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*****.”

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
