Justin Bieber Responds to Backlash Over April Fools' Fake Pregnancy Announcement

"There's always gonna be people offended, there's also people who don't take jokes very well, I am a prankster and it was APRIL FOOLS", he began in a lengthy note shared to Instagram. Bieber posted a photo of another ultrasound photo but this time there was a puppy photoshopped in the image.

Justin Bieber also stole the limelight on April 1, 2019 when he tried to full his fans by sharing pictures related to Hailey's pregnancy on the occasion of April Fool's Day.

He posted a third pregnancy photo that showed another ultrasound with a photo of a notable Instagram dog fromt he Instagram account "A Dog Named Gary".

Bieber followed up with another Instagram post for doubtful followers with an extremely staged-looking photo of Hailey at a doctor's office.

Naturally, many thought this was nothing more an April Fools Joke, considering he posted it on April 1.

Hailey nearly immediately threw water on the story, commenting to her husband, "Very amusing..."

Sonya Frazier, a licensed mental health counselor based in Tampa, Florida, told ABC News that it's important to "be mindful of the implications" of jokes and pranks on April Fools' Day. The photo got exceptional traction with people congratulating the two on the expected birth of their child.

Thankfully, not every celeb who makes a fake pregnancy announcement cries snowflake when people get upset over it.

Another added: "I hope you never have to feel the heartbreak that comes with sitting on the bathroom floor staring at a negative pregnancy test over and over again". He knows that he has to get things figured out so that he can be the dad he wants to be.

"Joking about Hailey being pregnant can really hurt. But I will apologize anyway and take responsibility and say sorry to people who were offended", read an excerpt from his post. Some might have laughed but some were offended.

The Sorry singer shared a picture of a sonogram on social media on Monday, and after fans accused him of pulling a prank he shared snaps of model Hailey cradling her stomach while surrounded by medical professionals and wrote: "If U thought it was April Fools".
