It's no surprise that Justin Bieber pissed off a lot of people by refusing to take photos with fans on the street.
On Tuesday, the superstar made a bold declaration about how he was no longer going to be snapping selfies with Beliebers who approach him out in public because he feels like a "zoo animal" when cameras are constantly shoved in his face.
That's a fair point, but hey, it's also the price of fame.

Well, one fan on Instagram was not happy with the 22-year-old's camera crackdown, and resorted to calling him names on social media, writing:
"You're such a prick. Your fans are the reason you are as successful as you are. The least you could do is take pictures with them. I'm sure it's annoying not being able to live a 'normal' life, but 'normal' isn't what you signed up for. Get over it and stop being a douche."
We get the frustration, but is name-calling really necessary?! Justin sure didn't think so! In fact, he shared a screenshot of the hurtful comment, and fired back with his own response in the caption, penning:
"Years ago it was impossible to even take a picture at anytime not everyone was accessible to a camera now everyone has a camera phone and Now it's just a different thing. If you think setting boundaries is being a douche I'm the biggest douche around but I think it's smart and will be the only way I last."
The only way you last?! Damn, that sure sounds serious! We hope everything is okay!
The Biebs continued:
"I wanna enjoy life and not be a slave to the world and their demands of what they think I need to do!! I love the fact that I am able to make people happy but cmon if you truly were in my position you would understand how tiring it is ( boo hoo Justin get over it) I'm going to keep making decisions I feel are fit for my growth and no human being will make me feel bad for it."
