TMZ released the video this morning, but claim they’ve had it in their possession for 4 years. It’s been kept under raps, they say, because “he was 15 and immediately told his friends what he did was stupid.”
They decided to release it today though because it made its way online in the UK anyway.
In the video, which was apparently shot backstage at a promotional event, Bieber is caught telling an extremely racist joke…in which he uses the never ok ‘n-word.’
“Why are black people afraid of chain saws?” His punchline, repeatedly saying, “Run N****r.”
Caught is a strong word though, as Justin is clearly aware that he’s being recorded. Someone off-camera even warns him not to finish the ‘joke’ after he begins telling it.
What’s even more disgusting is the adult off-camera who laughs at the joke, even suggesting that Justin might replace the chain saw with a motorcycle the next time he tells it.
Watch the video for yourself and let us know what you think. Should Justin be forgiven because he was young and stupid or does this just add to the pile of evidence pointing towards his massive egotism?
Either way, Justin will most likely have some sort of ‘explanation’ for his ignorance in a little while.
