Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez's Instagram relationship has previously mainly consisted of misty-eyed throwback snaps and a wall of civilized silence, but not anymore.
After snaps of Justin's rumored new girlfriend, Sofia Richie, led to an influx of negativity — and the now-inevitable snake emojis — from Bieber's so-called fans, the singer himself took to Instagram to defend himself.
After threatening to make his account private in protest to the reptilian rampage he and Sofia were facing from commenters, things seemed to go pretty quiet for a while until Selena allegedly surfaced.
Gomez used her first rumored comment on her former love's Instagram page to slam him for flashing his new relationship around instead of keeping his new flame private and safe from the well-documented wrath of the Beliebers.
Of course, Bieber has never been one to take an insult lying down and he responded by implying that their entire relationship was just a case of Selena using him for attention. Ouch.
For a while, tumbleweeds were blowing across the horizon as the eye of the drams appeared to have passed, but then Selena resurfaced to really plunge the knife in with confirmation Bieber had cheated on her. Even worse, it wasn't just an isolated incident.
As if totally dragging Bieber wasn't enough, Selena also made a pass agg "my fans are better than your fans" comment by pasting up the following Instagram post singing her devotees' praises, just as Justin was forced to tell his rabble off.
The 24-year-old singer had clearly learned something from the fury-fueled typing fingers of #teamBelieber because she wisely turned to comments off to allow her post to remain unsullied.
Although the comments could obviously have been photoshopped by some overzealous fan, the amount of screenshots available from various sources seems to suggest that Selena probably did just reach the end of her rope with her ex.

But, how did the internet react to all this? It seems like #TeamSelena is the undisputed winner, looking at some of the savage responses dished up over the row on social media.
1. Slaying That 2008 Star Power
I'm guessing this was a #tbt that Justin didn't feel like uploading — probably because he was too busy pasting up pics of Selena for those clicks. And, it worked, one of Justin's throwback snaps of him and his former girl in better times is now the most liked image on Insta.
2. Dickin' Around
To be fair, it's not Bieber's fault that the paps are so hungry for his peen, but it's still funny.
3. How Many Times Can You Say Sorry?
Seriously, Justin is really gonna need to get his apologizing hat on, especially now they are turning to Selena for sticking up for them.
4. Savior Selena
When your own fandom starts seeing your ex-girlfriends as their personal savior, you probably need to take a long, hard look at how you treat them.
5. No Purpose
What even is life?
6. Three's A Crowd — Literally
If a Bieber falls in the forest with no ears to hear it, does he make a sound?
7. Drama Delight
Whatever side of the fandom you're on, you probably woke up to this news like dis.
While the Twitter hashtag children this feud has spawned are undoubtably hilarious, I hate to admit that I kind of feel sorry for the Biebs here. I mean, it's not his fault that his fans are batshit with jealously over some random girl, is it?
