Sofia Richie finally seems to have finally replied amidst the Instagram war raging between Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez on Tuesday. In the tweet Richie requested the hate game be stopped and called for love.
“#purposetour is still on… The music is still coming.. Love who you want… Stop the damn hate… And love each other!!” said the tweet that appeared to be from Richie.
It was not immediately clear if it was actually Richie, 17, since the account was not verified. However, the post looked genuine and her Instagram account is verified, though she said on Snapchat that she doesn’t have a Twitter account.
The Hollywood Life reported that although the tweet did not mention Gomez, Richie certainly had the Bieber-Gomez feud on her mind when she wrote the tweet and it was quite evident in the phrase, “stop the hate.”
However, the drama started from her, even though she was not directly involved. Bieber’s fans started spewing hatred at Richie after he posted pictures of themselves on Instagram. Bieber decided to stand by Richie and threatened to turn his account private if Beliebers do not stop the hatred. Gomez came to the fans’ rescue and advised Bieber not to get mad at them. And this started the war which even caused the former couple to accuse each other of cheating on them.
The drama took a new turn after Justin Bieber deleted his Instagram account following the heated Instagram exchange with his former girlfriend. Gomez softened her stance and apologised saying, “What I said was selfish and pointless.” The message written in white against a black background came about late Monday night on Snapchat, the Mail Online reported.
Justin Bieber changed his account to private on Monday, a while before deleting it entirely. Looks like Gomez have surely rubbed her ex-flame the wrong way.
“In the moment you went privat (sic) you lost many fans…” wrote one fan, moments after Bieber changed the account to private.
