Justin Bieber recently got married and thought he’d prank people on April Fools’ Day by posting a series of photos suggesting his wife is pregnant.
Bieber finally posted this photo with a dog on the ultrasound image and saying it was a joke.
People who are upset say posting fake pregnancy announcements on April 1st are insensitive to infertile couples or to women who have lost babies through miscarriage.

And a lot of people didn’t find the pop singers joke all that funny.
As someone who had their fertility taken away from them because of ovarian cancer, I don’t find @justinbieber ‘s April Fools pregnancy joke, funny at all. I think it’s insensitive and immature. But that’s me.

Seeing the lengths @justinbieber and Hailey have gone to for this April Fools is an absolute disgrace. Pregnancy and fertility are no joke. I hope they decide to take this down. #AprilFools #JustinBieber pic.twitter.com/CMa9xSbacL

April 1st can be really lame. One of my former co-workers faked a pregnancy today. I cringed when I saw it because I had literally finished reading this article, then her post was the next one down on facebook. https://t.co/FqCth5sSuf
