Justin Bieber apologises for using n-word

Story Highlight

The singer says his actions were ignorant and immature.

Justin Bieber has apologised for using the ‘n’ word, calling it a ‘reckless and immature mistake’.

The apology came after The Sun published a video online showing Bieber telling a racist joke where he repeatedly used the words “Run n*****” five times.

During the footage, which was initially shot as part of his Never Say Never documentary in 2011, a female voice can be heard saying “Don’t even say it. Don’t say it.”

In an apologetic statement, Justin says that he has grown up now and realises that his actions were ‘continuing the ignorance’.

“I was a kid then and I am a man now who knows my responsibility to the world and not to make that mistake again” he said.
