Earlier today, Justin Bieber opened up about his Lyme disease diagnosis and having chronic mono, “which affected [his] skin, brain function, energy, and overall health.”
In the wake of his statement, Hailey Bieber has issued one of her own, defending her husband from people who have been “belittling” his diagnosis.
Hailey, who is supporting her husband in sickness and health, took to Twitter to urge people to “do [their] research.”
“Making fun of and belittling a disease you don’t understand is never the way,” she wrote. “All it takes is educating yourself.”
She also shouted out the Hadid family for helping her learn more about Lyme disease.
And thanked Avril Lavigne, who first talked about battling Lyme disease in 2015 and has since made it a priority to create awareness and fundraise for it.
