Justin Bieber has taken the decision to delete the now-infamous naked butt photo from his Instagram. Of course, thanks to the internet it will live on forever. But it's still a pretty big move.
Alongside taking down the photo from his page, Justin has also issued an explanation for his decision, apologizing for posting it in the first place. It's actually surprisingly nice. He's not such a bad guy.
"Hey I Deleted the photo of my butt on Instagram not because I thought it was bad but someone close to me's daughter follows me and she was embarrassed that she saw my butt and I totally wasn't thinking in that aspect. And I felt awful that she felt bad. To anyone I may have offended I'm so sorry. It was completely pure hearted as a joke but didn't take in account there are littles following me!!! Love u guys"
Bieber then followed up the post with a bunch of photos of his dog. Because as we all know, the only thing better than naked Bieber butt is a cute dog.
So much better than his butt.
More dogs, fewer butts. A rule to live by.
