Bieber has since released a statement apologizing for the joke blaming it on being "childish" and he called it an inexcusable mistake". "As a kid, I didn't understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt", said Bieber. "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."
Bieber ended the statement by saying he is sorry. Celebrities like Floyd Mayweather came out in support of Bieber claiming he is not a racist.
I can honestly say I do not believe the Biebs is a racist. I mean, all he hangs out with now is black people. I believe the statement he made was just a young dumb mistake. I also believe if you think about, you might have a made a joke like this when you were around that age (maybe not).
Some blacks consider Bieber as apart of the black community. I know tons of people who call Biebs black and even celebrities have came out calling him black as well. I am sure that was all fun and dandy until this statement was released. After watching the video, how do you feel about Bieber's joke? Also, how do you feel about some of the black community taking Bieber in? Are you still cool with that or nah?
