One person is speaking up for Justin Bieber and the joke he made, by saying that he was young and didn’t know better. He defends that Justin is not a racist, he’s just a bad joke teller.

Kenny Hamilton who worked as Justin’s bodyguard at the time of the incident is an African American male. He states that he has known Justin since Justin was 12-years-old. He contends that Justin is not a racist or prejudice in any way.

Justin told a racist joke during the filming of “Never Say Never” a 2011 concert documentary. He knew the cameras were rolling, but he wanted to be funny for his friends. When he started to tell the joke, "Why are black people afraid of chain saws?” one of his friends told him not to tell that joke, but Justin didn’t listen. He repeated the punch line “Run N****r” five times. Then he laughed.

After the news hit the tabloids, Kenny posted several tweets on his Twitter page. He said, "We all make jokes about people's size, look, or race. That doesn't mean it's right but comedians make millions of dollars profiting off these jokes....of these jokes. If someone is racist or prejudice you would know from a persons actions. Not because of a joke a 15 year old says."

His next post, continued, “He will always be criticized and judged every day of his life by people who only know him because of blogs or the press. That won't change.”

Kenny lists his job status as the Director of Influencer Marketing at Beats Music.

Justin, like Paula Deen claim they said that word in innocence. Whom do you believe? Do you think that people would be more forgiving if he didn't get into so much legal trouble?
