A day later, the 25-year-old pop singer issued an apology of sorts on his Instagram, particularly directed towards those who were offended by his previous posts and not exactly for his prank. "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 Fool's. 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 Fool's is telling their parents they are pregnant to get a big reaction. But I will apologize anyway and take responsibility and say sorry to people who were offended," read an excerpt from his post.

"Some might have laughed but some were offended... I think with pranks you sometimes have to roll that dice," Bieber added in his post, sharing the screenshot of an article headlined: "Justin Bieber slammed on social media for fake pregnancy news."

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. But 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.. 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. #prankster #dennisthemenace #sorry #truly

"If you thought it was April Fool's," wrote Bieber. While netizens speculated Hailey Baldwin's probable pregnancy for an hour, Bieber exposed it to be an April Fool's Day prank in a follow-up post.
