Justin Bieber has been ‘non-stop crying’ since his racist videos dropped

Justin Bieber

It has been one terrible week for Team Swag. Justin Bieber has gone into hiding since his first racist-joke video dropped over the weekend. Then a second video surfaced of Bieber singing about killing black people and joining the Ku Klux Klan. Bieber apologized for the first video through a suspiciously lucid PR statement. Everyone knows he didn’t write that letter. Someone drafted it, someone else edited it, and then Scooter Braun probably read it aloud to Biebs, who was lounging in a Sizzurp haze. Swag jerked awake, looked confused, and asked, “Whoo? WHaaa? Swag.”

The second video made it very clear that Bieber’s racist sense of humor wasn’t a one-time thing. He decided to ask for forgiveness by Instagramming some bible verses:

Justin Bieber

This seems like a big week for celebrity apologies. Will any of them stick?

There are a ton of follow-up stories, so let’s do bullet points:

* Us Weekly has an exclusive apology from Swaggy for the second racist video: Facing my mistakes from years ago has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever dealt with. But I feel now that I need to take responsibility for those mistakes and not let them linger. At the end of the day I just need to step up and own what I did.” Say it like you mean it, Biebs.

* Page Six has sources who say “15 or 20 more minutes” of footage exist of Bieber making racist slurs. The footage “explicitly shows this was more than just one regrettable joke.” There is reportedly video of Biebs joking about “black people liking watermelon” and inquiring whether a friend has “parents as black as [rapper] Akon.

* The Mail says Bieber has been “non-stop crying” since the first video surfaced. He reportedly knows that he “knows he needs to take responsibility for his actions” and has been hanging out with his “real friends and his parents.” The subtext here is that Team Swag blames bad influences for Bieber’s racist jokes. Of course.

* Gawker points a finger at TMZ and all but accuses the outlet of blackmail. TMZ was in possession of the footage for four years before it leaked. TMZ has already admitted to receiving the video but claimed they didn’t want to publish it because Biebs was 15 when it happened. Gawker spoked with a Bieber source who believes TMZ held it over Swaggy’s head for years in exchange for exclusive scoops. Huh. If blackmail was really taking place, Bieber should have gone to the FBI long ago.

* Usher (widely known as Swaggy’s mentor) covers Nylon Guys with an interview that happened months ago. Usher admitted there is a Bieber problem: “It’s unfortunate. I hate some of the things I hear. Is it all true? I don’t know. But I will tell you this: Success comes with a price. Every person that has grown up, grows up with something. It ain’t just perfect from the beginning.” Meh.

* Whoopi Goldberg brought up Bieber’s videos on The View. Whoopi says no one should be mad at Swaggy because “N—- doesn’t mean anything in Canada … What I’m saying is that, when you are 15 and you’re someplace where that’s not a word that you have associated with people of colour … they weren’t calling them that.” Bitch, please.

    Get a grip you douche! Actions and consequences.

    • FLORC says:

      Paola
      But Bieber has lived so much of his life without consequences. Could you imagine beeing suddenly punished and judged so harshly for something youve been getting away with for years? And having gotten away with it for so long you don’t realize how awful it really is.
      So, I’m not shocked he’s in hiding or locked in his mansion with all the toys in the world Richy Rich style.

      That said, it’s time he needs to be held accountable as an adult for things he’s done. Even if he was 15 when the 1st video happened it behavior he still maintains as a swaggy adult.

      P.S. Why aren’t we hearing from Usher about this? Has he just removed himself from all things bieber?

      • paola says:

        I am just so sick of all these rich kids wanting to be adults and when things get out of hand and they don’t know how to keep control anymore they play the crying card.
        Crying doesn’t make the world feel sorry for you. Man up and own it. A sincere apology would be much better than a smarmy letter written by an assistant who clearly got some education and can put 2 words together unlike Bieber.

        I’ve read something about Usher on the Daily Mail.
        http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2649934/I-gave-bit-advice-Usher-opens-friend-Justin-Biebers-spiral-control.html

        Basically he’s saying little Justin stands on his own feet and he wants nothing to do with it.

