Justin Bieber FINALLY Speaks Out About His Racist Joke! Read His Apology HERE!

justin bieber apologizes racial jokes

We knew he had to feel pretty crappy.

A video surfaced of a 15-year-old Justin Bieber telling racist jokes with his friends, and he uses the n-word in the clip.

The pop star was so upset about this, in retrospect, and has given a very sincere apology! He said:

"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."

Lesson learned, and apology accepted.

Maybe this will help Justin realized that all of his recent antics may also be something shameful that he looks back on in the future too.

Actually, this could be the wakeup call he needed!

Thoughts???

    Really? He has to apologize for a childhood mistake? That's just silly. But - his publicist did a very nice job writing this apology for him.

    The guy is a moron & a tool of the highest order but he isn't racist. It's practically his dream to be black. He probably thought he was being "hip" & "cool"

    Now that he is keeping his nose cleaner, people still want to drag him down. I am so glad they didn't have social media when I was young…

    a) why is he needing to apologize for something he said years ago? b) no, JB, you're still not a man, as evidenced by your continuous childish behavior. c) Perez, stop being a presumptuous asshole. as you are not an african american, how can you say "apology accepted"?? get your crap together.

    Stop blaming white people for the n word, we all call each other n and we are responsible for cleaning up our act before we can ask the whites to clean up theirs. Just listen to any rap album, any and you will see my point. We are also racist and we need to stop the n word in our community

    Um yes he does need to apologize, and how ignorant of you PH or whatever your real name is Mario not to realize this was carefully written by his PR team, he cannot even spell half those words or even comprehend what they mean….

    Re: just my thoughts – They did not have social media when I was young either, we used the telephone. I still do not use social media, don't want to have to spend a lot of time worrying if people "like"me or not.
    On topic, I think he was stupid but made an honest mistake and apologized.

    Apology accepted?

    This kid was discovered and nurtured by a black person and makes black music. Bieber's fame is born of a black person– Usher– refusing to be racist. Bieber thanks him by using his celebrity power and his money and fame to make the black people he was telling those sick jokes around feel like nothing. All black people care that we have been tortured raped lynched and enslaved. There is no white teenager surrounded as Bieber is by black people that does not know the painfulness of the history. What a hateful person Bieber is. No Perez, you don't get to accept Bieber's fake apology for black people. Apology not accepted.

    Yoo you aren't black you can't accept a fucking apology on our behalf that aside JB is the man lean up

    Blacks don't own racism. You don't have to be black to be offended by it, I'm white and racism offends me. I doubt PH or anyone else whos accepted that apology are thinking "I as a rep of the black people formally accept that apology." ….really? Is that how you read that?

    Just because he wants to suck a big black di(k doesnt mean he isnt a racist.

    we should give Bieber the same amount of compassion and benefit-of-the-doubt that we gave Donald Sterling. In other words: ZERO. Bieber is an entitled little racist punk who needs to suffer the consequences of his words and actions. Period.

  33. Co says – reply to this


    33

    Instead of this you should write about a pathetic wannabe (and neverwillbe) in his late 30's who tells crap each and every day about each and every one (just put your hand on your head Perez and look what is underneath) !

    Bieber's joke doesn't even bother me. What bugs me about this article, is that Perez says "apology accepted". Perez, you're queeny white gay man thus you have no authority to accept apologies on behalf of the African American community.

  35. Mianni says – reply to this

    He is being accountable and humbly apologizing. We'll done. 15 is an age one wants to fit in…lots of peer pressure but he does not try to decent himself. Live and learn. Jokes are not always in good taste…Joan Rivers should learn to be humble and say sorry.

    These things about Justin are kind of sad. Basically, now his big points of fame are his public acts. His career, in my opinion, has gone downhill, and it might never recover. I miss the old JB. Still, racist comments are never okay. And geez, he was 15, which is way old enough to understand things like that! He wasn't 8!

    Seriously who in their right mind is thinking that Justin Bieber of all people could be racist? This is the same Justin Bieber who was widely criticized by some for trying to hard to be "black" and for having black friends who were "bad influences".. How ironic those same people are now claiming he is racist, forgetting they were the same ones saying he doesn't even know what color his skin is anymore! He did something stupid when he was 15 years old which was 5 years ago and has regretted it since.

    Re: carlystyle – Big difference between a elderly man who has lived decades with the same outlook on life and a 15 year old who is still growing up and finding out about life.. Then again that type of logic which makes sense to mostly everyone else flies right over you head… Doesn't it? Teenage years are the time to change and discover about life, if we don't allow teenagers to make mistakes and learn from them, what kind of adults will they later become??

    Re: WowzaChild – Are you serious?? All he does is get in trouble. And if I made a video making fun of hispanics or asians 5 years ago and it good out, with your logic I should ignore it bc you dont apologize after 5 years. He may or may not be racist but hes ignorant and knows he was wrong since you never saw him in public or at a concert telling this joke.
