Justin Bieber deletes Instagram account

Justin Bieber has kept to his word and vanished from Instagram overnight.

Earlier this week, the popstar threatened he would make his account private if his fans continued to post nasty comments about his new gal pal Sofia Richie. Richie is a 17-year-old model and the daughter of singer/songwriter Lionel Richie.

“I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate,” Bieber wrote in a caption of a black and white photo of himself and Richie. “This is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like.”


Bieber’s fans obviously continued to throw shade at Riche so overnight Bieber removed his account from the social media site. Fans wanting to see his snaps are now greeted with a message that reads: “Sorry, this page isn’t available. The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed. Go back to Instagram.”