      • Jojoann says:

        Usher is a gentleman. He probably wont pile on in public but I cant believe he isnt super pissed off.

        Also, does anybody else think this explains Biebers affinity to alot of black celebs, from colaborators (CB, Minaj), to mentors (Will Smith), to “bffs” (I forget their names but there are afew). I think this punk always knew that he couldnt sit on the tapes forever, so he and Scooter have spent the last few years stearing towards a more racially diverse career/private life just so they can always use the “me? racist? dont be silly, look who I hang with. Those tapes are old news y’all” line.

        Or maybe he just sees them as ministrels in rthe circus that is his life. Disposable entertainment and maybe also a way to piss off his racist mum. I call this The Kizzy theory, anyone who saw Roots knows exactly what I mean.

      “Justin Beiber Has Been Crying Non-Stop”

      …Did they check his diaper? That is always the first place you should look.

    What the HELL.

    “N—- doesn’t mean anything in Canada … What I’m saying is that, when you are 15 and you’re someplace where that’s not a word that you have associated with people of colour … they weren’t calling them that.”

    WHAT IS CANADA TO (SOME) AMERICAN’S?
    I swear, we’re not some mythical land of a million Bieber’s and year long winters. That word ABSOLUTELY means a lot here.

    • harpreet says:

      It does, while in Canada, African-Canadian usually means the person can have parents who immigrated from Africa (we have large Somali, Nigerian and Kenyan populations), the N-word still has meaning here.

      It is important to remember that slavery did exist in Canada, and that many slaves escaped to Canada to seek freedom when it was abolished here. So the N-word definitely exists here.

    • jaye says:

      I can only shake my head at that statement. Hasn’t she been an apologist for racists or racist behavior in the past?

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Erinn, I agree, that was one of the stupidest remarks I have ever heard of. For the love of Pete, Canada is RIGHT there, Whoopi. Canadians know what the N word means. They don’t live under rocks with earmuffs on. Good Lord.

      • Erinn says:

        Ahaha, and not even that, we have a lot of people who came from America and began living here. My family actually tracks back from Massachusetts (as well as some European nations), so does my fiance’s. Our family was one of the first to form the town in NS in which I live. It’s not like we’re some kind of locked down nation that has no ties to ‘the states’.

    • Lori says:

      I grew up in a really remote area in Canada where I had never met a black person until I was in my teens. But even I grew up knowing you don’t say the N work, that its racist. Because here in Canada we have had TV and Books for quite a while.

    • elisa says:

      Yes, thank you! I’d like Whoopi to come up and explain that to my biracial son who was referred to as a n—- child by an adult in a park in Toronto.

      While we have many great things in Canada (Avonlea, the Leafs, Margaret Atwood, Leonard Cohen, George Eliot Clarke, even the debatable greatness of Canadian Tire money), the absence of racism isn’t one of them, or the ignorance of the meaning of the n-word.

    • LadyMTL says:

      Seriously, what was (is?) Whoopi smoking? I live in Canada and have lived here my entire life and I’ve never ever said the N-word, even when I was “supposed” to, like in acting class.

      Stop making excuses for this little punk brat, Whoopi. If people jump all over Donald Sterling – and justifiably so – why does Bieber get a pass because he was younger when he said it? Bah. Stupidity on all sides, I swear.

    • SnarkySnarkers says:

      I’m so done with Whoopi. Seriously. At first I thought she just liked to play devils advocate but I think she is just an idiot with a soapbox at this point.

    • Feebee says:

      Seriously Whoopi? Didn’t she make some remark about not all rape is rape also? What is she on? Forget Canada, I grew up in New Zealand and we knew the context of the word, even as teenagers. The only consequence was because it wasn’t the “problem” there that it is here I didn’t think too much about it and didn’t think to talk to my kids about it until one them sang it in a Nicki Minaj song.

    • GirlyGIrl says:

      I think Celebs believe their money/fame elevates them and their ill-informed opinions

      Whoopi is just an old stoner burnout, she should shove a sock in it.

      Hey Whoopi, the N-word isn’t used up here. It’s an offensive term that is meant to demean and divide.

