Bieber quits Instagram after after fans got hostile over a picture of him and Richie together in Japan. Bieber tweets:
I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate this is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like.
Gomez responds in the comments:
If you can’t handle the hate then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol – it should be special between you two only. Don’t be mad at your fans. They love you. They were there for you before anyone.
Bieber and Gomez then exchange tweets about them cheating on each other. Bieber then makes his Instagram private, before deleting it entirely.
Instagram clarifies its no nipple policy.
We know that there are times when people might want to share nude images that are artistic or creative in nature, but for a variety of reasons, we don’t allow nudity on Instagram. This includes photos, videos, and some digitally-created content that show sexual intercourse, genitals, and close-ups of fully-nude buttocks. It also includes some photos of female nipples, but photos of post-mastectomy scarring and women actively breastfeeding are allowed. Nudity in photos of paintings and sculptures is OK, too.
Bieber loses 3.5 million followers as Instagram deletes all fake accounts in a move being dubbed “Instagram Rapture”. Instagram itself loses more than 18.8 million followers, almost 30% of its total, in the purge.
