Justin Bieber issues apology for racist joke
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.”
