Justin Bieber has apologized in the wake of a new, scandalous video which was released on June 4 which saw the ‘One Less Lonely Girl’ singer performing a racist parody called ‘One Less Lonely [N-Word].’ Read on and tell us if you accept Justin’s apology!
It’s been a big few days for Justin Bieber and his frequent use of the N-word! On June 1, a video was leaked in which Justin could be seen telling an incredibly racist joke, with the N-word aas the punchline. Justin apologized for his mistake, and on June 4, yet another video was released, and it was much, much worse — he was filmed singing a parody of his 2009 hit “One Less Lonely Girl,” not-so cleverly titled, “One Less Lonely [N-Word],” in which he referenced the Ku Klux Klan. Read on for Justin’s new apology, and tell us if you accept it!
Justin Bieber Apologizes For N-Word Video — Again
“Facing my mistakes from years ago has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever dealt with,” Justin told the Sun, who leaked the initial video. “But, I feel now that I need to take responsibility for those mistakes and not let them linger.
“Once again, I am sorry for all those I have let down and offended. I just hope that the next kid that age who doesn’t understand the power of these words does not make the same mistake I once made years ago. At the end of the day I just need to step up and own what I did.”
He certainly sounds sincere, and he was definitely just a kid when he said those words, but 14 or 15 is not so young. And this is the second time he’s been caught!

However, his friends, like Lil Za and even Lil Wayne and everyone at Young Money Entertainment — the record label with which Justin frequently collaborates and to which he can credit his biggest songs — are standing behind Justin and claim that he is not a racist, just that he made a couple of stupid mistakes as a teen.
His manager, Scooter Braun, is also standing behind the Biebs. Scooter posted a quote on Instagram on June 4 which read: “Some mistakes have no excuses. They are just wrong. But how a man reacts to those mistakes… How he owns it and learns from it… That defines him more than the mistake itself. -Scooter.”
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you accept Justin’s apology?
