Justin Bieber has taken to Instagram to apologise for his highly insensitive April Fools day joke yesterday.
The singer and his wife, Hailey Bieber, tricked fans into thinking they were expecting a baby. When it was revealed as a joke, many fans reminded Bieber how pregnancy is no joke, especially to the large amount of people unable to conceive.
"There’s always gonna be people offended, there’s also people who don’t take jokes very well, I am a prankster and it was APRIL FOOLS," Justin wrote.
"I didn’t at all mean to be insensitive to people who can’t have children. A lot of people I know, their first go to prank on April fools is telling their parents they are pregnant to get a big reaction. But I will apologize anyway and take responsibility and say sorry to people who were offended.
"I truly don’t want anyone to be hurt by a prank.. it’s like when I shoved cake in my little sisters face for her birthday expecting her to laugh but she cried.
"You sometimes just don’t know what will hurt someone’s feelings not to compare pregnancy with cake in the face but it’s just to paint the picture of not knowing what will offend. Some might have laughed but some were offended..
Justin Bieber has officially trolled us all! He and wife Hailey Bieber set up the whole 'pregnancy' post as an April Fools joke.
Justin posted a new ultrasound photo with a dog in the middle of it. He wrote, "Wait omg is that a,,, APRIL FOOLS"
NGL, pregnancy jokes like this are incredibly out-dated and insensitive. There are a lot of people in the world who cannot conceive children who would find offence in a joke like this.
We expect a lot of backlash to follow.