      FYI, we generally refer to ourselves as “Canadian-Country-we-came-froms”. (IE Canadian-Irish, or Canadian-Somali).

      Black people I know use the term “Black”. they refer to me as white (even though I look more middle eastern) south Asian people I know call themselves “Brown”. No-one I know thinks these terms are insults, because they are not used to demean, they’re used to describe.

    • Mich says:

      That’s right Whoopi, blame Canada.

    • Izzy says:

      THANK YOU. I was born and raised in Canada, and just two days ago posted a link on my FB wall to the CB story about Swaggy McDiaperpant’s latest racist rant, and publicly THANKED my parents for raising me to know better and be better than that. You know, the same parents that RAISED ME IN CANADA.

      Oh, that Whoopi asshat makes me stabby. (Thanks OKitt for letting me borrow the reference.) I’m so mad! I think I’ll go yell at a glass of water now…

    • Belle Epoch says:

      What is wrong with Whoopi? She also defended Vick with the dog killing. Cultural relativism doesn’t mean Canada!

    • lucy2 says:

      Whoopi has truly lost it. After her “it’s not RAPE rape” comments, I didn’t think she could go any lower. I guess by her thinking, because he’s Canadian (??), he’s not a RACIST racist? Ugh, the stupid.

    • kri says:

      OMG!! What is Goldberg saying?!! WTF. And now that degenerate toddler is whipping out a Bible as his answer to his bullshit? Oh, a thunderbolt, my queendom for a thunderbolt!!

    • BamBam says:

      Whoopi has also said its ok for afro american’s to use the N word, but never caucasians, its all too confusing to keep up it all. Biebs is young & stupid and sheltered by his money and entourage, someone should toss him to the real world for grown ups.

    • delorb says:

      Whoopi needs to sit the fork down and shut the fork up.

    • Pepsi Presents...Coke says:

      I frequently wonder where it is exactly that people get their strange ideas about Canada, it’s so much more quaint in that version than the reality of this place. But outside characterizations that are somewhat baffling to said nation’s inhabitants are the fate of every country, I suppose. If it has to go one way or the other, you can certainly do worse than people thinking that you’re nicer than is fact, but no, this isn’t Shangri-La. And, as a true maple sucker I can verify that the N-word does have just as much import here as it does in America. Unfortunately, racism does not observe the barrier of the 49th parallel and every name you be called in New York City you could be called in Toronto. No Rob Ford joke required and ideally, no assumptions about the the social mores of a country with which you aren’t intimately familiar required either: neither ends satisfactorily.

  3. Lindy79 says:

    Boo effin Hoo.

    And if I read one more “he was only 15..waaaaah” if he was 15 in 1963 Mississippi then it could be attributed to his surroundings and era but he was 15 what….6 years ago so nope this is not ok.

    He can go f*ck himself with his bible quotes too.
    Living the way he lives and the lack of regard and respect he shows people over and over again shows he has f*ck all humility so knock it off with the wheeling out of God because he’s been caught…no.

    • Rae says:

      And the congregation said AMEN. I am so sick of this mewling little puke disrespecting pretty much EVERYONE and treating people like crap, then busting out the bible to show that inside he’s a good little Christian. Being a Christian isn’t about talking the talk; it’s walking the walk. Which he obviously knows nothing about.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Exactly! I am not religious, but I find his biblical insincerity to be completely awful. He always hides behind Christianity after he has treated his fellow human beings in terrible ways. It is just so wrong that he focuses on the Jesus/Forgiveness aspect, but then completely ignores the fact that Jesus also taught that people should be kind and generous to your fellow man. I just have no respect for Baby Beibs.

    • zinjojo says:

      YES to this comment in every way! I grew up in Texas in the 60s & 70s and certainly heard the word, but I can remember my parents telling me from a very young age that it was racist, derogatory and that I should NEVER use it. I now have a 15 y.o. son who wouldn’t even think of using a slur against someone, so this age excuse is b.s.

      And if he’s hanging out with his parents, well that’s still a big part of the problem since neither of his parents seem to have more than a couple of brain cells between them. Ignorant, uneducated and happy to stay that way has resulted in their entitled, obnoxious brat.

