Justin Bieber was hit was a major controversy recently when a video of him at age 15 making a racist joke surfaced online.
Bieber apologized for the five-year old clip saying, “As a kid, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt. I thought it was okay 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.”
Bieber may need to prepare another statement, because The Sun reports to have another video of the Canadian performer using racially insensitive language. In the second clip, Bieber reportedly alters the words of his song “One Less Lonely Girl” to “One Less Lonely N****r.”
He also supposedly makes a reference to joining the white supremacist group the Ku Klux Klan and jokes about killing a n****r. There is no information about when the alleged tape was made.
“Unfortunately this is the devastating reality of how Justin has behaved and reveals his attitude toward such a deeply emotive subject,” a source told The Sun. “People need to see this. Normal kids in society do not make these kind of jokes. He is protected by a network of staff, but the camera doesn’t lie. This is the real Justin.”
According to TMZ, the person who had possession of the first tape reached out to Bieber’s camp to sell the video to them for $1 million. They eventually took the price down to $500,000, but Bieber’s representatives refused to purchase the footage, because they believed it would not be that harmful since the star was only 15 at the time.
Bieber has worked with many Hip Hop artists throughout his career including Ludacris, Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, Drake, Chance The Rapper, Lil Wayne, Future, and Migos. He is also signed to Usher Raymond’s label RBMG with Scooter Braun.
