Hailey Bieber faces backlash over new cooking show

Hailey Bieber is facing backlash after launching her cooking show on YouTube, with fans accusing her of copying Selena Gomez’s show Selena + Chef. The 26-year-old model’s “What’s in My Kitchen?” series features her making her signature chicken wing recipe and other dishes, which fans say bear a striking resemblance to Gomez’s show.


The backlash against Bieber has been intense, with fans taking to Twitter to call her out for copying Selena. One person tweeted, “Hailey really needs to stop copying Selena and she should focus on herself.”

While another added, “She wants to be left alone but copies Selena constantly.” Some fans even claimed that Bieber was giving off “single white female” vibes with the show.

Another one tweeted:

Meanwhile, Bieber defended her show, calling it a “natural spin-off” of her Who’s in My Bathroom series, which has featured celebrities such as Kendall Jenner and Gwyneth Paltrow. The model also collaborated with OBB Media to create the series, with HexClad sponsoring the project. But fans remain unconvinced, with one Twitter user posting that “HBO MAX didn’t want her.”
The criticism of Bieber’s show comes amid ongoing tensions between her and Selena Gomez, with fans accusing Bieber of copying Selena’s fashion and beauty looks. In late March, Gomez took to Instagram to urge fans to stop trolling and bullying Bieber, who had been receiving death threats.

Bieber thanked Gomez for her support, and the two even started following each other on Instagram to show their goodwill.

Despite the drama, the former Disney star has been keeping busy with her own endeavors, sharing a sexy new selfie with fans on Instagram which quickly received millions of likes and comments from her devoted fans.
