Ice-Cube Weighs In On Justin Bieber Racism Scandal

Rapper and actor, Ice-Cube, was recently asked for his take on the current racism scandal that Justin Bieber finds himself caught up in.

The 20 year-old singer caused outrage after a video was published by the British tabloid The Sun of Bieber asking, "Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?"

The singer, who was smirking, then delivered the offensive punch line, saying: "Run n-----, n-----, n-----, n-----, n-----."

Only days after this video emerged online, another clip showing Bieber using racial slurs surfaced. He is seen rapping about killing a 'N-word' and joining the Klu Klux Klan, as well as changing the words of his 2009 hit 'One Less Lonely Girl' to One Less Lonely N----.'

Many stars, including Floyd Mayweather Jr, were quick to jump to Bieber's defence once the first video surfaced, but after the second clip emerged, the people in his corner have reduced.

Surprisingly the former N.W.A rapper took a much more logical stance on the issue.

"It's really on him," he told MTV News. "You gotta always be in tune with what you sayin' and who you talkin' about. What might be fun and games to you could really, really hurt and affect somebody else."

Cube will have been exposed to the N-word many times in his life, he grew up in the South Central, Los Angeles, and starred in the cult film 'Boyz N The Hood, which depicts the trials and tribulations of three young African-American males growing up in that area.

"You live and learn," he added of Justin Bieber, who noted that the 'Baby' singer is associated with many African American people so it is doubtful he will have "too many issues."

Bieber issued an apology for his "ignorance" as he was just "a kid then," after the first tape was released, and on Thursday (June 5th) he once again said he is "sorry for all those I have let down and offended," following the second tape surfacing.
