JP had chosen to share a picture on the photo-sharing app, but was soon forced to delete it after being targeted by a slew of negative comments and accusations. It's a little unclear what has gone on as the snap in question has now gone from his feed, but judging by fan reactions on social media, he had shared a photo of himself and another girl online.
However, despite people jumping to conclusions, JP has now explained the photo was work-related and something he had been proud to share.
Taking to Twitter to set the record straight, JP shared a series of angry-faced emojis and tweeted: "Deleting a photo on social media of work you're proud of because senseless fans don't read the caption. Small minded people aren't we."
It sounds like JP had been on a shoot and shared one of the shots taken to social media. However, those that had seen it accused JP of being disrespectful to his girlfriend Binky Felstead.

Sad that JP felt forced to take his picture down he is entitled to do whatever he wants. X— Alexandra Felstead (@BinkyFelstead) April 26, 2016
Many then chose to criticise JP's relationship and 'how he treats' Binky, with one user suggesting there was more to the picture by replying to his tweet: "so why remove an innocent fan?"
JP's tweet clearly dismisses all speculation pointed towards his relationship with Binky and even Binks took to Twitter to support JP. She told fans she was "sad" that her boyfriend had felt like he had no choice but to delete the photo of his work.
Binky tweeted: "Sad that JP felt forced to take his picture down he is entitled to do whatever he wants. X"
Among the criticism, Binky and JP did have a whole host of fans offering them their support. Many voiced that the comments surrounding the picture of JP and another girl had been unfair, with others urging JP to repost the snap.
The couple's recent drama comes just days after JP addressed why his social media has been fairly "quiet" lately. He explained he had been approached to work with a supplement brand and had spent the last few weeks getting himself into shape for their upcoming shoot.
Sharing a shirtless photo of himself last week, JP told his followers he was proud of what he had achieved. He said: "These opportunity in life don't come along often so I wanted to give it everything I had. It's been one of the toughest things I have ever done, you sacrifice a lot but ultimately gain so much in return."
Fans of JP will know he has come under scrutiny on Made In Chelsea lately. His co-stars had been questioning his relationship with Binky, after JP appeared not to be spending a lot of time with her.
He, however, admitted he was still learning about relationships (Binky is his first girlfriend) and had been going at a pace he was comfortable with. However, he then made a conscious effort to spend more time with Binky and told Ollie Locke he has never felt how he does about Binky before.
JP then totally surprised his girlfriend by revealing he is in love with her. He told Binky: "There is something that has been on my mind for a little while now, and it turns out this is the first time that I've ever said it, and that is that I love you."
Since then, Binky has gushed that she and JP are still smitten - and their recent unity on Twitter definitely proves so!
