A video has emerged showing Justin Bieber using the n-word in a racist joke.
The footage, which was obtained by The Sun, was filmed for his Never Say Never documentary in 2011.
It shows the Bieber smiling, sitting on a sofa with friends when he says: “Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?”.
The singer, who is now 20, then finished his joke by making the noise of the chainsaw and repeating “Run n*****” five times.
Someone who cannot be seen on camera says: “Don’t even say it. Don’t say it.” A female voice then says: “You could say motorcycle too right?”.
The newspaper claims some people around Bieber have known about the clip for some time, and have spent money keeping it out of the public.
