Bieber's April Fools' Prank Didn't Make Anyone Laugh, He's Actually Receiving Backlash For It

Is Baldwin actually pregnant?!


Oh, the sweet, childish activity of pulling a prank — it can go two ways: either people find it hilarious or people take it personally.

Bieber has been a pop-icon known for his tendencies to get himself in so many scandals. Despite the backlash that Bieber has received throughout his career, this A-list celebrity has not stopped being himself and continues to evoke humor through his social media platforms.

Recently, on April Fools' Day, Bieber decided to join everybody in on the fun and posted a picture claiming that his wife, Hailey Baldwin, known as Hailey Bieber, was pregnant.

He posted the image of Baldwin seemingly receiving a check-up with the following caption, "If U thought it was April fools," to make things seem realistic to the public eye.

Immediate responses overloaded Bieber's feed from Instagram followers congratulating him over the pregnancy announcement — other responses included emojis that insinuate suspicion or disbelief.

Soon after, Bieber reveals that the whole post was a simple joke with an image of a dog in an ultrasound captioned, "Wait omg is that a,,,APRIL FOOLS."

Even though Bieber, and other celebrities like David Beckham, found the whole prank completely hilarious, others did not take it as a laughing matter.

Backlash rose over the prank being extremely insulting and damaging because it was claimed to target people who are struggling with infertility or who have lost children. Comments, such as the ones seen below, actually insulted Bieber directly stating that he was a "piece of sh*t" for making a prank like that.

Bieber nonetheless quickly responded with another image containing an apology, in which he takes full responsibility for the whole chaos and says that he did not recognize the severity of it all.

But, don't worry Bieber we all forgive you!

Let's just take this as a lesson that even celebrities are not perfect — everyone makes mistakes. Also, for those who reacted with hate towards Bieber, remember that at the end, hate is really not going to fix anything.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.
