Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez may be back together, but the former's fans are anything but united at the moment.
The hashtag “#ignorejustinproject” cropped up on Twitter last night, with a number of Bieber’s followers outraged over his reconciliation with Gomez.
A day after video surfaced of Justin and Selena on a date, one Twitter user wrote “if justin can ignore us bc of Selena we can ignore him,” while another referred to the artist as “rude.”
The beef seems to stem from Bieber spending less time interacting with fans on social media over the past week and more time hanging out with Gomez.
Because, you know, how dare the star have a real life outside his computer!
Defenders have pointed out that any anti-Bieber sentiment is “immature,” “ignorant,” and “hurtful,” while “supportjustinproject” and “ilovejustinproject” soon started to trend on Sunday in response to the haters.
It's a very sensitive time for Justin Bieber fans, that's for sure.
Bieber and Gomez (sort of) went public with their rekindled relationship about a week ago, as video surfaced of the pair partying at a mutual friend's birthday party.
Since then, Selena has penned a romantic poem for Justin and a picture has surfaced of Bieber and Gomez cuddling in the studio.
We can't tell folks how to feel, of course, but it must be asked:
If you're a true Justin Bieber supporter, don't you want him to be happy?
