In case you were wondering if 15-year old Canadians with chick figure skater haircuts could be edgy, Justin Bieber proves all the haters wrong in a video that was released (see it here) this weekend where he told a racist joke. He immediately faced public backlash and sources say it was quiet and awkward when he and Usher cuddled on Sunday.
A 15-year-old Justin Bieber told a racist joke to friends … knowing his own photog was in the room and rolling. The video was shot backstage at a promotional event early in his career … where Justin cracked this terrible joke … "Why are black people afraid of chain saws?" His punchline, repeatedly saying, "Run Nigger."
The next day, Bieber issued a ghost written apology and was not given a juice box before bed.
"I'm very sorry," Bieber said. "I take all my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and I apologize for offending or hurting anyone with my childish and inexcusable behavior." "I thought it was ok to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but I didn't realize at the time that it wasn't funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance," the statement said. "Thanks to friends and family I learned from my mistakes and grew up and apologized for those wrongs. Now that these mistakes from the past have become public I need to apologize again to all of those who I have offended."
Whatever. Justin Bieber could stab a baby and his fans would just try to find the baby's Twitter account so they could ask it who the fuck it even is and why it's lying and how it got to meet Justin. Seriously, Obama can't spare one drone? I mean, all we need is one. I can put it on lay-a-way after the 20th. What specific forms of ID do they require?
