The pop star was clearly trying to tap into the spirit of April Fools’ Day, but his jokes sparked criticism from followers who were quick to note that the prank isn’t exactly hilarious to people struggling to become parents.
“PREGNANCY IS NOT A JOKE! There are MILLIONS of couples who are struggling with infertility and would do anything to have a child,” one person wrote on social media.
“Of course justin bieber will think a pregnancy announcement would be funny on April fools. esp so when 1 in 7 women have had a miscarriage. not to mention those suffering from infertility,” another Twitter user said.
“I’ve never been mad at @justinbieber but today I’m disappointed in him for posting a fake pregnancy announcement,” another fan wrote. “Honestly, not a funny joke when millions of women are struggling with infertility and other issues of the sort. Sad, @justinbieber.”
