Justin Bieber Apologizes For N-Word Joke

Justin Bieber wearing gold shoes

In wake of The Sun releasing a video of Justin Bieber making a racist joke years ago, reportedly filmed during the 20-year-old pop star’s “Never Say Never” documentary years ago, Bieber has issued an apology. The clip features a smirking Bieber asking: “Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?” before issuing the insensitive punch line: “Run n—–, n—–, n—–, n—–, n—–,” as if imitating the sound of a chainsaw.

Bieber’s apology states:

As a kid, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt. 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.

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.
