Justin Bieber is BLASTING HollywoodLife for its “untruthful” stories and “hurtful” lies, and calling for the outlet to be shut down.

As Gossip Cop has reported, the disreputable outlet publishes seemingly made-up stories about Bieber and other celebrities every day. On Tuesday, for instance, the site ran at least three so-called “exclusives” about the star, the last of which had the headline, “Gigi Hadid Warns Nicola Peltz About Justin Bieber: He’s A ‘Heart-Breaker’ Who’ll Hurt You.” The webloid has since pulled that apparently fabricated story, but only because Bieber called them out on Instagram in a scathing message.

In a typed photo, Bieber said, “The website HollywoodLife is untruthful and hurtful let’s spam them and petition to shut them down! GO!!” He added in the caption, “Let’s spam and petition to shut this garbage website down.” The post, which has nearly 500,000 likes, has since become filled with comments from fans writing, “#shutdownhollywoodlife.”

And Bieber is not the first celebrity to speak out against HollywoodLife, or HollywoodLies, as it’s become known. Selena Gomez, who was the subject of some of the since-deleted Bieber-related “exclusives” on Tuesday, once wrote on Instagram that the webloid is “never true. Ever.” She also called the outlet the “worst” in a Billboard interview last year.

Other stars who have ripped the webloid for its inaccurate, misleading, and manipulative stories range from Hailey Baldwin to Austin Mahone. And it’s why Gossip Cop routinely exposes the site’s faux-journalism. Check out Bieber’s Instagram message below.
