Justin Bieber Takes Down Butt-Baring Photo: Find Out Why He’s Apologizing

Though we all secretly enjoyed it (at least just a little bit), Justin Bieber has removed his infamous butt-baring photo.

The 21-year-old took to Instagram to share a fully clothed photo of himself with an apology and an explanation as to why he felt the need to take it down.

“Hey I deleted the photo of my butt on Instagram not because I thought it was bad but someone close to me’s daughter follows me and she was embarrassed that she saw my butt,” he explained. “I totally wasn’t thinking in that aspect. And I felt awful that she felt bad.”

Bieber continued, “To anyone I may have offended I’m so sorry. It was completely pure hearted as a joke but didn’t take in account there are littles following me!!! Love u guys.”

Meanwhile, people have likely already forgotten about the Bieber Butt much thanks to new photos of the singer’s reunion with Selena Gomez over the weekend.

Though we’re not entirely sure if this means they’re headed toward getting back together, it definitely sparks interest for Jelena fans everywhere.
