Justin Bieber Addresses 'Hurtful' Racist Videos: 'I Was Uneducated'

Justin Bieber is not afraid to admit his past mistakes, which is always an admirable quality in a celebrity. There's not much worse than when someone famous says something awful and then just doubles down on it instead of admitting they've said something wrong.

Justin Bieber has taken to Instagram to address the videos of him using racial slurs that surfaced a few years ago.

There were multiple videos of a teenage Bieber using the n-word in a few jokes as well as singing a parody version of his song One Less Lonely Girl replacing the word 'girl' with the slur.

Justin also was caught on video joking about joining the Ku Klux Klan.

At the time the videos came out, Justin responded by saying, "I thought it was OK to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn’t realize at the time that it wasn’t funny and that in fact, my actions were continuing the ignorance.”

He's now brought the videos up again in a new Instagram post.

"Racism is still very prevalent."