      And just stop with the bible verses. Go away. Go meditate, feed the homeless, do something for someone other than yourself (and don’t publicize it). Just go learn something!
      /rant over now.

    • FLORC says:

      I say let him bust out the bible when he’s cornered. It’s a great way to see the inner subtext of character. If the bible versus are about protection from persecution he’s saying he’s being wronged and God will protect him from evildoers. If it’s about redemption and humility i’d believe he’s on the correct path. Still, using bible versus on social med irks me terribly.

      God and religion are not the trump cards you only play when you’ve been caught.

      • Lindy79 says:

        This is very true!

        I doubt he’s genuinely on a redemption path, more like a “quick quote some Jesus to show I am a good person and I am righteous” when in reality any halfwit knows that there are some truly evil people in the world who do exactly the same thing. Anything can be twisted and manipulated to suit your own ends and that’s exactly what he’s doing.

        And I can’t even with the effort required to put a photo of a page in a book on instagram..he is truly, truly sorry (!)

      • Tiffany :) says:

        “God and religion are not the trump cards you only play when you’ve been caught. ”

        I totally agree. Well said.

    • lauren says:

      Well said Lindy79. I totally agree!

    • lucy2 says:

      The Bible verse stuff annoys me too, he’s such a hypocrite. He just throws it out there when he’s in trouble and needs some “wholesome” PR.

    • Monksolo says:

      He wasn’t “only 15″ when he was egging someone’s house, drag-racing, and consorting with hookers last year.

  4. break says:

    This headline made me do a spit take laugh.
    Very rare!

  5. Nerd Alert says:

    Allow me to employ a tired cliche:

    Awwwwww poor Bieber!

    NOT.

  6. Ollyholly says:

    Wow, Whoopie is now on my sh-t list! The N word is the N word EVERYWHERE, and 15 is old enough to know what racism is. When I was a bratty little 15 year old, sure I said sh-tty things, but I never said racist things. There’s a difference.

  7. break says:

    Also, I live in Canada, and the N word is definitely a hateful, racial slur up here. This is widespread knowledge.

  8. Sam says:

    He isn’t upset that he said it. He’s upset that he got caught. If he was really upset about the comments, then let TMZ leak it and address it head-on by saying you were young, stupid and have matured as a person since then.

    Why can’t he take a page from Jonah Hill? I generally dislike Hill, but his apology worked because he made no excuses (even though he was being harassed by the paps) and owned what he did. No excuses. Bieber just needs to own this stuff. The constant trickle of this stuff makes him look worse.

  9. Talie says:

    TMZ is really the most annoying in all of this… of course, they were holding him hostage over these tapes. As if they care about reputations being ruined whether someone is 15 or 85.

    I guess as long as he keeps making money for the urban music community, none of them will come out against him. So sad to see so many of these artists be sell outs like that.

    • Leona says:

      Oh please with the blackmail angle. Talk about a red herring. I suppose we are supposed to be so disgusted with TMZ that we forget that Justin brought this on himself? I mean no racism would mean no blackmail, no? Screw him. I hope he has been extorted till Kingdom come. And I hope he continues to be squeezed for more only for the damaging info to come out anyway. He deserves nothing less that silly dickhead.

    • delorb says:

      I don’t think TMZ was blackmailing him. He didn’t give them exclusives. Yeah, they followed him 24/7 and charted his bowel-movements, but he kept them at arms length. The Beliebers hated TMZ.

      No, they sat on it because they bought the lie that he was just a kid who didn’t know any better. They are still debating that nonsense. Harvey is many things, but I think he genuinely thought he would have ruined this young man’s career before it ever got started, and he didn’t want to be held responsible for that.

  10. Original Tessa says:

    He should be sorry, but crying isn’t going to do any good. It just means he’s feeling sorry for himself. He’s making this about him. He’s making himself a victim in his own scandal. He was 15, surrounded by adults laughing and egging him on. I for one am willing to hear him out and forgive. But if he continues to be a victim, I will lose patience.

