Orlando Bloom on Justin Bieber Instagram

Yesterday, the world rejoiced with the news of Orlando Bloom taking a swing at Justin Bieber, our jealousy being far surpassed by our joy that someone finally did it. Faced with the fact that the world saw him nearly get KTFO by Legolas, Justin returned home to do some reflecting on his–HAHAHAHA! No just kidding, he put a photo on Instagram that looked like Orlando crying. Sick burn, bra! (*Cue the sound of a million air horns*) Us Weekly reports …

After the Pirates of the Caribbean actor, 37, and the “Boyfriend” singer, 20, nearly came to blows at Ibiza hotspot Cipriani on July 30, Bieber took to his Instagram to taunt the actor with a very telling photo. The photo was of Bloom appearing to cry at the opening night of Romeo & Juliet in September 2013. Bieber left it without a caption, but his message was pretty clear.

As I said yesterday in that post about Kim Kardashian “calling someone out”, being a little bitch on Instagram isn’t tough. It’s passive-aggression over social media, carefully padded by a protective layer of yes-men. He’s basically created his own little echo chamber of sycophants, meant to make him feel like he was in the right and Orlando was being a meanie. And that’s just how he likes it.
