And people are pretty angry about the whole thing.

I can't compare my life to Justin Bieber's... But he wouldn't be where he is without people supporting him.

I get where he's coming from but this is rude wtf @justinbieber you chose to be famous 🙄

Justin Bieber is a wanker. Refusing to take pictures with fans anymore. Something that could mean so much to a fan, but he can't be arsed 😂

But others seem to understand where Bieber is coming from.

@justinbieber i respect your decision against taking pictures w fans. you're a person & being mobbed for a selfie 24/7 sounds horrible luv u

u guys need to understand Justin is a human too. u all treat him like he's a prize u must win. HES HUMAN treat him like one. @justinbieber

Artists don't owe you shit. Respect to @justinbieber, @amyschumer, and any celebrities who don't want to take pictures when they're out.

Back in March, the 22-year-old told fans that he was cancelling the meet and greets for his Purpose tour.

“I enjoy meeting such incredible people but I end up feeling so drained and filled with so much of other people’s spiritual energy that I end up so drained and unhappy.. Want to make people smile and happy but not at my expense and I always leave feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression .. The pressure of meeting people’s expectations of what I’m supposed to be is so much for me to handle and a lot on my shoulders.”

BuzzFeed has reached out to Justin’s management for comment.
