The Biebs is struggling. A mighty burden has pushed him to his breaking point. Grab a tissue, ’cause we recently learned something terrible.

Justin Bieber will no longer take photos with fans.

And with that proclamation — decreed by the pop prince himself on his Instagram account — a great darkness has swept across the ­Belieber nation. He is slaving for us (his words). He is nothing but a mere zoo animal, he wrote on the social network. The full text:

“If you happen to see me out somewhere know that I’m not gonna take a picture I’m done taking pictures. It has gotten to the point that people won’t even say hi to me or recognize me as a human, I feel like a zoo animal, and I wanna be able to keep my sanity. I realize people will be disappointed but I don’t owe anybody a picture.”

Harsh. Or maybe Bieber’s fans are OK with this new dark path. Evidence: The post has been “liked” more than 1 million times.

Way to stand up for yourselves, Beliebers.
