This evening, Selena Gomez sent a message to her ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber (opens in new tab) after he received major fan backlash for asking them to stop hating on Sofia Richie, the new girl he's dating (whose pic has been all over his Instagram).

"If you can't handle the hate, then stop posting pictures of your girlfriend lol," Gomez commented on one of his pics of her. "It should be special between you two only. Don't be mad at your fans. They love you."

Bieber appears to have commented back. "It's funny to see people that used me for attention and still try to point the finger this way," he wrote, a true jab to the woman who has been open about her struggle to be seen as more than just Bieber's ex (opens in new tab). "Sad. All love."

Gomez has yet to directly respond to that. Instead, she posted her own Instagram to show the world (including Bieber) just how she treats her fans.
