Other celebs who have defended the Baby singer include Russell Brand, Whoopi Goldberg and rapper 50 Cent. Justin apologised in a statement after the first video emerged, in which he tells a joke that used the N-word.
He said: ‘I’m very sorry. I take my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and 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.’
