People Are Not Happy about Justin Bieber’s Pregnancy Prank

There are some things people don’t like being joked about, especially not on April Fool’s Day. So when Justin Bieber posted a series of photos on his Instagram to trick his followers during the holiday, not everyone was impressed.

It began with Justin posting a sonogram without a caption, which was followed by a photo of his wife Hailey Bieber at the doctor’s office with her hands on her exposed stomach. This led people to believe that Hailey was pregnant and the two were finally expecting their first child. Until that is, Justin posted a photoshopped sonogram with a puppy instead of a baby, with the caption “Wait omg is that a,,, APRIL FOOLS.”

The singer quickly came under fire for the prank by people who claimed it was insensitive to those with fertility issues.

Others came to Justin’s defense, saying that the backlash he received was a bit too much.

Since then, Justin has apologized through Instagram for his joke, saying “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,” he said. “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.”

Although he thinks it was a harmless joke, he said he understands that it’s not always the case for the person who is at the butt of the joke. “You sometimes just don’t know what will hurt someone’s feelings,” he continued. “Some might have laughed but some were offended .. I think With pranks u sometimes have to roll that dice. ”
