It’s been a while since Justin Bieber did something controversial, but his latest example of bad behavior is a doozy: video has been released of him telling a racist joke. But in an uncharacteristic move, the young pop star has immediately admitted to the wrongdoing and apologized.
The video is reportedly unused footage from Justin’s 2011 movie, Never Say Never, which was filmed back when he was 15. In an apology on Twitter, he said, “As a kid, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt…. 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.”
