Justin Bieber has deleted a picture of his naked bum from Instagram after admitting he hadn't thought about his very young followers.

The 21-year-old had shocked many when he uploaded a nude picture of himself to the social networking site next week, showing him standing with his back to the camera, bum on display while on a yacht.

But now the photo has disappeared from his Instagram.

He explained: "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. 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 following me!!! Love u guys."
