On April 2, amid increasing backlash, Justin posted a lengthy apology to his Instagram account. "There’s always gonna be people offended, there’s also people who don’t take jokes very well, I am a prankster and it was APRIL FOOLS," he wrote in part. "I didn’t at all mean to be insensitive to people who can’t have children."
