Justin Bieber’s April Fools Day prank seriously pissed off a lot of people

We were so confused.

So last night, Justin Bieber sent the internet into a frenzy.

He posted a picture on instagram of an ultrasound scan, leading some to believe that he and his wife were expecting.

However, considering the day that was in it (April 1st), we all just put it down as a joke.

But Justin really went for it, and even posted another batch of pictures.

In these, it looked like his wife, Hailey, was pregnant, and being attended to by a nurse.

He captioned the pictures of his wife: “If U thought it was April fools.”

Well, we did. But then we doubted ourselves.

Then FINALLY, Justin posted an updated version of the original ultrasound, with a dog photoshopped into it.

“Wait omg is that an…  APRIL FOOLS,” he wrote.

Oh you got us good.

However, Bieber’s little prank didn’t really sit well with many, including his lovely wife.

On the first image of the ultrasound, Hailey commented: “Very funny…” and we sure did sense the sarcastic tone.

But some fans were more deeply affected by the prank.

One wrote:

“You’re literally such a loser for doing this. I hope you and your wife never have to experience what infertility or the loss of a pregnancy feels like because I guarantee this would no longer be ‘funny’ to you.”

Another said:

“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.”

“Do you know there are women out there who listen to your music who have lost babies? Who are struggling to get pregnant? Who cry every damn time they see a pregnancy announcement that isn’t their own because the only thing they want more in the world is to be a mother? Yet here you are, pretending it’s all a joke.” wrote another disgruntled fan.

What do you think?

Was this a harmless prank, or thoughtless?
