The 26-year-old singer has jumped to his wife's defence, after social media users threatened to troll an Instagram Live Hailey was planning with Bare Minerals makeup.
The troll video in question featured a girl saying, "Hailey Baldwin is going to do a Live, right? Where she's talking about herself, 20 questions with... This is the time where they will not be turning off comments, so we need to f***ing bombard that s*** with Jelena and how Selena is better. Go after, please, let's all go after her."
As well as re-sharing the video in question to his Instagram Stories, Justin lashed out at the fan, slamming them for coming for his wife. He wrote in a statement:
"This sad excuse of a human just encouraged people on video to literally go after my wife telling people to say that my previous relationship was better so on and so [forth]... I just wanted to share this so people get an idea of what we face on a day to day.
"As many people as there are that want to spend their time publicly degrading, shaming and trying to humiliate us, we would like to ask those who have it in them to lift us up in prayer. We need prayer and support as we continue to put ourselves out there!
"After watching that I could easily let it steal my joy, but then I think about her life and how miserable she must be to want to spend her life trying to make others feel small. The lesson here is SHE'S THE ONE MISSING OUT... Life is fulfilling when you uplift and add value to people! A life where you want to make others feel small will lave you with no friends and no real JOY."
Hailey added that she wishes "the young woman in that video all the best" and hopes she "finds love, peace and happiness in this life!", finishing, "It has truly gotten to a level of anger and hate that is shockingly unhealthy and sad. [I] would never in a million years wish for someone to be treated this way and I will never condone this kind of hateful behaviour.
"I want only to support, uplift, and encourage other women in this industry and wish them nothing but love and success and I wish for all of my followers and supporters to do the same!!"
Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber dated on and off between 2010 - 2018, with Justin proposing to Hailey Baldwin in July 2018. The pair tied the knot the following October, before having a big wedding day a year later in 2019.
