Justin Bieber has issued an apology to his fans for the second video released this week which depicts him using racist words.
“Facing my mistakes from years ago has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever dealt with,” the 20-year-old singer said (via Us Weekly.) “But I feel now that I need to take responsibility for those mistakes and not let them linger. I just hope that the next 14-year-old kid who doesn’t understand the power of these words does not make the same mistakes I made years ago. At the end of the day I just need to step up and own what I did.”
Justin‘s manager Scooter Braun posted a picture to Instagram, which read, “Some mistakes have no excuses. They are just wrong. But how a man reacts to those mistakes… How he owns it and learns from it… That defines him more than the mistake itself.”
In case you missed the video, watch it here – Justin inserted a very derogatory word into his song “One Less Lonely Girl.”
