Selena Gomez, the popular American actress-singer, and Hailey Bieber, the model-turned-social media star, were having an online feud for quite a while now. One thing led to another and eventually, Selena and Hailey, who is now married to the former's ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, were pitted against each other by the netizens, especially their respective fans. This led to a massive social media outbreak, and the socialite was brutally attacked online over the past few weeks, by the actress-singer's fans and netizens for her remarks.

For the unversed, Selena Gomez came forward against the social media bullying against Hailey Bieber, with an Instagram post recently. After Selena extended the olive branch, Hailey took to her official Instagram handle and thanked the actress-singer for defending her and speaking out during these 'very tough' times. "I want to thank Selena for speaking out, as her and I have been discussing the last few weeks about how to move past this ongoing narrative between her and I," wrote Hailey Bieber on her Instagram story.

"The last few weeks have been very hard for everyone involved and millions of people are seeing so much hate around this, which is extremely harmful. While social media is an incredible way to connect and build community, moments like this only create extreme division instead of bringing people together.  Things can always be taken out of context or constructed differently from what they were intended," she added.
