Here are 5 times Selena Gomez publicly defended Hailey Bieber:

1.In an implicit defense of Hailey, Gomez subsequently asked her followers to be ‘kind’ after the incident.

During an Instagram Live, Gomez said she was “grateful for the response to the song,” but she would “never stand for women tearing other women down,” according to Cosmopolitan.

“Please be kind to everyone,” she advised. “Please be kind; I don’t like it when people are disrespectful or rude to other people, so don’t do it.”

2. Gomez supported Madison Beer in 2020 after she faced criticism for dining with Hailey.

Although Gomez was celebrating the release of her album “Rare” and Hailey and Beer were out with other friends, Elle claimed that Gomez, Hailey, and Beer were all at the same restaurant in Los Angeles one night in January 2020.

Beer denied rumors that he, Hailey, and Gomez had an argument at the eatery that were spread on Twitter, according to Elle. Some of Gomez’s followers started to torment Beer after Gomez unfollowed him on Instagram.

“These rumors are gettin insane. I just had dinner with my friend Hailey of ten years. And that’s it? How is that a crime? I love Selena… Always have. And I would literally never in a million years try to upset her??? This is just mean and unnecessary and nothing happened. It was just a coincidence, you’re bullying me for no reason,” she wrote on Instagram.
