What really happened in the Selena Gomez video? Why was she accused of criticizing Hailey Bieber for a variety of reasons??
Hailey Bieber’s first video showed her going through her daily beauty regimen before showing how she applied a combination of thick lip gloss and lipstick during her stay in Chicago.
Meanwhile, Selena Gomez posted the now controversial video a few hours later, in which many social media users berated her for allegedly making fun of Bieber. In the video, Gomez appeared to roll her eyes frequently, which many fans assumed was on purpose.
Following the charges, the Los Angeles resident issued an immediate apology to her fans. “That’s why I believe in taking care of your mental health,” she added in the comments section. Guys, I have no idea what I did, but I’m so sorry. No malice intended. Soon, I will remove it.”
While the offending comments were removed, they were quickly captured by social media users and shared on Twitter. Selena Gomez later disabled all comments on the video, which has now been viewed more than 4.1 million times. By comparison, Hailey Bieber’s original video has 3.5 million views in the first half and over 1.8 million views in the second half.

Numerous supporters came out in support of Gómez following the accusations. A follow-up video of the artist on her TikTok garnered comments from her followers like Fizzy (backtofizzy), who wrote “Don’t apologize or delete anything queen.”
Stop associating Selena Gomez with Hailey and Justin and vice versa, one user said.
STOP ASSOCIATING SELENA GOMEZ WITH HAILEY AND JUSTIN AND VICEVERSA.

Last month, Hailey Bieber requested that people stop trolling her in the comments section, and Gomez received abuse as a result. The model said in a video streamed on TikTok on April 12:
“…this is for you guys in my comments every time I post…I mind my own business. I do nothing, I say nothing. Leave me alone please. I really beg you. That is my only request. Be miserable somewhere else please.
This video was thought to be aimed at Selena Gomez’s millions of fans, who constantly teased Hailey about her relationship with Justin Bieber, who had previously dated Gomez.
Selena Gomez doesn’t even do anything to anyone. She posts her cute little TikToks and just minds her own business. No one in her right mind was worried about Hailey. EVERYONE IS JUST OUT OF WORK pic.twitter.com/oddA5maEOC
