Reactions

Some responses to the 25-year-old's Instagram post were quite good...

'literally he didn’t do anything wrong but enjoy this holiday with his wife.'

'It’s funny how some people will be completely ignored but celebrities are constantly being watched.'

'Let him enjoy his own life and maybe try to get one of your own.'

While others were pretty bad...

One user wrote, 'Man, shut the f**k up! PREGNANCY IS NOT A F***ING JOKE!'

'You can’t f***ing compare faking pregnancy to smashing cake in someone’s face!!! Grow the f**k up!!!'

Another commented, 'Newsflash: you can prank people WITHOUT being an insensitive pr**k.'

'I hope and pray you will never have to feel the pain of infertility or suffer the loss of a child before they’re even born.'

Justin hasn't commented any further.
