"Mean Girl:" Drama with Hailey Beiber, Selena Gomez, and Kylie Jenner
The famous trio that everyone knows about. Hailey Beiber, Selena Gomez and Kylie Jenner. There has been something going on between these celebrities that has been brought up in many interviews and articles.
There was some drama with Hailey and Selena before, involving Justin Bieber and how they had both been in a relationship with him previously. Even though there had been some tension, they both seemed to have made up, until now.
Everything started with a picture taken by a paparazzi body shaming Selena. A little while after that, Hailey Bieber, Kendall Jenner and Justine Skye posted a video lip-syncing to an audio that said, "I'm not saying she deserves it, but I'm saying God's timing is always right." There were comments from Bieber, saying that she didn’t do anything towards Selena and was just having fun while Selena said "It's okay! I don't let these things get me down! Be nice to everyone!". Hailey deleted the video, but nothing on the internet is permanently gone and the footage has resurfaced multiple times.
This caused a lot of questions from not just the fans. TikToker Rivet Soro posted a video reacting to Hailey’s lip-syncing video questioning whether it was just out of innocence or if they were really trying to start something.
The next week, Selena Gomez was the most followed woman on TikTok with 383 million followers, right above Kylie Jenner, with 380 million.
Selena posted a few videos on TikTok talking about how she accidentally laminated her brows too much and Kyley created a post on her Instagram with two pictures, one of her face and a text covering her brows that read, "This was an accident?????" while the second photo was of her and Hailey on a facetime call zoomed in on their eyebrows. Fans once again made it a huge deal and were saying that it was not just a coincidence anymore, ignoring Gomez and Kylie’s denial.
Selena’s fans were getting angry at her for keeping calm during the situation and not fighting back. That Thursday, Gomez commented on an old video of Hailey sticking out her tongue in spite of Taylor Swift's album appeared on the screen, "So sorry, my best friend is and continues to be one of the best in the game," she had said, defending her.
To ‘take action’ fans are declaring their alliances by following and unfollowing the three stars. "Just because of this I went and followed Selena on IG even though I never go on there," a commenter wrote.
In an Instagram live, Selena expressed how she felt with the whole situation and said she needed a break from all social media and that she was “too old” for this kind of thing.
