Following the same, Justin who seemed not very sorry for his act issued a statement defending himself. To justify his actions, he said 'there’s always gonna be people offended' and said that he is a prankster and it was 'April Fools'. However, he apologized anyway and said sorry to people who were offended. Sharing a report that talked about how netizens slamming Justin and Haily for their prank, Justin wrote:

"There’s always gonna be people offended, there are also people who don’t take jokes very well, I am a prankster and it was APRIL FOOLS. I didn’t at all mean to be insensitive to people who can’t have children. A lot of people I know, their first go to prank on April fools is telling their parents they are pregnant to get a big reaction. But I will apologize anyway and take responsibility and say sorry to people who were offended. I truly don’t want anyone to be hurt by a prank .. it’s like when I shoved cake in my little sister's face for her birthday expecting her to laugh but she cried. You sometimes just don’t know what will hurt someone’s feelings not to compare pregnancy with cake in the face but it’s just to paint the picture of not knowing what will offend. Some might have laughed but some were offended .. I think With pranks u sometimes have to roll that dice.  #prankster  #dennisthemenace #sorry #truly"
