gomez’s fans have recently clashed with fans of Bieber, a model and the wife of Gomez’s ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, and Kylie Jenner, a television personality and beauty mogul.
In February, Gomez shared a clip on Instagram Stories where she said she “accidentally laminated” her eyebrows too much. Jenner posted a selfie the same day where she wrote “this was an accident???” over her brows.
In addition, Jenner posted a screenshot of herself and Bieber with a closeup of their eyebrows.
Many social media users interpreted Jenner’s posts as poking fun at Gomez, which Jenner denied Feb. 22 on TikTok.
“this is reaching. no shade towards selena ever and i didn’t see her eyebrow posts! u guys are making something out of nothing. this is silly,” Jenner wrote.
Gomez and Bieber previously shut down feud rumors by posing for a photo together at the Academy Museum Gala in October 2022.
