Troubled pop singer Justin Bieber is now facing new problems after a video has emerged of him telling a racist joke that included him dropping the N-word five times.
The Sun newspaper in England released the disturbing video of the racist joke that features a smirking Bieber asking: “Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?”
He then delivered the insensitive punch line: “Run n—–, n—–, n—–, n—–, n—–.”
Bieber also added some chainsaw noises as he delivered the joke.
The video was apparently taken during filming of the 20-year-old pop star’s “Never Say Never” documentary in 2011, the newspaper reported.
Representatives for Bieber, who looks much younger in the video, tried to buy the video for a large amount of money to keep it from being released, The Sun reported.
“This video is Justin Bieber and his camp’s worst nightmare. Even after the year he’s had, when he’s never been far from controversy, this tops the lot,” a source told the newspaper.
Ironically, Bieber denied he used the N-word in a song that was uploaded on YouTube last summer and incorrectly stated he sang it. The song titled “What She Wants” was actually a hoax and not recorded by him.
