Justin Bieber is using Instagram to ask his fans for forgiveness after his latest embarrassment. The 20-year-old pop star has been under fire after not one but two videos were leaked showing him making racist comments.
While both videos are at least four years old, people have been labeling Bieber a racist, after he jokingly used the "N-word" and talked about the KKK. On Wednesday, the singer posted three biblical verses to his social media account, two from the Book of John and one from Isaiah -- and the passages deal with forgiveness and salvation for your sins. The photo was liked by more than 500,000 of his nearly 17 million Instagram followers.
But can he be forgiven?
Over the weekend, TMZ released a video in which Bieber, then 15, asks, "Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?" while answering his own question with the N-word, though someone on camera warns him not to go there. The singer, who is now 20, apologized in a statement released to the Associated Press.
"I'm very sorry," Bieber said. "I take all my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and I apologize for offending or hurting anyone with my childish and inexcusable behavior."
But on Wednesday, a new video emerged, and Bieber sings about killing a “N-word,” and joining the terrorist, white supremacist Ku Klux Klan.
In the latest 24-second video first viewed by British tabloid The Sun, Bieber changes the words of his 2009 song, “One Less Lonely Girl,” which was written by his mentor Usher, who is African-American, to “One Less Lonely N----.”
He also mentions the KKK. The video was made when Bieber was 14 and his camp said they wanted it to be released so he could own up to his actions. A source tells The Sun, “Unfortunately this is the devastating reality of how Justin has behaved and reveals his attitude toward such a deeply emotive subject. 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.”
