A video of 15-year-old Justin Bieber telling a racist joke and using the n-word has been leaked by a British tabloid.
Available to Sun+ subscribers — and published on TMZ — the clip shows the young pop star sitting with friends when he begins his joke: “Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?”
Don’t even say it,” someone warns. His punchline, which he repeats several times while making chainsaw sounds: “Run, n—-r.”
Sun+ claims Bieber tried to buy the video “for a huge sum of money” to keep it from going public. It was reportedly recorded during the making of his 2011 concert documentary, Never Say Never.
TMZ reports it obtained the footage four years ago, but decided not to publish it “in large part because he was 15 and immediately told his friends what he did was stupid.”
