Just days after pop singer Justin Bieber apologized for a racial joke that was caught on video, as we reported earlier this week, a second video has surfaced in which a then-14-year-old Bieber uses the N-word, jokes about killing black people and talks about joining the Ku Klux Klan, Rolling Stone reports.
In the new video, shot five years ago, Bieber changes the lyrics to his song "One Less Lonely Girl," replacing "girl" with the racial epithet.
"In the clip, posted by TMZ, the pop star repeatedly sings, 'One less lonely n—-r,' and, 'If I kill you, I'll be part of the KKK, but there'll be one less lonely n—-r.' Throughout the 30-second video, another prepubescent voice giggles in the background," Rolling Stone reports, adding: "Bieber's team reportedly told [TMZ] that they want the video online so he can own up to it. TMZ reports that Bieber had seen video of a comedian parodying the song in the same way the pop star sings it in the video and liked it so much he wanted to film it."
TMZ notes: "We're told years ago Justin told both Usher and Will Smith about the videos, saying he knew almost immediately 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."
Rolling Stone adds: "Bieber has reportedly been the target of extortion attempts recently with the threat of revealing both this video and one of him at age 15, which recently went online, in which he also used the N-word. He has released the video to circumvent the extortion demands. TMZ reported that the video came watermarked with the word 'proof' over it."
