Bieber 'raps about joining KKK'
Justin Bieber supposedly sings about joining the Ku Klux Klan in a new scandalous video clip.
Footage surfaced over the weekend of the singer using the N-word when he was just 15 years old and the musician subsequently apologised for the offensive language.
And now British newspaper The Sun is reporting Justin is involved in a second racism scandal. The outlet claims it has viewed another video of the pop star "changing the lyrics of his song One Less Lonely Girl to crack a vile joke about killing black people".
It is claimed Justin was laughing and joking about joining the Ku Klux Klan in the altered track, which he retitled "One Less Lonely N*****" in the footage, according to the publication.
The Ku Klux Klan is a hate group that originated in the American south around the time of the Civil War in the 1860s. The organisation is associated with lynching and murdering black people, among other atrocities, in the name of white supremacy.
Bieber's representatives have not yet commented on reports a new video of him spewing hateful language has emerged.
A source tells the newspaper having a second video surface is no surprise.
"Unfortunately this is the devastating reality of how Justin has behaved and reveals his attitude toward such a deeply emotive subject," the insider said.
"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."
Bieber has apologised for the first video already, claiming he was too young to grasp the gravity of his words at the time.
"I'm very sorry," he told TMZ. "I take my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and I apologise for offending or hurting anyone with my childish and inexcusable mistake."
