Justin Bieber April Fools’ Day pregnancy prank Backfires as fans get disgusted of his post. First, Justin Bieber is a Canadian singer-songwriter. After talent manager Scooter Braun discovered his YouTube videos covering songs, he signed him to RBMG in 2008. Justin shared images of a sonogram and wife Hailey Baldwin cradling her stomach. However, he sparked a backlash after joking he is expecting his first child as part of an April Fools’ Day prank.
Rather, Bieber was condemned for the disgusting post which claimed his wife Hailey Baldwin is pregnant. Again, on the photo, he captioned: “If U thought it was April Fools.”
He later confirmed it was a prank with a picture of a dog in the centre of a sonogram.
“Wait omg is that a,,, APRIL FOOLS,” Justin wrote.
Below are some of the comments by fans
First : “These jokes aren’t funny… do you understand how many families have to deal with infertility and loss of pregnancy? Shame on you.”
Another wrote: “Honestly people would die to become parents, I hate the ‘I’m pregnant’ April Fools. Let’s hope you and your wife aren’t infertile so you don’t feel the heartbreak of not being able to carry your own child. Just coming from a place of experience.”
A third posted: “And when I thought I couldn’t hate you more. Congrats on being a piece of s***. Faking a pregnancy announcement is not funny. Some women can’t get pregnant.”
Above all, he was also condemned by The Miscarriage Association who said he should be more sensitive to issues affecting those trying to get pregnant, or those who are dealing with a loss. Spokesperson Ruth Bender Atik had this to say.
“I don’t suppose Justin thought for a moment that it might cause upset. Hopefully, any comments that are made will make him more aware of the sensitivities of pregnancy loss and infertility.”
