Justin Bieber shouted out to Morgan Wallen on his Insta stories saying how much he “loved” Morgan’s Dangerous album Wednesday (8/4) then he learned of Wallen’s racial slur (which happened back in February, as most of America is well aware), and he quickly apologized to fans and retracted his statement.
Justin has since deleted the post. He wrote a new Instagram story note to his “Beliebers,” further apologizing for promoting Wallen’s album. He said in part, “I had no idea that the guy’s music I posted was recently found saying racist comments. As you know, I don’t support or tolerate any sort of racism or discrimination. I had no idea, I sincerely apologize to anyone I offended.”
Bieber himself used the N-word in a racist joke back when he was 15-years-old in 2014. He quickly apologized. A few days later, another video of a younger Bieber came out also capturing him using the slur. He issued an apology for the second video, too, saying he wanted to take responsibility for his mistakes.
Justin reflected on his own past on Wednesday (8/4) following his deleting the post about Wallen.
Not only did he apologize again for the old videos he was in, but he attempted to use his platform to “hopefully educate people who may be ignorant to the topic of racism and how hurtful it is.”
In a third post, Bieber wrote, “I have so much more to learn, and I’m grateful for my black brothers and sisters for being patient with me as I have a long way to go.”
Bieber posted motivational words in his latest Instagram post.
