Pop superstar Justin Bieber has apologized to anyone he may have offended with his cheeky nude photo after deciding to remove the image from his Instagram.com page.
The Boyfriend hitmaker hit headlines on Tuesday (07Jul15) after uploading the shot, which featured Bieber standing naked on the deck of a boat, pointing at a shoreline in the distance while on vacation in Bora Bora.
The snap, which was simply captioned, "Look", was taken from behind, leaving his butt completely exposed, and fans were quick to notice and share the photo, which received more than 1.2 million 'likes' within hours of being posted.
However, Bieber has since opted to take down the picture after realizing it wasn't age-appropriate for some of his younger followers.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday (11Jul15), he wrote, "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 (sic). 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 (little kids) following me (sic)!!! Love u guys".
Meanwhile, the singer is having a low-key weekend after having his wisdom teeth removed earlier on Saturday (11Jul15), just five days after his pal Ariana Grande underwent the same procedure.
Sharing the surgery news on Twitter, Bieber wrote, "Got the wisdom teeth pulled. No fun. Glad it's over. Going back to sleep. Goodnight".
