Hot on the heels of Justin Bieber’s apology for a video that shows him making a making a racist joke at the age of 15, a second clip has been released that is arguably even worse.
This morning, Britain’s The Sun that claimed to have a clip that featured the pop superstar singing his 2009 hit “One Less Lonely Girl,” but replacing the word “Girl” with a racial slur, and then proceeding to make jokes about committing murder and being in the Ku Klux Klan.
Now, TMZ has released the video, which shows a very young Bieber performing for the camera while a woman can be heard laughing in the background.
It’s unclear when this particular video was filmed, but it’s already causing backlash, with a source telling The Sun (via The New York Daily News), “Unfortunately this is the devastating reality of how Justin has behaved and reveals his attitude toward such a deeply emotive subject. People need to see this. Normal kids in society do not make these kind of jokes. He is protected by a network of staff, but the camera doesn’t lie. This is the real Justin.”
Meanwhile, TMZ alleges that a teenage Bieber showed mentor Usher and Will Smith the two offensive videos back when they were first made and that he “almost immediately knew it was a stupid thing to do.”
“Usher took him into a room and showed him historically racist videos to drive home how hurtful these words can be,” the gossip site writes.
Justin Bieber has not yet commented on the latest controversial clip.
