Justin Bieber has been caught once again using the N-word, this time talking about the Ku Klux Klan and singing a parody of his song ‘One Less Lonely Girl’ — ‘One Less Lonely [N-Word]’ — in a new video. Justin told his mentor, Usher, about the video years ago, and Usher was NOT happy. Click to see the video and to read all the details about Justin’s newest, most shocking video!
Justin Bieber may need to make a couple more stops on his apology tour. Not one week after a video leaked on June 1 of the 20-year-old superstar, at 15, telling a joke with the N-word as the punchline, a new video has been released of Justin using the N-word once again, talking about the Ku Klux Klan, and singing “One Less Lonely [N-Word]”. This new video was released on June 4, and Justin’s mentor, Usher, was not happy about the video when Justin told him about it. Check out the video and read on for all the details!
Justin Bieber: Ku Klux Klan Referenced In New N-Word Video
The 24-second clip has Justin singing his 2009 hit “One Less Lonely Girl,” changing the lyrics to “One Less Lonely [N-Word].” Not good. He also references the Ku Klux Klan, singing, “If I kill you, I’ll be a part of the KKK, and there’ll be one less lonely [N-word],” and a girl can be heard laughing in the background.
The first video was released on June 1 by the Sun, and features Justin telling an incredibly racist joke. “Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?” He asked. The punchline? ““Run n****r, n****r, n****r, n****r!”
What’s even more shocking is that this newest video, leaked June 4, was taken during the time that Justin was being mentored by Usher and Will Smith. Justin told Usher about the videos years ago, TMZ is reporting, and while Justin “knew almost immediately it was a stupid thing to do … Usher took him into a room and showed him historically racist videos to drive home how hurtful these words can be.
“Bieber and his team say various people have tried to extort him over the last few years — demanding money for both this video and the one he made when he was 15. Justin says he will not be shaken down anymore. He says he wants people to see the video and he wants to accept responsibility.”
Furthermore, HollywoodLife.com can confirm that TMZ’s reporting is accurate — that, indeed, Justin showed the tapes to Usher five years ago and that Usher was not pleased, a source close to Justin revealed.
Justin Bieber’s Team Is Standing By His First Apology
HollywoodLife.com has contacted Justin’s reps for comment, but they have only referred us to Justin’s previous apology, which you can see in full below:
“As a kid, 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. Thanks to friends and family I learned from my mistakes and grew up and apologised for those wrongs. Now that these mistakes from the past have become public I need to apologise again to all those I have offended. I’m very sorry. I take my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and I apologise 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. Ignorance has no place in our society and I hope the sharing of my faults can prevent others from making the same mistake in the future. I thought long and hard about what I wanted to say but telling the truth is always what’s right. Five years ago I made a reckless and immature mistake and i’m grateful to those close to me who helped me learn those lessons as a young man. Once again….I’m sorry.”
Justin Bieber Was Shaken Down For $1 Million For Racist Joke Video
Furthermore, it’s important to note that Justin was shaken down for this video — TMZ has reported that someone approached Justin’s reps two months ago with the video, demanding $1 million or it would be leaked to the press. Justin’s reps didn’t bite, and the price was dropped to $800k. One week ago, they were approached yet again with the video, this time with a $500k price tag, and it was still a no-go — “Bieber’s people wouldn’t make the deal because they didn’t think the tape was that harmful … especially because Bieber was 15 years old when he told the racist joke,” said TMZ.
So, HollywoodLifers, is Justin forgiven for the huge mistakes he made when he was 15? Do you need to hear a new apology? We wouldn’t blame you. Let us know!
