It hurts to be torn apart on the internet,” Hailey Baldwin, now Hailey Bieber, once wrote in an Instagram post’s caption posted in January 2020. Needless to say, being married to one of the world’s most famous teen-pop sensations—the Biebs himself—comes with massive positives as well as undeniable negatives too. The latter includes online hate, and although this type of behaviour is never acceptable, it is still perceived as somewhat okay when it is aimed at celebrities and their partner.
But when it comes to Hailey Bieber and how the internet reacts to her, equalling it to a simple ‘dislike’ would be downplaying it. Let’s be real here, a large majority of the online community hates her—even I know that for a fact, and I’m neither a Hailey Bieber fan nor a diehard Belieber in any shape or form. I just like TikTok, and recently started noticing that my For You Page was determined to show me videos consisting of montages of all the reasons Hailey Bieber is manipulating, fake, and not good for her husband, to put it simply.
Of course, that’s not what I personally believe—I don’t know the model enough to have an opinion on her and the same goes for her marriage to the Canadian singer. And who cares what I think anyway? I’m here to present you with what the rest of the world (or what seems like it) thinks. In order to do so, I scoured the web for answers, analysing the numerous Hailey Bieber hate pages I stumbled upon along the way. Here’s what I found—here’s why the internet hates Hailey Bieber.
She got accused of being rude by a restaurant hostess
Before I even begin to get into this point, there’s one thing I feel the need to address first. As much as I like to think the best of people, anyone—that includes you—who feels fine about being rude to someone working in the service industry is, I’m just going to say it, a piece of shit. Okay, that may be a tad too aggressive, but trust me, you’re not that far off. Now that we’ve cleared this up, let’s carry on, shall we?
In a series of viral TikTok videos posted by New York City hostess Julia Carolan in July 2020, she rated several celebrities she encountered over the years while working in A-list favourite eateries such as the famous Nobu Downtown. Describing her meetings with the model, Carolan admitted that she hasn’t yet had a positive experience. “This is gonna be controversial,” she revealed. “I’ve met her a handful of times and every time she was not nice. I really wanna like her, but I have to give her a 3.5 out of 10. Sorry.”
