Justin Bieber Sings N-Word, Jokes About KKK in Racist Video
Justin Bieber is in more trouble after another video of the singer making racist jokes surfaced.
According to TMZ, the leaked footage was shot when the singer was 14. He can be seen singing his hit “One Less Lonely Girl,” but replacing the word “girl” with the N-word. The video was inspired by a comedian he saw online.
The racist lyrics include, “If I kill you, I’ll be part of the KKK, then there’ll be one less lonely n****r.”
Bieber and his team reportedly wanted this video to go public so he can accept responsibility for what he did. He also wants to end the threats of extortion he’s received in the past.
The pop superstar reportedly told his mentors Usher and Will Smith about the videos years ago, admitting it was a stupid thing to do. In response, Usher made him watch historically racist videos to show how hurtful words can be.
After the first video surfaced over the weekend, Bieber apologized. “As a young man, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt,” he said in a statement. “I thought it was OK 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.”
