Hailey Bieber has gotten accustomed to fans putting their noses in her business with husband Justin, but she admits that she’s getting too tired of them overstepping their boundaries.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, she opens up about how hardcore celebrity fans tend to be toxic and terrifying on Instagram. “The problem […] is kids become possessive over people and feel like if they think they’re hurt, they feel hurt for them and they’re hurt too, or whatever it is,” she said. “They just think they know these people who are famous because their life is so exposed. And that’s what gets me, I think, the most frustrated.”
Ever since their engagement, fans of Justin have constantly acted as vigilantes, sounding alarms over things they don’t know the full story about just based on news articles and what they see on photos. Most recently, Justin had to defend her from a hater who claimed that Hailey was a “hoe” who sleeps around with celebrities for fame.
Hailey shared, “I’m like, you actually don’t know me. You don’t know him. […] You don’t know these people for real. What’s really weird to me is they create scenarios in their head of what they think is happening or what they think should happen, and I’m just like, ‘This is just so dumb. It’s so dumb’.”
When asked about how she handles the negativity and scrutiny, Hailey shared that she’s gotten to that point where she avoids reading the comments section altogether. “You still care to a certain extent. You really have to train your brain to be like, ‘Okay, why do I even care? I don’t know these people, they don’t know me, they’re not a part of my life or my relationship.’ People can just be mean, and I feel like if you don’t want it to get to you, then don’t read it and allow it to affect your soul.”
She also said that she would sometimes delete her Instagram so she could get away from it all for a little while. “Sometimes I delete Instagram for a couple days at a time, which is really nice. I’ve done that when I’ve felt like I really couldn’t handle what people were saying or it was like what I was looking at was unavoidable.”