  11. Kiddo says:

    Ms. Whoopie “Rape-rape” should be aware that the KKK doesn’t have a different meaning/agenda in different parts of the world. I can understand if she feels compassion for the Biebs, or has forgiven him, but her excuses are always absurd. Too much time spent with Barbara-there’s-no-celebrity-ass-I-wouldn’t-kiss-Walters, I guess.

  12. cro-girl says:

    Whoa.

    Whoopie… you have it wrong. So wrong I don’t even understand what you’re saying. Is she saying it doesn’t mean the same thing in Canada because we didn’t have slavery? We did, it was abolished in 1833 as opposed to America’s 1865. It wasn’t on the same scale and it was mostly Native populations that were enslaved but that’s a bit irrelevant.

    What Whoopie?! Just what?!?!

  13. Ruyana says:

    The thing that ticks me off the most about Baby Beebs is the way he uses his faux Christianity as an eraser. You can’t act like an animal nonstop and then wave a Bible verse as a “get out of jail free” card. If you feel true remorse you change your ways, or at least try to. He just keeps on being a teeny-weeny d*ck. He has demonstrated over and over that he has zero respect for anyone other than himself. Actually I don’t think he respects himself, he just thinks everyone else is so much lower than he is that he can treat them badly without consequence.

    I really hope all his hangers-on drain away every last drop of his money. Then bye-bye Daddy Jeremy and everyone else.

  14. Renee says:

    Aw….somebody call the wahmbulance!!!! He’s upset he’s going to lose his money, that’s all that’s about. F*ck this piece of trash. And f*ck Whoopi too, that woman is SO IGNORANT and says such STOOPID (not even stupid, that’s how dumb her comments are) about race, racism and sexual abuse that she needs to move towards the front of the line for the trip on rocket that goes one way to the sun.

    I am Canadian and I can assure you that that word has EXACTLY the same connotations as it does in the States, the only difference is that black Canadians don’t fling it around in everyday speech to the same extent that it is used by black people in the States. It’s totally used to humiliate, insult and degrade blacks in Canada. I know from being on the receiving end of it. I completely agree with the last line of this story ( I actually laughed out loud when I read it). GMAFB.

  15. Reece says:

    I think I’m actually more PO’ed at Whoopi than The Brat. I expect ignorance and idiocy from It (it’s not by any means excused nevertheless it is still expected) but from her….? I don’t have the words, in this moment.

  16. Mia4S says:

    Beiber is an ignorant little idiot, raised by ignorant idiots. I can’t do much but roll my eyes at this point.

    Whoopi has lost her mind. It’s Canada Whoopi, not Narnia. We know what it means, we know what racism is, and sadly we also have trash like the Beiber bunch living here too. I get that many Americans don’t know much about Canada (and don’t care), that’s fine with me actually. Yet many insist on talking about a place they know nothing about…and sound like idiots doing it.

  17. mazzie says:

    Oh my god. We do know and do not use the N-word. What does Whoopi think Canada is?

  18. Skins says:

    This is so great. Made even better by the fact that he is desperately trying to be black nowadays. Hopefully all of his black buddies like lil this and lil that will dump him how, or better yet, beat his ass.

  19. eliza says:

    I am tired of apologists citing his age as an excuse for these jokes and comments. I remember being 14-15 very well and I assure you, I KNEW how awful that word was and never would have dreamed of using it anymore then as I would not now.

    I have also read that when he was 14, Usher sat him down and discussed the use of the word and it’s history. When he was 15, the word was still in his vocabulary.

    Of course this little fraud who sees “no color” is non-stop crying because all of the people who are financially dependent on him are probably losing their crap over him potentially ruining his career.

    I am also tired of people saying “He has black friends”. Hmmmm many racists do as a means to deflect from their true personalities. The low level rappers supporting him are doing so because they make money off of him or get perks for being his “friend”.

    Goldberg has really lost her mind BUT hey, rant on about how the word means nothing in Canada. It only confirms how idiotic she truly is.

      Exactly.

      The fact that he mentions the KKK in the video shows that he knew the history of that word.

