In the wake of Justin Bieber’s latest racial video, the star has been criticized, roasted and earmarked as a racist … But there are also several people coming to the the star’s defense.
Some of Hollywood’s heavy weights, including boxing champ, Floyd Mayweather have taken to social media to defend the star, claiming the the 20-year-old is far from prejudiced.
“Justin has been nothing but kind to me, my daughters & sons over the years. We all make mistakes when we are young, it’s part of growing up,” Floyd Mayweather tweeted.
MC Hammer even took to the star’s defense, tweeting:
“I’ve been here six decades, been around the world numerous times, seen it all, @justinbieber is not a RACIST .. #LoveisLove.”
The Young Money Cash money crew has also spoken out about their dear friend, telling TMZ that they still support the Canadian singer.
Mack Maine tells the news out let that Bieber, “legitimately adopted the culture of the hip hop, African American culture” and that he “does not have a slave mentality. He treats his people with respect.”
This week alone, two videos have surfaced of a young Justin repeating racial jokes and comments. On Monday, TMZ released a video of a 14-year-old Bieber singing, a parody of his hit track, “One Less Lonely Girl” … “There’ll be one less lonely n*****” Justin says.
And over the weekend, a clip was released of a then 15-year-old singer, backstage of a promotional event sharing an incredibly offensive jest.
“Why are black people afraid of chain saws?”
He answers: “Run n*****, n*****, n*****, n*****.”
