Justin Bieber is in trouble again after using the N word in a rant that was caught on video and has since made its way to the internets. This time around the pop-singer jokes about joining the Ku Klux Klan and killing black people. The video of this 'rant' has not been released, like the first one was. It is being reported that the source of the second tape wants $1 million from Bieber to keep it from surfacing.
So what do you think? Do you think the comments are true? Do you think it will be released? Could there be a lot more to this from Biebs?
Justin Bieber is NOT a racist or so he says. The pop star has come under fire after a video surfaced of him telling a racist joke with the n-word several years ago.
He has since issued an apology in a statement saying:
“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.”
So do you think he is genuine in his apology? Should he be held under the same scrutiny as Donald Sterling for his comments?
