Justin Beiber has come forth in a public statement apologizing for his use of the n-word after footage leaked of him being a young teen making racial jokes. In the footage, a young Justin talks about black people being afraid of chainsaws and the sound the chainsaw makes sounding like the n-word. Justin wrote his apology on twitter stating,
“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 apologized for those wrongs. Now that these mistakes from the past have become public I need to apologize again to all those I have offended. I’m very sorry. I take my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and I apologize for offending or hurting anyone with my childish and inexcusable mistake.”-Justin Beiber’s twitter
