In an emotionally honest Instagram post posted Tuesday night, the singer acknowledged the fact that he sometimes made racist comments when he was younger. Now he is trying to catch up, using his platform for an apology.

Awareness has come

Accompanying his photo with the inscription “I am against racism” in bold gray letters, the star wrote in her caption: “When I was young, I was uneducated and found that I was saying really offensive things, not knowing the strength of my words. Racism is still very widespread, I want to use my voice to remind us that we are all human beings and all are equal before God! ”And this was not his only post on this issue. Bieber surprised his followers with this new honest post in which he talked about his shortcomings in the past and apologized for his words about racism. Sharing a photo depicting a Christmas tree, the 25-year-old singer said: “This holiday season, I am determined to take responsibility for all my shortcomings and work on them for myself and those I love

Past

In 2014, two videos appeared in the same week in which the 14-year-old Bieber (he was 19 when the clips surfaced) used the word. In the first video received by TMZ and the British edition of The Sun, Bieber says: “Why are black people afraid of chainsaws? Run nigga, nigga, nigga. ” In the second clip, received by TMZ, Bieber remixed the text of his single, One Less Lonely Girl, and sang “One Lesser Lonely Niger.” Later in the video he added: “If I kill you, I will become part of the KKK.” It was just stupid of the young singer, which he himself admitted later.

I didn’t want to offend anyone

Shortly after the video surfaced, Justin Bieber apologized for his actions. And his message was like a recent one. As stated in his statement: “As a child, I did not understand the power of certain words and how they can harm. I thought it was possible to repeat hurtful words and jokes. At that time I did not realize that it was not funny and that in fact my actions were erroneous. Thanks to friends and family, I learned from my mistakes, grew up and apologized for them. Now that these mistakes of the past have been made public, I need to apologize again to everyone I offended. I’m sorry”.

The apology continued: “I take friendship with people of all cultures very seriously and apologize for insulting or injuring someone with my childhood and unforgivable mistake. Then I was a child, and now I am a person who knows his responsibility to the world and will not make this mistake again. Ignorance does not have a place in our society, and I hope that my experience can prevent others from making the same mistake in the future. ”

Now, at 25, his sense of responsibility seems to have grown. It’s better to realize that you’re wrong later than never. The recognition of Justin Bieber caused a wave of approval on the web, many expressed their respect for the singer for his recognition of his own mistakes.
