Hailey Baldwin Refuses to Put Up With the Harsh Way Fans Are Treating Justin Beiber

It’s no secret that pop star Justin Bieber has not had such an easy life. Although he became an international icon at a young age and has sold out shows all over the world, there always seems to be people online who will belittle everything he does.

Recently, Bieber’s wife, model Hailey Baldwin, put her foot down and refused to allow negative netizens to get to her husband. Read on below to find out what happened and why Baldwin is not putting up with Bieber’s haters any longer.

Justin Bieber recently revealed that he is suffering from Lyme disease

Earlier this month, Bieber took to Instagram to make a confession to his followers. After TMZ published an article about Bieber being diagnosed with Lyme disease, the singer confirmed this information to his fan.

“While a lot of people kept saying Justin Bieber looks like shit, on meth etc. they failed to realize I’ve been recently diagnosed with Lyme disease, not only that but had a serious case of chronic mono which affected my, skin, brain function, energy, and overall health,” Bieber wrote. “These things will be explained further in a docu series I’m putting on YouTube shortly.. you can learn all that I’ve been battling and OVERCOMING!! It’s been a rough couple years but getting the right treatment that will help treat this so far incurable disease and I will be back and better than ever NO CAP.”

According to the CDC, a person can get Lyme disease if they get bitten by a black-legged tick that has been infected with certain disease-causing bacteria. The disease is known to infect parts of the body such as the heart, joints, and nervous system. There is no known cure for Lyme disease, but it can be treated in different ways.

Aside from Bieber, several celebrities have been open about living with Lyme disease. For example, Yolanda Hadid and two of her children battle with Lyme disease every day. Meanwhile, Avril Lavigne has also shared that she was diagnosed with it in 2014 and that the disease left her stuck “in bed for f—ing two years.”

While Bieber did receive a lot of support from fans who wish him well, some people decided to make fun of Bieber and downplay the seriousness of his condition. A browse through internet comment sections online shows messages about Bieber faking his diagnosis to make an excuse for his appearance. There are also ignorant claims about Baldwin and the Hadid sisters giving Bieber Lyme disease and chronic mono.

Hailey Baldwin immediately stood up for Justin Bieber

Instead of sitting by and letting Bieber be affected by the mean comments, Baldwin did not hesitate to defend her husband. Taking to Twitter, she wrote a few messages to all the ignorant people who were making fun of Bieber.

“For those who are trying to downplay the severity of Lyme disease,” Baldwin wrote. “Please do your research and listen to the stories of people who have suffered with it for years. Making fun of and belittling a disease you don’t understand is never the way, all it takes is educating yourself.”

She, then, went on to credit the Hadid family for helping her and Bieber through this journey. Baldwin continued: “I wanna say a huge thank you to @YolandaHadid and @bellahadid and @GiGiHadid for bringing me so much clarity and information on Lyme disease and for helping answer my questions about course of action, symptoms etc. Love you 3 amazing women! and sending so much love to @AvrilLavigne thank you for all you do to educate people about Lyme. You’re amazing.”
