It’s no wonder Justin Bieber took off to vacation in Mexico this month. His team is releasing video after video of him making racist remarks, and according to TMZ they are doing it to stop former members of Justin’s team from trying to extort him for cash.
Justin’s team decided to release both of these videos, but it’s unclear if they have more to release as well. A source spoke with TMZ about how sorry Justin is that the videos have surfaced, but how glad he is that he is finally able to own up to what he did.
Apparently Justin was also sat down by his manager and mentor Scooter Braun and Usher and given a stern lecture back when he first made the videos.
Here is Justin’s apology for the previous video:
“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. I was a kid then and I am a man now who knows my responsibility to the world and to not make that mistake again.
Ignorance has no place in our society and I hope the sharing of my faults can prevent others from making the same mistake in the future. I thought long and hard about what I wanted to say but telling the truth is always what’s right.
Five years ago I made a reckless and immature mistake and I’m grateful to those close to me who helped me learn those lessons as a young man. Once again….I’m sorry.”
No word yet if another apology is on the way for the latest video. Watch at your own discretion.
