Justin Bieber apologizes for being racist
June 3 , 2014
Justin Bieber came forward to apologize for using the n-word and telling a tasteless joke to his friends four years ago.
"I thought it was OK to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but I didn't realize at the time that it wasn't funny and that in fact my actions were continuing in ignorance," he said in a statement, as per the AP. "Thanks to friends and family, I learned from my mistakes and grew up and apologized for those wrongs. Now that these mistakes from the past have become public, I need to apologize again to all of those whom I have offended."
The singer continued to say he's "very sorry" and hopes that his fault would keep other people from repeating the same mistakes.
