Run n––, n––, n––, n––, n––
Justin Bieber apologizes for racist joke
Whenever Justin Bieber opens his mouth, he says something stupid, rude or offensive. Over the weekend a 3-year-old film footage of the singer surfaced. In the clip, Bieber repeatedly uses a derogatory slur. “Why are black people afraid of chainsaws? Run n––, n––, n––, n––, n––”, he says in the video. The clip was filmed for his 2011 documentary ‘Never Say Never’.
Later, Bieber tried to apologize for his action.
“As a kid, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt. I thought it was okay to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but 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 those I have offended. I’m very sorry. I take my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and I apologize for offending or hurting anyone with my childish and inexcusable mistake. I was a kid then and I am a man now who knows my responsibility to the world and to not make that mistake again. Ignorance has no place in our society and I hope the sharing of my faults can prevent others from making the same mistake in the future. I thought long and hard about what I wanted to say but telling the truth is always what’s right. Five years ago I made a reckless and immature mistake and I’m grateful to those close to me who helped me learn those lessons as a young man. Once again … I’m sorry”, he said in a statement.
It seems as if Bieber has done every possible mistake in the past. Now he has to make it up for so much. Too much!
