Pop Star Justin Bieber has gone into serious crisis management mode after TMZ released a new tape of 15 year old Bieber spewing racist jokes.
The Canadian Star had joked in the midst of his friends and asked: “Why are black people afraid of chain saws?” He answers his own question: “Run n*****, n*****, n*****, n*****,” he says, imitating the sound of a chain saw.
TMZ has acquired the video four years ago but refused to put it up due to how young the Pop star was at that time.
Immediately the video hit the net, it gathered thousands of views with the star coming out and publicly apologizing through his Twitter handle.
He said: “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.”
Bieber has faced problems since his DUI arrest in Miami, including an assault charge in Toronto and a felony vandalism probe in Los Angeles.
