Amid the ongoing drama involving Hailey Bieber and Selena Gomez, a stylist associated with the former has shown where his loyalties lie by sharing a 'hate' post against the singer.
For those not in the know, fans have long speculated a feud between the pair ever since Justin Bieber proposed to Hailey – just two months after he split from Selena, who he'd been dating on-and-off for seven years.
Though they have denied any bad blood, the rumours were reignited when Hailey and her friend Kylie Jenner uploaded an Instagram Story which appeared to mock Selena for over-laminating her eyebrows.
A whole lot has happened since then, with many siding with Selena and describing Hailey and Kylie as the 'mean girls' of social media.
Despite the fact that the 'Calm Down' singer has repeatedly told people to 'be kinder', a stylist who has worked with Hailey Bieber has made a clear signal showing where he stands on the situation.
In an Instagram Story on his private account, Von Ford wrote: "I hate Selena Gomez."
Ford then shared a follow-up which seemed to show that his original story had been removed as it violated Instagram's community standards, but he doubled down by adding: "I said what I said!"
BuzzFeed reports that while Hailey was listed among his celebrity clients at the time of the post, her name has since been removed from Von Ford's website.
His outbursts have resulted in a heavy backlash to the hate, with hundreds of people taking to Twitter to share their thoughts.
One person wrote: "Von Ford, Hailey Bieber’s stylist, decided to join in on the bullying of Selena Gomez, and the internet is not having it.
"These bullies just don’t learn their lesson. Goodbye Mr Stylist, you won’t have a job no mo!"
"Me seeing people say 'he's over' bruh he never started," said another, while a third added: "Lol he's Hailey's stylist. Didn't expect anything different."
A fourth chimed in: "Von Ford slid into a fight. Said he HATE Selena Gomez and implied she should suffer then ran away."
Some did jump to his defence, however, including this person who wrote: "So Selena stans can share their hateful opinion on Hailey for years and this couple of weeks and been shady, rude, hateful and disgusting, BUT Von Ford can’t only say that he hates Selena Gomez?
"Make it make sense Selena stans? You have been bullies for over a damn week."
Ford's post aside, the past few weeks have been fraught with speculation, one of the latest incidents involving a party favour at Justin's 29th birthday bash.
Guests were given a silver lighter featuring a cowboy hat bearing the words, "I am so grateful that I didn’t end up with that what I thought I wanted," which some believe was a subtle dig at his former flame.
Over the same weekend, the 'Sorry' singer made a surprise appearance at Rolling Loud Festival, only to be met with chants of 'f*** Hailey Bieber' coming from the crowd, a move even Selena's fans said went too far.
As well as these recent incidents, old tweets from Hailey about Justin and Selena have resurfaced and the same goes for a clip of Hailey pretending to gag at the very mention of Taylor Swift's (Selena's BFF) name.
In short, it's a bit of a mess, and the former Disney star has had enough of it.
Although she decided to take a break from social media, claiming that she was getting 'too old' for the 'silly' online drama, she has since returned and posted a PSA to the fans.
In a comment under her latest beauty tutorial video, she wrote: "Please, please be kinder and consider others' mental health. My heart has been heavy and I only want good for everyone. All my love."
UNILAD has contacted Von Ford for comment.
