Justin Bieber’s dad tells audiences to “thank a straight person” this pride month on Instagram stories.
The dad of the big time celeb shared a homophobic meme featuring a rainbow flag with the sarcastic caption “Don’t forget to thank a straight person this month for your existence.”
The now-deleted post came two days after the 48-year-old also tweeted that people “need to celebrate families.”
He added Monday, “U know the reason we’re all here! The things this generation glorifies is unbelievable!”
29-year-old Justin Bieber has yet to comment on this situation while users online have slammed his dad.
Users have also called out Jeremy for not being present through much of the early years in Justin’s life.
Despite a complicated relationship, the “Purpose” singer has supported his dad’s side of the family expanding with Erin Wagner and Chelsey Robelo.
Justin has shared birthday posts and photos with half siblings Jazmyn, 15, Jaxon 13, and Bay, 4.
The husband to Hailey Bieber has not outwardly come out to support the LGBTQ+ community in the past, however he did respond to a question surrounding homosexuality back in 2011 with Rolling Stone.
“It’s everyone’s own decision to do that,” he said at the time.
He also added, “It doesn’t affect me and shouldn’t affect anyone else.”
