Justin Bieber Apologizes For Racist Joke: “I Thought It Was OK To Repeat Hurtful Words”

Published

on

Over the weekend, a video surfaced online of a young Justin Bieber sharing an incredibly racist joke while backstage at a promotional event.

In the video, the singer can be seen sitting on a couch in a room with a group of people, sharing some jokes. Unfortunately, the then 15-year-old took one jest a little too far … And now, the singer is apologizing.

“Why are black people afraid of chain saws?”

He answers: “Run n*****, n*****, n*****, n*****.”

After the video went viral, the singer, now 20, released a statement addressing his actions:

“As a young man, 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. 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.”

According to TMZ, they got the video four years, but decided not to run it because Bieber was too young and he was “immediately told his friends what he did was stupid.” The news outlet decided to put it out after a British pay site released it on Sunday.

The Real Reason Jason Derulo Is Out Here Teaching Zumba Class

Jason Derulo popped up at an L.A. Zumba class Tuesday night but he wasn’t there to take the class … he was there to teach it.

According to Forbes, Derulo has partnered with Zumba, who will be offering exclusive classes featuring choreography to his hit song “Tip-Toe” featuring French Montana.

To kick things off the 28-year-old showed up unannounced at Beat Box Studio LA to teach a few routines, and as you could imagine everyone was mad hype.

Perez Hilton and Youtube Fitness star Caleb Mitchell were amongst the 80 folks taking the class, which also included instructors and members of the University of Southern California dance team.

“What I love most about Zumba is that they make exercising fun and make it accessible to everyone all over the world. It’s a movement,” Derulo said. “They get great global rhythms and pair it with a routine everyone can do that will give you a total body workout that feels more like party than exercise. I admire that because you don’t typically associate dancing with working out and that’s the beauty of it.”

 

No word on if Derulo will be popping up at more classes, but if he does now you won’t be surprised.
