Justin Bieber has issued a second apology after claims he used the n-word and joked about joining the Ku Klux Klan.
The 20-year-old said he needed to “take responsibility” for his mistakes and “not let them linger”.
Justin Bieber then posted Bible verses on Instagram, which apparently ask for forgiveness.
Earlier this week Justin Bieber said sorry for another video in which he made a racist joke that he called a “childish and inexcusable mistake”.
Justin Bieber’s apology comes after The Sun published a clip where he changed the words of his hit One Less Lonely Girl to include the n-word.
Speaking to The Sun from Mexico, Justin Bieber said that facing up to the mistakes of his past was one of the hardest things he had ever had to deal with.
He said he did not want his fans to think he was condoning racism.
“I just hope that the next 14-year-old kid who doesn’t understand the power of these words does not make the same mistakes I made years ago,” he said.
“At the end of the day I just need to step up and own what I did. Once again, I am sorry for all those I have let down and offended.”
The Bible verses he posted on Instagram included 1 John 1:7, which reads: “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.”
The most recent 24-second clip reportedly showed Justin Bieber giggling several times as he changes the words of the song One Less Lonely Girl, which he co-wrote with Usher.
He also referred to joining the Ku Klux Klan, a white supremacist group based mainly in the US.
It’s claimed that the sound of girls laughing can be heard during the video, which is said to have been filmed shortly after Justin Bieber was signed to the Raymond Braun Media Group.
