The world’s favorite underwear model has removed the fully naked picture he posted to Instagram. While on vacation last week, Justin Bieber shared a picture of his backside, launching a slew of memes in the process. But, alas, few good things last forever.

“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,” Bieber wrote in the caption of a new Instagram post—fully-clothed—on Sunday. “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.”

Theories abound about the chain of events that led to the much-discussed Instagram. One possible explanation: Bieber has said he never wears the same underwear twice and he could’ve missed a shipment from Calvin Klein. Whatever the reason, he’s had his share of highs and lows since taking the charts by storm six years ago.
