S! TV VIRAL: Justin Bieber tells appalling racist joke

15 year-old Justin Bieber told a racist joke to his friends back in 2011. The video picked up by TMZ has only started to circulate over the weekend. Justin has apologised to his fans profusely. Apparently TMZ has had the video in their possession for years but chose not to publish it due to his age.

The popstar said: “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’m very sorry. 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. Ignorance has no place in our society and I hope the sharing of my faults can prevent others from making the same mistake in the future.”