  20. Dragonlady sakura says:

    I’ve been called the N word only once in my life . so instead of getting mad, I told the racist jerk I pity him and would pray for his soul because God doesn’t like ugly! We must pity this troubled young idiot people.

  21. pleaseicu says:

    Whoopie and all the other apologists can have a seat. Goodness. Where in the world does the phrase “killing N-words and joining the KKK” have any other meaning than “killing N-words and joining the KKK”? Different meaning in Canada my arse.

    Everyone is focusing on his use of the N-word, which is offensive and gross, but they’re all ignoring that he was joking about KILLING people and joining the KKK!

    One of his friends is flat out telling him to STOP and not go there in one of the videos, so this age excuse and it doesn’t mean the same thing blah,blah, blah excuse doesn’t work for me since Bieber was around at least one person who knew better, knew it was wrong, and told him to STOP because it was wrong. And Bieber still did it!

    Yeah, I did stupid things at 14-15…like staying out past curfew, talking back to my mom, or having a beer at a party when I was 15…I never once in my life, at 14 or otherwise, called anyone the N-word or joked about killing anyone and joining a white supremacist hate group afterwords! I can’t ever imagine thinking that way at any age. That’s not just age at work. That’s a cultivated prejudiced mentality and attitude that’s taught in the home or from someone of influence in his life.

    And why do I really think the thing Beebs is most sad about is that he got caught, not that he said those things in multiple videos?

    • the original bellaluna says:

      I had the misfortune of going to Jr and High school with some of Metzger’s kids. One day his son tried to organize a white supremacy rally in the quad. All the Native Americans, Hispanics, and African Americans showed up instead. It was hysterical! He didn’t know what to do with himself.

      His daughter, on the other hand, HATED her father’s ideals.

  22. bettyrose says:

    What the H*&L is wrong with Whoopi Goldberg? She can’t run fast enough to a sound byte saying something stupid in defense of dirtbags. She used to be this amazing comedian like a thousand years ago, and now she’s a professional ass-kisser. Is the real Whoopi being held captive somewhere while this Stepford robot imitation of her walks around?

  23. AryaMartell says:

    Whoopi is seriously drunk and once again proves she’s ignorant. I’m a black Canadian and my ancestry can be traced back to the 1850s when a slave woman escaped the south and came to Canada with her baby. Like many places where slavery was outlawed, prejudices and racism existed and discrimination was alive and well in Toronto, where the woman settled. Racism still exists in Canada, I think a little more so these days as I think there’s a bit of a freakout due to the end of “white privilege” in Canada and the Tories being jackasses, nothing new there. Fortunately I was raised in an area where no one would have ever thought to have used the N word towards me without getting in deep trouble and it never happened. The N word means the same thing here that it does everywhere else.

    As far as Bieber goes, I can see TMZ hanging this over his head. Harvey Levin is the shadiest dude ever. I refuse to visit TMZ as it is clear he’s got a major racket going on with celebrity PR. They should have released this story ages ago. Bieber is I’m sure crying because he knows it’s officially over for him. Like Donnie, the Backstreet Boys, and all others before him his time has come and his career has crashed. With the way he has spent money, he’ll become Danny Bonaduce and that other guy from the 70s…damn can’t remember his name…soon and be begging for scraps.

  24. ToodySezHey says:

    Whoopi Goldberg has lost her damn mind. First she excused Mel Gibson when he hoped his ex would get “raped by a pack of n****ers”. Now this bs. I’m done with that trick.

  25. Miss M says:

    Is he genuinely sad he said it or he is sad because he may lose his ” street cred”?!

  26. Ag says:

    “bitch please” sums it up perfectly. bieber needs to just go away for a while.

  27. nicegirl says:

    GLOBALLY, hate is hate. The N word is the N word. Violence is wrong. We still have questions about this? Sad

  28. Chris says:

    Have any celebrities actually come out and slammed him yet? All we’re hearing from is celebrity apologists.

