The Justin Bieber/Selena Gomez breakup continues to create shockwaves around the world. And nowhere is that more evident than on Twitter and other social media sites as well as the fan sites that religiously report the quotidian vicissitudes in the Bieber/Gomez relationship. Comments from both Justin's and Selena's fans and haters, as well as Jelena fans and haters are raging around the web like wildfire. Appearing below are just a few of the crazier--er--more heartfelt ones.
"Dear Selena, If you and Justin are back together, please take care of him," wrote a concerned fan. "We don't like seeing our baby hurt. Sincerely, Beliebers."
"Just get back together but take ur time," wrote a couple of Jelena lovers, adding "it is ok yall maybe get back together."
Of course, not all the messages were so optimistic or so nice.
"This is sooo stupid haha I love that they broke up," wrote one anti-fan who didn't seem fond of either Selena or JB. "I was actually recently saying that they wouldn't last forever and it would prob end soon. They're young who cares! I also wouldn't consider them the 'golden couple'. Definitely not...also it's funny how when they first got together Bieber fans were threatening Selena and now they're all sad."
Actually, that hater's last comment made a valid point. Others were just plain sarcastic and mean.
"Justin: Selena calls me up and she's like 'i still love you' and I'm like 'this is not swaggy, we're never getting back together like ever,'" ? one rather creative hater wrote, obviously referring to Taylor Swift's breakup song "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." Swift is known to be Selena Gomez's best friend.
Still another belieber taunted Selena by referring to Justin's rumored dalliance with model Barbara Palvin.
"Wouldnt it be HILAR," she wrote, "if justin gives selena her stuff back in a victoria's secret shopping bag."
Ultimately, some people seemed totally confused by all that's transpired between their idols.
"When someone asks me if Justin and Selena are still together," mused one, "Yes, No, Maybe, I don't know, Could you repeat the question?"
So, there you have it. What do you think will eventually happen to the Justin Bieber/Selena Gomez romance? Will they reconcile like their fellow mega-celebrity couple Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart? Or are they, like Taylor Swift and the guy in her song "never ever getting back together?"
