But Beliebers don’t seem too happy with this new relationship — according to Bieber’s latest Instagram post, his fans have been “mean” to his 17-year-old companion, criticizing her for her looks and posting other nasty comments on each photo.

Bieber retaliated against his 77.6 million Instagram followers by posting another photo of the two and threatening to make his account private.”I’m gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don’t stop the hate this is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn’t be so mean to people that I like,” the caption reads.

Who knew the Biebs was such a loyal guy? To all Beliebers: It’s not too late to say “sorry” and keep his Instagram public!
