Hailey Bieber said she is trying to do better after a viral TikTok claimed she was rude


Last year, a video went viral on TikTok that called out Hailey Bieber’s alleged rude behavior. 

Hailey Bieber took some time to reflect after a video calling out her alleged poor behavior went viral on TikTok last summer. 

Speaking to Dr. Jessica Clemons on her own YouTube channel, the model explained she was upset when former restaurant hostess Julia Carolan accused Hailey of being rude while she was a patron at her workplace. 

In the clip, former restaurant host Julia Carolan was rating the interactions that she’s had with celebrities over time and she gave Justin Bieber’s wife a "3.5 out of 10" for not being a nice person.

“This is gonna be controversial," Julia said in the video. "I've met [Hailey] a handful of times and every time she was not nice. I really wanna like her but I have to give her like a 3.5 out of 10. Sorry!"

At the time, Hailey apologized in the comments section of the video, writing, "Just came across this video, and wanted to say so sorry if I've ever given you bad vibes or a bad attitude. That's not ever my intention!" She also added that she hopes one day they can meet again so she can "apologize in person." Julia, for her part, accepted the apology and called Justin Bieber's wife "an accountability queen." 

Although Hailey later apologized in the comments section, she said she was actually bothered by the video when she first saw it.

Now, Hailey has opened up to Dr. Clemons about how the situation made her feel. 

"When I saw her video I was so upset," she said. "There's never an excuse for being rude. I felt bad that that was her experience with me, but it made me kind of frustrated because you never know what someone's going through. I remember going through times in my life where I was so sad, and so heartbroken that like engaging with people felt hard for me." 

"When I saw [Julia’s] video I was so upset," Hailey told Dr. Jessica Clemons during a recent conversation on her YouTube channel. "There's never an excuse for being rude.”

“I felt bad that that was her experience with me, but it made me kind of frustrated because you never know what someone's going through,” Hailey continued. “I remember going through times in my life where I was so sad, and so heartbroken that like engaging with people felt hard for me."

"I wish I didn't act that way towards her,” the model added. “I'm a human and I made a mistake and I acted a way that was out of character for me. I acted in a way that I don't want to be. I'm trying to do better every single day. I want to continue to grow as a person. I'm open to people correcting me."

However, Hailey mentioned that she doesn’t think "people that try to correct [her] and try to tell [her] what [she] needs to be and what [she] needs to do, need to be people on social media."

Either way, Hailey is moving forward and working towards being a better version of herself.

She noted the "pressure" for the "Sorry" singer to be "this perfect example to people."

Fortunately, Hailey and Justin both have each other to navigate the complicated nature of being in the spotlight.
