Justin Bieber Played The Most Predictable April Fool’s Joke On His Fans Yesterday
And it was kind of insensitive..
Justin Bieber – the absolute trickster – fooled his fans into thinking Hailey Baldwin was pregnant yesterday.
The singer decided to get involved with April Fool’s Day by posting a picture of a sonogram with no caption.
Most people figured out right away that it was an April Fool’s joke because (1) who announces a pregnancy on April 1st? and (2) the baby in the picture is massive and looks to be full term and (3) the date on the sonogram is February 2nd.
His wife, Hailey Baldwin, didn’t even seem to be in on the joke, commenting “very funny…”.
The couple then decided to take the joke to the next level by posting a photo of Hailey in a doctor’s office with her belly exposed. He captioned it: “If U thought it was April fools.”
To put an end to the bizarre saga, Justin posted this Instagram to confirm that the whole thing was a joke.
His mam was delighted, apparently, as she left a comment saying “Ya well it better be [a joke]”.
Although it was clearly a prank, joking about pregnancy can be seen as insensitive towards people who struggle with fertility. Some people in JB’s comments picked up on this and scolded him for the joke.
“I’m all for today’s jokes but baby and pregnancy ones aren’t funny and can be insensitive to some,” one person wrote.
“Pregnancy jokes can be really insensitive, gotta be careful when you have a big platform,” said another.
Perhaps the Biebz might need to take a little social media detox..
