  • Selena Gomez responded to "vile" and "disgusting" comments seemingly aimed at Hailey Bieber.

  • In a candid "Call Her Daddy" interview on Wednesday, the model said she never "stole" Justin Bieber.

  • Gomez discussed the irony of having "kind words" lip products and fans harassing Hailey Bieber.

Actress and singer Selena Gomez seemingly responded to attacks on Hailey Bieber in a TikTok Live on Thursday, one day after the model discussed rumors about her history with Justin Bieber and his former relationship with Gomez on the "Call Her Daddy" podcast.

"I think some of the things that I don't even need to be aware of are just vile and disgusting," 30-year-old Gomez said in the live, parts of which were recorded by viewers and uploaded to social media. "And it's not fair, and no one ever should be spoken to in the manner that I've seen."

Gomez appeared to be addressing harassment that some of her fans were engaging in against the Biebers.

"It's incredibly ironic that I would release something that is all about kind words," Gomez said, referencing her makeup line, Rare's "Kind Words" lip products, "'cause that's exactly what I want. That's it."

"If you support Rare, I cannot thank you enough, but know that you are also representing what it means, and that is: words matter. Truly matter. So, it ain't comin' from me, and I just want all of you to know that I hope that you understand that this is much bigger than anything else.

"I'm really grateful to all of you for hearing me out, so, have a wonderful rest of your day, and I appreciate all the love. Thank you."

This isn't the first time Gomez has stepped in to ask fans to speak more kindly to the Biebers. In October 2019, Gomez released the song "Lose You to Love Me," which many speculated was about the end of her relationship with Bieber. Hours later, Hailey Beiber posted an Instagram Story with a screenshot of the Summer Walker song "I'll Kill You," and some Gomez fans interpreted it as a dig on Gomez. Gomez then posted a video online asking her fans to be "kind."

"I am grateful for the response the song is getting," she said, "however I do not stand for women tearing women down and I will never ever be by that."

"If you're my fans, don't be rude to anybody, please," she continued.

On Wednesday, Beiber talked about her marriage and her husband's highly publicized former relationship with the "Only Murders in the Building" actress, among other things.

In part, the 25-year-old "Rhode" founder said there was no overlap between her relationship with Justin and his relationship with Gomez.

"No. Not one time," she told host Alex Cooper. "When him and I started hanging out, like — OK, let's just put it this way: When him and I ever started like hooking up or like anything of that sort, he was not ever in a relationship ever at any point. I would never. It's not my character to mess with someone's relationship. I would just never do that. I was raised better than that. I'm not interested in doing that, and I never was."

"Like I can say, period, point-blank, I was never with him when he was in a relationship with anybody. That's the end of it. And I had been involved with him since I was 18. The timeline also that I think sometimes is in question of like — us getting together and getting engaged and him having been spending time with his ex before that — this is so crazy, I've literally never talked about this, ever — I understand again, how it looks from the outside and there's a lot of perception there, but that was a situation where I know for a fact that it was the right thing for them to close that door."

Representatives for Hailey Beiber and Selena Gomez did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
