Justin Beiber opened up about suffering from Lyme disease and chronic mono in a recent Instagram post.

Hailey Bieber has slammed people mocking her husband, Justin Bieber, for speaking up about suffering from Lyme disease.

Yesterday (Jan 8), Justin Bieber took to Instagram to open up about his health. He wrote: "While a lot of people kept saying Justin Bieber looks like shit, on meth etc. they failed to realize I've been recently diagnosed with Lyme disease, not only that but had a serious case of chronic mono which affected my, skin, brain function, energy, and overall health."

Justin then added: "These things will be explained further in a docu series I'm putting on YouTube shortly.. you can learn all that I've been battling and OVERCOMING!! It's been a rough couple years but getting the right treatment that will help treat this so far incurable disease and I will be back and better than ever NO CAP"

Justin's post was met with huge praise but trolls started to make fun of him and now Hailey Bieber has called them out.

What is lyme disease? What is chronic mono?

Lyme disease is a common bacterial infection that is most often spread to humans by infected ticks. Symptoms can include tiredness, body aches and a loss of energy. It's usually easier to treat if it's diagnosed early. Meanwhile, chronic mononucleosis is a recurring fever which tends to result in high temperatures, swollen glands and exhaustion.

Hours after Justin shared his Instagram post, Hailey tweeted: "For those who are trying to downplay the severity of Lyme disease. Please do your research and listen to the stories of people who have suffered with it for years. Making fun of and belittling a disease you don’t understand is never the way, all it takes is educating yourself."

She continued: "I wanna say a huge thank you to @YolandaHadid and @bellahadid and @GiGiHadid for bringing me so much clarity and information on Lyme disease and for helping answer my questions about course of action, symptoms etc. Love you 3 amazing women." Yolanda and Bella have both had battles with Lyme disease.

Hailey also wrote: "and sending so much love to @AvrilLavigne thank you for all you do to educate people about Lyme. You’re amazing". Like Justin, Avril has also suffered from Lyme disease.

It goes without saying that Lyme disease is not something to joke about.
