Hailey Bieber vs Selena Gomez: The social media banter you need to know
When Selena and Hailey hugged and took pictures together in October 2022 at the Academy Museum Gala, they almost wholly crashed the internet. It was clear that they were on excellent terms with each other. According to reports, Selena and Hailey got along great at the Academy Museum Gala. They both moved on and are content with their current circumstances. They wished to demonstrate to the public that they had no more extended hostility or animosity.
But then, in February 2023, Selena;s fans noticed that Kylie and Hailey threw shade at her in later Instagram Stories about her eyebrows. This happened when Selena posted a series of TikToks and Instagram Stories where she used the Bella Hadid filter and gave Bella some public support and love. She later reveals on the platform that she over-laminated her brows.
Fans noticed that Hailey and Kylie posted Instagram Stories simultaneously, showing off their eyebrows.
Well, this doesn't end here. On 28 February 2023, Fans accused Hailey of throwing shade again when Hailey posted an Instagram story featuring "Calm Down", but the version without Selena.
Some fans suspect Hailey took a subtle jab at Selena again by sharing an Instagram Story where Hailey used audio from Rema's song "Calm Down" without Selena's audio from the remix. It's worth noting that the story was a repost, and Hailey may not have chosen the song herself.
Since then, several other instances of social media banter between the two women have occurred. Overall, while there have been some social media interactions between Hailey Bieber and Selena Gomez in the past, it's worth noting that both women have denied any direct or intentional targeting of each other.
Well, as the hatred against Hailey was increasing and it reached to a point where fans gave death threats, she decided to ask for help and contacted Selena. After which, Selena took to her Instagram story to address the issue. Selena wrote, "Hailey Bieber reached out to me and let me know that she has been receiving death threats and such hateful negativity. This isn't what I stand for. No one should have to experience hate or bullying. I've always advocated for kindness and really want this all to stop."
To which Hailey replied thanking Selena, "I want to thank Selena for speaking out, as her and I have been discussing the last few weeks how to move past this ongoing narrative between her and I. The last few weeks have been very hard for everyone involved and millions of people are seeing so much hate around this which is extremely harmful. While social media is an incredible way to connect and build community, moments like this only create extreme division instead of bringing people together."
She further wrote, "Things can always be taken out of context or construed differently than they were intended. We all need to be more thoughtful about what we post and what we say, including myself. In the end, I believe love will always be bigger than hate and negativity, and there is always an opportunity to meet each other with more empathy and compassion."
Hailey additionally followed Selena on Instagram too and reciprocated the peace display.
For the ones living under a rock, the hullabaoo over two of the most popular people in the entertainment industry boils down to a paramount reason, Hailey Bieber, a model, is married to singing sensation Justin Bieber for the past five years. However, in the early years, Justin and Selena were not only dating each other but were one of the most talked-about, loved and high-profiled couples.
Since them splitting up and even before Justin's marriage, the millions of fans of both parties have been at it with memes, theories and even attempts to get them back together.
