The impossible has come to pass.


The delightful photo of Bieber's baby smooth buttocks has been removed from Instagram, by the star himself. Why?! Here's what he says:

Hey I Deleted the photo of my butt on Instagram not because I thought it was bad but someone close to me's daughter follows me and she was embarrassed that she saw my butt and I totally wasn't thinking in that aspect. And I felt awful that she felt bad. To anyone I may have offended I'm so sorry. It was completely pure hearted as a joke but didn't take in account there are littles following me!!! Love u guys

I think he's saying small children follow him on Instagram and he doesn't want his butt to be some kind of predator, stealing the innocence of youth, like a sideways mouth that eats happiness. Fair enough! Let's not embarrass children with our naked butts.

Adults, however, can continue to enjoy butts responsibly. Or make a mockery of them, like Miley Cyrus:
