Justin Bieber issues apology for racist joke

June 2, 2014 2:49 pm

Embattled pop star Justin Bieber had to issue an apology after video surfaced of him using the N-word

repeatedly in a cruel joke. The video was taken during Bieber’s 2011 documentary “Never Say Never”.

The British Sun released the shocking video where the pint sized pop star smirkingly says ““Why are

black people afraid of chainsaws?”

He then shockingly says in a chainsaw sound, “Run n—–, n—–, n—–, n—–, n—–.”

The Bieber camp immediately issued an apology and Bieber himself said, “I’m very sorry,” he said. “I

take all my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and I apologize for offending or hurting

anyone with my childish and inexcusable behavior.

I thought it was ok to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but I didn’t realize at the time that it wasn’t funny

and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance. Thanks to friends and family I learned from

my mistakes and grew up and apologized for those wrongs. Now that these mistakes from the past have

become public I need to apologize again to all of those who I have offended.

I thought long and hard about what I wanted to say but telling the truth is always what’s right. Once

again … I’m sorry.”
