Justin Bieber Apologizes After Endorsing Morgan Wallens Music

Justin Bieber is apologizing after he co-signed Morgan Wallen.

Earlier this year, the rising country star was caught on camera saying the N-word. As a result, he was banned from radio, suspended by his label, and had his tour canceled indefinitely.

Despite the headline-making controversy, Bieber shared a post endorsing Wallens album Dangerous: The Double Album. Love this album, he wrote over a screenshot of Wallens cover artwork.

However, the post was quickly deleted, with Bieber claiming he had no idea about Wallens racist remarks. He offered an apology after receiving backlash. honestly i had no idea he was saying those racist things, i deleted it, Im sorry, he commented on a fan page.

He later followed it up with another apology, claiming he was uninformed about the scandal. I had no idea that the guys music I posted was recently found saying racist comments, as you know I dont support or tolerate any sort of racism or discrimination. I had no idea, I sincerely apologize to anyone I offended.

Bieber himself has come under fire for a racially-insensitive video. When he was 14, he changed the lyrics to One Less Lonely Girl to include the N-word, while singing about joining the Ku Klux Klan. He said the video was inspired by a comedian he saw parodying his song online.

On Wednesday, the Peaches singer issued another apology for the offensive comments, saying hes learned from the past.

When I was a kid, i was incredibly ignorant and said some very hurtful racist jokes that clearly were not funny, he wrote. I hurt a lot of people especially the black people in my life but was fortunate enough to have had them educate me on the horrifying origin of the n word. This brings those painful memories back up, I will always take ownership for my ignorance and my past because I know I am not that person. I know that I have apologized for this before but knowing that this is such a sensitive issue I believe its important to bring this up to hopefully educate people who may be ignorant to the topic of racism and how hurtful it is.

Added Bieber, I have so much more to learn and Im grateful for my black brothers and sisters for being patient with me as I have a long way to go.
