Justin Bieber's nearly 78 million Instagram followers can rejoice: The pop star is back.

Bieber left Instagram for two weeks ago amid criticism of pictures of him and Lionel Richie's daughter Sofia from fans of Bieber's ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez. Before his account disappeared, he responded to the negativity by writing, "I'm gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don't stop the hate this is getting out of hand, if you guys are really fans you wouldn't be so mean to people that I like."

His account has returned to public view with week-old pictures and videos of Bieber introducing his new dog, Todd.

Bieber's return is being celebrated on Twitter with #JustinReactivatedParty. It follows the #JustinDeactivatedParty trend that popped up when he left Instagram.
