Justin Bieber Faces Backlash For April Fools Pregnancy Joke

Justin Bieber is undoubtedly one of the most popular global singers and has a huge fan base around the world. Nice try! He then posted a pic of Hailey at the doctor, and ended with another ultrasound image... showing a puppy.

One person wrote: "Justin Bieber April fooled about Hailey being pregnant?"

Justin Bieber has received backlash from fans for pretending that his wife Hailey Bieber was pregnant on April Fools' Day.

Justin posted a picture of an ultrasound on his Instagram account today, leaving it with no caption.

"Wait omg is that a, APRIL FOOLS", he captioned the snap.

This thought was echoed by Liz Wilkes, managing director of My Midwives, as she explained how pregnancy April Fool's gags can be a painful reminder for women who are experiencing fertility issues.

While many believed Hailey was pregnant, there were plenty of people who were sceptical of the announcement.

Darlington (S.C.) Raceway's annual Southern 500 will become the NASCAR playoff opener, with that race scheduled for September 6. Florida's Homestead-Miami Speedway, which has hosted the season finale since 2002, will now host the series on March 22.

The 25-year-old singer was likely not expecting the round of angry replies from people who have had a challenging time getting or staying pregnant, and admitted that "there's always gonna be people offended" as he coined himself a "jokester" while addressing his dated prank. "I think With pranks u sometimes have to roll that dice", he further added.

Justin also teased Hailey for her beauty look, comparing her to JoJo Siwa, who is known for rocking oversized bows. Sure, these posts may be amusing for some people.

Ellen De'Generes commented, 'if you're April Fooling me, so help you'.

Bieber later apologised in another Instagram post, saying he's a "prankster" and he "didn't at all mean to be insensitive to people who can't have children".

Despite Justin and Hailey's attempt to sell the pregnancy photos as their own, Hailey appeared to admit that the posts were a joke when she commented "very amusing." shortly after Justin posted the ultrasound photo. No thought whatsoever of the 1 in 4 women who have miscarried and the 1 in 8 who are infertile and can't have children at all?

Bieber has been surprisingly candid on social media as of late, recently writing about his mental health struggles and the pressure of delivering a new music.
