On April Fools' Day, Justin Bieber played a prank on his fans by sharing fake pregnancy posts. Following which, the pop star received a lot of flak online saying that pregnancy is no laughing matter and slammed Bieber for insensitivity for couples who struggle to conceive or have lost children.

In response to the same, the pop star took to Instagram to issue an apology. In a long post, he wrote, "There’s always gonna be people offended, there’s also people who don’t take jokes very well, I am a prankster and it was APRIL FOOLS. I didn’t at all mean to be insensitive to people who can’t have children. A lot of people I know, their first go to prank on April fools is telling their parents they are pregnant to get a big reaction."

He took the responsibility of the insensitive post and said sorry to all those who were offended. "I will apologize anyway and take responsibility and say sorry to people who were offended. I truly don’t want anyone to be hurt by a prank."

In addition, he said that with pranks you don't know how it will affect people and hurt their feelings."It’s like when I shoved cake in my little sisters face for her birthday expecting her to laugh but she cried. You sometimes just don’t know what will hurt someone’s feelings not to compare pregnancy with cake in the face but it’s just to paint the picture of not knowing what will offend. Some might have laughed but some were offended .. I think With pranks u sometimes have to roll that dice."
