Apparently Bette Midler didn't find Jeremy Bieber's tweet about his famous son's manhood funny. The 69-year-old singer and actress took to Twitter Saturday to lash out at Justin Bieber's dad for making a joke after nude photos of the singer leaked online.
"@justinbieber dad tweeted he's proud of his son's penis size. I think the biggest d--- in this situation is the dad who abandoned his son," Midler wrote. The actress' post has already been retweeted over 900 times, and fans praised Midler for calling out Jeremy Bieber.
According to Gossip Cop, the elder Bieber defended himself earlier Saturday in a series of now-deleted tweets after social media users lashed out at him for his awkward post about the "Where Are You Now" singer's nude pictures. Reportedly, the 40-year-old posted, "It’s clear a lot of the people on Twitter should be watching Sesame Street, not hyperventilating over a pretty moderate joke. #ridiculous."
In another post, Jeremy Bieber supposedly told fans they didn't "deserve [his] family." “I have never swore on Twitter, ever! Like most of you fooligans! Yall have a lot of nerve. You don’t deserve my family!!" he tweeted before adding in another deleted post, “And for the record I’ve been in Justin’s life since the day he was born!! I am sick of Yall saying I came back when he got famous!” The star's father has yet to respond to Midler's post.
As previously reported, Jeremy Bieber didn’t seem too upset that paparazzi snapped photos of his son walking around naked on private property during a recent trip to Bora Bora with model Jayde Pierce.
In response the photos leaking online, Jeremy Bieber wrote, “@justinbieber what do you feed that thing. #proud daddy.” The 21-year-old pop star has not commented on the leak, but his team did send cease-and-desist letters to online outlets that published the photos, threatening to take legal action if the images weren’t taken down.
