News revolving around Justin Bieber has reached the point where it’s hard to decipher what is real and what is fake. Unfortunately, this is very, very real.
TMZ was able to obtain video of a young 14 year old Bieber singing to his own song “One Less Lonely Girl” but with less lyrics about charming a young lady into becoming his girlfriend and more lyrics about killing black people and joining the KKK:
A video taken five years ago of then-14-year-old Justin Bieber changing the lyrics to his own song, “One Less Lonely Girl” – but replacing “girl” with the N-word – has surfaced online. In the clip, posted by TMZ, the pop star repeatedly sings, “One less lonely n—-r,” and, “If I kill you, I’ll be part of the KKK, but there’ll be one less lonely n—-r.” Throughout the 30-second video, another prepubescent voice giggles in the background.
Bieber’s team (who must never get to sleep now) is claiming that they are responsible for TMZ getting the clip because they wanted to own up to it. Bieber had reportedly been getting threats of extortion over this inflammatory video. Bieber recently had to apologize for another old video which showed a 15 year old Bieber telling a racist joke.
“As a kid, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt,” he said. “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.”
Remember when you were sick of hearing about Justin Bieber because he sang that “Baby” song? Such innocent times.