  29. Secret says:

    I live in Stratford, Ontario Canada . I moved here from a larger city where I learned racism was wrong and you don’t use that word. When I moved here as an adult, I found casual racism among the people I hung around with. I can totally see how Beiber got in trouble with these words. If people had taped some of the people I hang around with 10 years ago, there’d be some bad videos too. It seems because there’s a big farming community, it’s okay to say things because they are rednecks. Rest assured a couple of racist remarks that were challenged shut down the people saying stuff- at least in my presence.

  30. Feebee says:

    Someone is confusing the words crying and whining, cos non stop crying I can’t believe, non stop whining on the other hand…….

    This guy has TERRIBLE advisers, bunch of absolute AMATEURS. They should have been way out in front of this, or even frantically sweeping up behind it. I know is hard when the raw material is so shitty but really, how hard is a written apology statement preferably without excuses or bible references, then apology tour, hopefully showing some sort of charm and/or sincerity, then going away for quite a while.

  31. the original bellaluna says:

    How can a woman who played Medgar Evers’ wife not fully comprehend that word and all the awfulness associated with it?

    “N—- doesn’t mean anything in Canada.”

    As a Canadian, I am mortified and stunned at Whoopi’s ignorance. In Canada the N-word means exactly what it does in the U.S. It is a racial slur, one of the worst in existence, and every Canadian knows that.

  33. msw says:

    Omg. I hadn’t even heard of that second video.

    This kid is broken. I bet he feels like sh!t all the time. Kid can’t deal.

    And Whoopi, seriously, WTF.

  34. word says:

    Whoopie Goldberg is an idiot for her comments about Canada. I can’t even…

  35. Patty Cake says:

    I know Justin Timberlake is glad he dodged the bullet of signing Biebs to his label. I remember a few years back when Bieber and Scooter Braun came on the radio show “The Bert Show”. Any way, Braun was talking about how both Bieber auditioned for Justin and Usher, separately of course, because he was trying to get a record deal. Anyway, they said that both artist wanted to sign him, but Usher offered him the better deal. I’ll bet Usher is regretting the Hell out of that decision now. Usher is going to be known as that stupid guy that gave that racist artist a chance. Usher is eventually going to have to make a statement because, specifically black folks, are going to be interested in knowing if Usher knew about those tapes. Talk about selling your soul to the devil for a quick buck.

  36. Patty Cake says:

    I’m officially referring to Bieber as Sir Swag A lot, lmao.

    “Whoo? WHaaa? Swag.” Bitch, please.

    I’m dying laughing Bedhead. Oh gosh. ROTFLMAO

  37. Izzy says:

    Dear Bedhead,

    Thank you for posting that picture (again) of Swaggy McDiaperpants being put in his carseat by his big, bad bodyguard.

    Sincerely,
    The Bitch Crew

    Whoopi has to be one of the most ignorant people on the planet. Yes most Canadians are not as stuck on race as it seems to be for some in America but they so KNOW what the N word is and all of it’s meaning. This woman never has anything good to say about anything and is always defending A-holes. What’s wrong with her?

    • Sooloo says:

      Cool sentiment, but please, “MOST Canadians” are not as stuck on race? As if anyone could know. The US, or any other country for that matter, does not have a monopoly on ignorant people and prejudice, just as Canada does not have a monopoly on enlightened, forward-thinking people. There are idiots everywhere, so it does no one any good to pretend this is a travesty localized to one area or that the majority of people don’t think a certain way because it’s a discredit to the work that still needs to be done to eradicate ignorance. I’m sure for every one of those “some” in the US who are stuck on race, there is one who feels exactly the same in Canada…

  39. Deb says:

    I must be one sadistic bitch, because the mental of picture of Bieber crying non-stop puts a smile on my face. Shame on me.

  40. Adrien says:

    Suppose Whoopi was right that it does not mean anything in Canada, what does that teach young Canadians? That it’s alright to say the hateful word coz culturally it absolves them? WTH, Whoopi! That’s an irresponsible statement.

  41. MissTrial says:

    I, too , have been crying “nonstop” — for the future–ever since people like Bieber have found celebrity status.

    Own your words ‘kid’ and move forward.

  42. moo says:

    Oh bullshit!! He’s completely ignorant and therefore incapable to any remorse! He’s just worried about his money machine…. they’re all just another Lohan family if you ask me!

