Videos of a teenage Justin Bieber using the "N" word and making racist jokes about black people leaked this week. The Biebs issued an apology for his behavior when he was younger and owned up to it. Now, Mack Maine of Young Money and Biebs' friend Lil' Za, who crashed at Biebs' mansion for months, have publicly shown support for The Biebs.
So have Usher, Whoopi Goldberg and Mike Tyson. Maine said that The Biebs is not a bad person, that he treats people with respect and noted that young people make jokes all the time without realizing the consequences of their words.
Below is Lil Za's Instagram post.
He captioned it: "This guy right here changed my life and others in many ways. A true brother and friend, you're appreciated and loved by all of us and millions of fans. to bad I can't be with you to turn up with you and pops for his birthday. nxt time ! See you soon luv you bro!"
Usher also broke his silence, as Bieber's mentor.
He said, "It's unfortunate. I hate some of the things I hear. Is it all true? I don't know. But I will tell you this: success comes with a price. Every person that has grown up, grows up with something. It ain't just perfect from the beginning…I gave every bit of advice and always told him it was up to him if he really wanted this. Now that he has it, as an adult, it's his to manage. Do I turn my head in shame based off of what I see, what I know? Nah, I don't because it's all part of life's process. Am I in it with him? Yeah."
And Whoopi Goldberg mentioned that the rap world uses the "N" word all the time and Tyson also agreed with her.
What do you think of this situation, this public support and how The Biebs has handled it?
