She’s under fire again. Justin Bieber’s wife, Hailey Baldwin, has been accused of being racist by one of the pop star’s fans and now people are drawing their attention to her previous tweets. The model previously faced backlash for some of the controversial messages she posted on social media, including one addressed to foreigners.
The drama started when one fan called out Justin, 25, on March 26, claiming that he married Hailey, 22, to get back at his ex, Selena Gomez. His commenter also implied that Hailey was racist. So is there any truth to these wild claims? Here’s where people started investigating.
Back in January 2012, the model tweeted, “Shut up before I smack you back to your own country” and it still hasn’t been deleted. In January 2013, Hailey posted another questionable message. “Oh are you so tired of it? Well lemme remind u … this is a FREE country … AMERICA BABY,” it read.
In November 2013, Hailey faced criticism yet again for posting a tweet that read, “To those foreigners who don’t celebrate thanksgiving so sorry your country didn’t have Pilgrims and Indians to start such a sick holiday.” People were calling her out in the comment section as recently as January 2019, claiming she came across as racist and should “delete this” post.
Even though Hailey posted these messages years ago, they popped up again when one of Justin’s fans went on a heated rant about the model on Instagram.
“You are NOT in love with Hailey! You only married her to get back at [Selena Gomez] plus Hailey sleeps with men like @shawnmendes for fame and she’s a racist @wflig,” the commenter wrote.
“Why would I dedicate my whole life to someone in marriage to get back to my ex? Anyone who believes this is mean spirited or 10 years old or younger because a logical person doesn’t talk or think this way. You should be ashamed of yourself,” Justin wrote in response. “I absolutely love and loved Selena, she will always hold a place in my heart, but I am head over [heels] in love with my wife and she is absolutely the best thing that has ever happened to me, period.”
In Touch has reached out to Hailey’s rep, but did not hear back by the time of publication.
