On the heels of the release of a video showing a younger Justin Bieber making a racist joke using the n-word, a new report indicates there’s another clip in which he does the same and goes even further as he jokes about joining the KKK.
British tabloid The Sun, via NYDN, viewed the 24-second clip in which Bieber allegedly sings about killing a n-word and joining the Ku Klux Klan.
On Sunday, Justin went into damage control mode with an apology after the initial video was posted:
“As a young man, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt. 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. I take my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and I apologize 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.”
In this latest video Bieber changes the words to his 2009 hit “One Less Lonely Girl,” written by mentor Usher, to “One less lonely n-word.”
The exact date of this footage is unknown but The Sun reports that it is was sometime after Bieber signed with the Raymond Braun Media Group “and was a rising child star.”
TMZ stated that they were in possession of the first video for years but decided against releasing it because of Justin’s age and that he is said to have told his friends at the time that what he did was stupid. After that first clip was posted via a British pay site and was “out there” TMZ decided to put it up as well.
