It seems like people are really reaching for something to get mad at Justin Bieber about. A video from five years ago was just leaked, showing the then 15-year-old Biebz telling a two racist jokes, one of which included the n-word.

The singer’s old bodyguard, Kenny Hamilton, who happens to be black, is coming to his former client’s defense. “We all make jokes about people’s size, look, or race. That doesn’t mean it’s right but comedians make millions of dollars profiting off these jokes,” Hamilton tweeted. “If someone is racist or prejudice you would know from a persons actions. Not because of a joke a 15 year old says. Yes he said some bad jokes and I know if he could he would take back what was said.” He then added, “As a black man I am telling the world that @justinbieber is not a racist. I have known him since he was 12 years old and I know his heart.”

Bieber responded to the video himself in a statement, referring to his words as “reckless and immature. “As a kid, I didn’t understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt,” he said. “I thought it was ok to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn’t realize at the time that it wasn’t funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance,” he said. “Thanks to friends and family I learned from my mistakes and grew up and apologized for those wrongs. Now that these mistakes from the past have become public I need to apologize again to all those I have offended. I’m very sorry.” He went on, but we won’t bore you. Basically: he’s really really really really sorry. He was young, he’s really sorry. He’s really REALLY sorry. About the crack, not his lack of musical talent. So there’s that.
