Justin Bieber made it clear in a new Instagram post that he’s done with fan photos.

The singer posted a comment explaining, “I’m done taking pictures. It has gotten to the point that people won’t even say hi to me or recognize me as a human, I feel like a zoo animal, and I wanna be able to keep my sanity.”

Amy Schumer made similar comments following a recent incident with one man who demanded a photo of the comedian, though she later said, “I’ll still take pictures with nice people.”

Bieber also recently canceled his meet-and-greets because of the “pressure of meeting people’s expectations.”

Unsurprisingly, the global pop star was met with some negative reaction on social media. He even posted one upset fan’s comment and tried to elaborate on his reasoning.

“I wanna enjoy life and not be a slave to the world and their demands of what they think I need to do!!” he wrote.

Braekess you are so right btw your Instagram name is fire. Years ago it was impossible to even take a picture at anytime not everyone was accessible to a camera now everyone has a camera phone and Now it’s just a different thing.If you think setting boundaries is being a douche I’m the biggest douche around but I think it’s smart and will be the only way I last. I wanna enjoy life and not be a slave to the world and their demands of what they think I need to do!! I love the fact that I am able to make people happy but cmon if you truly were in my position you would understand how tiring it is ( boo hoo Justin get over it) I’m going to keep making decisions I feel are fit for my growth and no human being will make me feel bad for it.
