scandal 05/04/2019

Justin Bieber has taken to Instagram to apologise for an April Fool's Day pregnancy joke that did noooooooooooot go over well.

He posted a screenshot of an article that said "Justin Bieber Slammed on Social Media for Fake Pregnancy News," and wrote:

"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. 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 .. I think With pranks u sometimes have to roll that dice. #prankster #dennisthemenace #sorry #truly"

Hmm we guess it's good that he apologised but it does seem a bit...forced...right!?

In case you missed what went down, Justin posted three Instagam posts. The first was a fake sonogram, one was a series of pics of Hailey Bieber at the doctor and the final image owned up to the fact it was a prank.
