Justin Bieber Allegedly Featured In Much Longer Racist Video: Report
Justin Bieber is allegedly featured in “15 to 20 more minutes” of footage containing racist slurs and jokes, according to a new report.
According to the outlet’s source, the longer tape “explicitly shows this was more than just one regrettable joke.”
In the alleged extended footage, reportedly taken around the same time as the already surfaced recordings, Bieber purportedly cracks jokes about black people liking watermelon and asks a friend whether “his parents are as black as [rapper] Akon.”
On Thursday, he reportedly issued a new statement to The Sun, where he’s quoted as saying that “facing my mistakes from years ago has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever dealt with.”
“I feel now that I need to take responsibility for those mistakes and not let them linger,” added Bieber. “At the end of the day, I just need to step up and own what I did.”
