Justin Bieber apologises for racist joke

Singer Justin Bieber has apologised for using the N-word during the filming of a 2011 documentary “Never Say Never” Bieber used the term when he was 17, but the documentary emerged recently, and Bieber had to issue a long apology for the racist remark, reportedly.

The 20-year-old delivered an offensive punch line: “Run n*****, n*****, n*****, n*****, n*****”. In his apology, he has said: “As a kid, I didn`t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt. I thought it was okay to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn`t realise at the time that it wasn`t funny and that, in fact, my actions were continuing the ignorance.”

“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 those I have offended.” Bieber, who is mentored by singer Usher, blamed it all on his immaturity.

“I apologise 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 said.

“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. I thought long and hard about what I wanted to say but telling the truth is always what`s right,” added the “Baby” hitmaker.
