The Internet hasn’t been thrilled with Justin Bieber this week.

Earlier, he came under fire for promoting his clothing line with a photo of Diddy mourning his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his children, Kim Porter. But it was his April Fool’s prank, where he made everyone think he and wife Hailey Bieber were expecting their first child, that really put him in the hot seat.

On Monday, Bieber posted an image of a sonogram, which stealthy web detectives quickly pointed out was the first image to come up in a Google search for “ultrasound.” Next, he posted an image of wife Hailey holding what appeared to be a fuller belly, surrounded by doctors.

For a moment, everyone seemed to believe the news was true, especially as he has expressed his desire to be a father. But just moments later, he posted another ultrasound image with a photo of a puppy photoshopped into the center.

Almost immediately, the backlash began from people who argued that many families have either lost children or have not been able to conceive.

While Hailey wrote “very funny ….” under his initial post, the¬†Biebers¬†have yet to respond to the comments of disappointed fans.
