Video Of Justin Bieber Telling Racist Joke Resurfaces To Haunt Troubled Singer

Oh, Justin Bieber, when will you stop acting out already? The troubled singer is in the news again and unfortunately the story has very little to do with his music. Technically though, the racist slurs Justin has been caught using this time are not recent, but only recently emerged in extra video footage from his 2011 documentary Never Say Never.

Justin Bieber might be trying to clean up his act these days. but his past is back to haunt him.

The trouble isn’t just that JB used that one most hated racist slur (although that’s certainly troubling), but also the context. According to The Sun, Bieber originally tried to pay to keep the video private.

The Sun was also the website to leak the video in the first place. In it, Bieber can be seen making the following, highly offensive, multiple-trigger-warnings joke:

“Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?”

He then delivered the insensitive punch line: "Run n-----, n-----, n-----, n-----, n-----."

Justin Bieber
No, JB. Just no.

Oh, and just for an added touch, he apparently made chainsaw noises as well.

Representatives for Bieber, who looks much younger in the video, tried to buy the video for a large amount of money to keep the footage from being released, The Sun reported.

"This video is Justin Bieber and his camp's worst nightmare. Even after the year he's had, when he's never been far from controversy, this tops the lot," a source told the newspaper. 

This tops a pretty awful PR year for Bieber. At least he didn't get arrested this time, though.
