Hailey responded to the tweet, saying she thought it was a mean thing to say about someone for being a supporter.

"He expressed he was a fan of your music. Grew up listening to your music. You must be unhappy with yourself that you want to make people feel small who express their admiration for you.," she wrote. "Very childish and hurtful thing to do. I hope u find security within yourself. Sad place to be."

Hundreds of people responded, praising Hailey for being a "protective" and "supportive" wife.

"I love how much of a supportive person you are," said one fan. "Tell him to ignore those ignorant people because they will never stop, enjoy and keep winning in life."

However, not everyone thought it was Hailey's place to say something. Justin received some criticism recently for defending his manager Scooter Braun amid the controversy over buying Taylor Swift's music.

Justin posted a picture on Instagram of him and Swift apologizing for their past, but also suggesting her claims about Braun being a bully were not true.

In response, Hailey wrote underneath the post "Gentleman."

But as a result, many Swift fans are angry at Justin, and take their frustration out whenever he or Hailey speak about something publicly.

For example, one fan wrote, "you do not even reach Taylor's heels."
