Just when you think the news concerning Justin Bieber using the N-word can’t get much worse, news surfaces that it can. A video came out featuring Justin at age 14, singing, “One Less Lonely N****r” and TMZ reports that he wants to join the KKK.
The melody of the song he used was “One Less Lonely Girl,” because Justin saw a comedian parody the song. He decided to do his own version and apparently thought it would be funny to replace girl the N-word. Once again, at the end of the song, he laughs heartily at his cleverness.
According to TMZ, Justin told Usher and Will Smith about his video. He allegedly told then that he knew right away that it was a wrong thing to do, but he did it anyway. Usher took the young Justin aside to explain how words could hurt other people.
However, Justin apparently forgot the words of Usher. The following year, 15-year-old Justin told his N-word joke while taping his 2011 concert documentary, “Never Say Never.” Even though he was cautioned not to, he couldn’t resist telling the punch line "Run N****r" five times after which he laughed.
Justin and his team allege that people who knew about the two videos have tried to blackmail Justin. Although The Sun reports that Justin launched a bid to keep the joke video hidden. Time will tell whether Justin has any more secret videos that will come out where he used racial words.
Justin's apology for the joke was, "I thought it was OK to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn't realize at the time that it wasn't funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance."
Paula Deen admits to using the N-word once, many years ago. She tearfully apologized for her remark. Justing Bieber films himself using the offensive racial slur and laughing afterwards. The first time with Justin might be overlooked because he was young. However, after Usher took him aside and explained why it was wrong, Justin still couldn't resist using the word.
Do you believe Justin means his apology, or is he just saying that because the videos became public? Tell your thoughts below.
