Just days after video of Justin Bieber telling a racist joke surfaced online, another undated clip obtained by The Sun reportedly shows him joking about joining the Ku Klux Klan. According to the U.K. tabloid, he riffs off his 2009 hit “One Less Lonely Girl,” changing the words to “One Less Lonely N—-” — as in, how many black people he’d kill as a member of the white supremacist group. UPDATED: The video has now been obtained by TMZ and you can watch it below.
The Sun reported on — but did not leak — this video in efforts to show “the real Justin.” On June 1, the publication attempted to do the same by leaking a five-year-old video of Bieber telling a racist joke (“Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?”), using the n-word as the kicker. The Journals star wasted no time apologizing.
Watch this second mortifying, racist Justin Bieber to surface video below.
“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,” Bieber said, as stars ranging from Soulja Boy to boxing champion Floyd Mayweather and “Looking For You” collaborators Migos came to his defense.
Unfortunately, the public may have already made their mind up: A new Billboard poll asked whether the initial leak was understandable and unforgivable, and over 85 percent said, “This is the last straw. I’m done rooting for Justin Bieber.”
It doesn’t help that Ku Klux Klan jokes are a lot harder to defend.