  43. LaurieH says:

    I want to make sure I understand Whoopi: Paula Deen says the ‘N’ word and loses her career. Donald Sterling doesn’t say the ‘N’ word, but makes negative statements about African Americans, and loses an NBA team. Justin Bieber repeatedly uses the ‘N’ word and other racial stereotypes and we’re supposed to excuse him because he’s from Canada???

  44. I Choose Me says:

    WTF Whoopi. Does she even hear what comes out of her mouth sometimes. From it wasn’t rape, rape re: the Polanski case, to this sh-t?!

    I expect Beiber not to have any sense but has Whoopi lost her damn mind?

  45. anna says:

    Can someone get Whoopi Goldberg a whole row of seats to take? That word is not acceptable and hasn’t been for a long time. It’s not like the further north you go the less offensive that word gets.

    But Bieber… What a little shithead. His parents should be ashamed of both him and themselves. Because he’ll treat everyone like shit and then try to hide behind Jesus. The day will come when he won’t be so famous and he’ll say the wrong thing to the wrong person and get a metaphorical (or literal. I’m not picky) ass-whooping. I, for one, hope it’s soon.

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

  47. Vilodemeanus says:

    The TMZ situation is legit, as for the FBI being called TMZ wasn’t demanding money, or anything like that. What TMZ did was imply that it would be a really good thing for him to drop by and do shows and act like he really liked the TMZ guys. They were in essence strong arming a kid. A kid I don’t like and think is a no talent jerk, but TMZ is terrible for making him perform for them when they wanted him to and comply for photo ops. Eventually Scooter said, let the chips fall where they may because this is not going to end unless we just say no and they play the videos to punish little Mr. Raised by White Trash and get it over with. Scooter knew they were going to drop the videos at a future date anyway. So no crime, but completely scummy for TMZ to do. Surprise, Harvey Levin is a scumbag.
    Beibs isn’t the only TMZ is doing this to. It makes you look at the people who are TMZ friendly in a whole other way.

  48. Jana says:

    That little piss ant has needed a comeuppance for years~~he needs to grow up and stop acting like such a huge douche.

  49. Nightykickedout says:

    So, you’re commenting on what he did when he was 14 years old?
    I know he’s a d*bag, but at the age of 14, I think we’re all pretty idiotic, I suppose..
    He’s still pretty idiotic, but he was 14 at the time, for God’s sake…

    If it was a kid you’d like as a singer or actor, you’d be apologizing him, young, only 14; but because the whole world hates (don’t like him either) you’re going all frantic… ok

  50. SK says:

    You know what? I can’t stand this kid. I think he needs to learn some sharp lessons. However, this whole scenario makes me incredibly uncomfortable. From what I understand, Bieber grew up in a low-income household with a young single mother who was a super religious, conservative type. The attitudes he had at that young age about other races and religions most likely reflected the attitudes of those who raised him. He does not seem to be a racist person as an adult. I will not judge him for a bunch of stupid, ignorant crap he said when he was in his early teens. For god’s sake; people change! They better themselves. Their ignorance can be exposed to them, understood, and overcome. If we eternally judged people on what they were like as teenagers; wow… That would be rough! A lot of teens say awful things not understanding WHY they are so terrible and hurtful. Teenagers have always pushed boundaries. That doesn’t mean they can’t change their opinions as they grow and learn. So yeah; this whole story makes me squeamish. Judge Bieber for the shit he does now; not this stuff from when he was a young, ignorant child.

    • Jayna says:

      I don’t think he’s racist now at all. He’s hung with black people as his friends for years now. It’s obvious at that age he grew up hearing such stuff from mom and other family members, etc. and felt comfortable with those words. I think he’s evolved past such way of thinking and using words like that from five to six years ago, but too bad he didn’t evolve in other way.s Because is a big douche, though, who has been acting not just like a rude punk but entitled, and that’s as a 19-year-old and 20-year-old. His smug attitude in that video deposition and the way he spoke to the court reporter was disgusting.

      But all is well, folks, because he’s posting Bible scripture on twitter and he’s found Jesus again and was baptized in his tub this week.
