Justin Bieber recently found himself again in the target of social media critics after having published tweets from the past in which he commented on ethnic minorities.
The star went to his Twitter earlier this week to say he wanted to play a role in the fight against racism, however, some people online pointed out things he said in the past.
In his Instagram account on Tuesday, Justin stated that at the time of his old tweets, he was "uneducated,quot; and would use particular words without really knowing what they wanted to say or how they made others feel. Bieber added that he wanted to use his voice to remind others that everyone is equal before God.
In another post, the star explained that he was making new goals before heading to Christmas holidays. The star states that he wanted to commit to the idea of owning all his deficiencies and doing something about it.
As previously reported, Justin was criticized in 2014 when a video of him appeared using the word N for a racist joke. Page Six reported in 2014 that Justin was a teenager when the video was created. After the violent reaction, he went to ask Will Smith and Usher for help.
"He is now a 20-year-old who took responsibility," said his representative at the time. In addition, other online videos were shown in which the singer made more racist jokes, including a song in which he changed the lyrics to "a less lonely n * gger,quot;, and also joked about becoming a member of the Ku Klux Klan.
First reported by CNN, the singer issued a statement in which he explained that he was unaware of the impact of his words, as well as his influence on the world and the younger generations. At that time, the artist stated that he realized that he was only promoting ignorance and racial insensitivity.
This happens after Justin Bieber and his wife, Hailey Bieber, got married at a wedding ceremony during the summer months. The two Biebers met at a hotel in South Carolina and officially married their friends and family after obtaining their marriage license in September 2018.
