This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
This is just horrible!
A video has hit the interwebs of a 15-year-old Justin Bieber telling racist jokes with his friends, and they’re anything but funny!
In the short clip, The Biebs asks his friends, “Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?” and his answer involved saying the n-word MULTIPLE times, which Justin does with a smile on his face!
Disgusting and awful!
If you take a look at Bieber’s current friends and entourage, it’s clear that he’s a fan of basically anyone, no matter how they look.
Just a dumb kid telling one of the most ignorant jokes EVER!!!
We look forward to his sincerest apology.
You can see a clip of the offensive video (below), which was originally posted by The Sun.
