Justin Biebers mom Pattie Mallette was called out on Twitter on Sunday for not defending her son against the media — and gave a very interesting response.

The exchange happened after Mallette accused TMZ of exploiting Mariah Careys problematic tour kick-off, writing to the site, “Didn’t your mama teach you better than to pick on others? You’re a role model, teach compassion! #GenerationChange #HumiliatingSomeoneIsntNews.”

A fan then responded to Mallette’s tweet, questioning “You stick up for mariah carey but you won’t stick up for your son when tmz drags him?”

TMZ, of course, and plenty of other outlets have been accused of capitalizing on Bieber’s troubles, and Mallette hasn’t said much publicly about her son’s up-and-down year.

She now explained in her reply, “I have to restrain myself. Trust me I am picking my battles.” “I hate reading stuff about him too TRUST ME,” she went on.

Another follower then told Mallette that “it must be hard to read about the negativity towards Justin,” and she agreed. “But lets not allow people to be bullied when they are down,” she wrote.

Mallette added the hashtags, “#PrayInstead! #WhoAreWeToJudge #GenerationChange #LoveWins.” She also went on to retweet messages from supporters.
