Justin Bieber Racist Joke Surfaces, And He Feels Bad About It [VIDEO]


Justin Bieber N-Word Video Game

Yes, it was another weekend of Justin Bieber continuing to do dumb stuff. Over the weekend, a video leaked of Bieber telling a racist joke back in 2011. The video was shot backstage at a promotional event and features a super young looking Bieber saying, “Why are black people afraid of chain saws?”  His punchline was repeatedly saying, “Run, n****r, n****r, n****r, n****r, n****r.”

Bieber’s camp, of course, immediately released a statement apologizing for Justin’s joke–which, yes, actually required multiples uses of the n-word. The Biebz’s official statement went like this: “As a young man, 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.”

And, furthermore: “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.”

This dude really just can’t seem to escape getting himself into hot water. The weirdest thing about this “joke” leaking is that Bieber was discovered by Usher. What kind of a**hole makes a racist joke when you literally have a black person to thank for your entire career. We’d like to think that the pop star has grown up since then–but this is the same Justin Bieber who recently made a little girl cry. Anyway, here’s how much fun it was to hang out with Justin back in the day…
