Justin Bieber, who was the subject of controversy a few years back when old videos surfaced of him using the n-word, has shared a public message calling for everyone to take a "stand against racism."
In the caption of an Instagram post shared late Tuesday, Bieber referenced those videos and said he wants to use his ever-expanding platform to offer a message of condemnation for such acts.
"When I was young I was uneducated and found myself saying really hurtful things not knowing the power of my words," Bieber wrote. "Racism is still very prevalent and I want to use my voice to remind we are all human [beings] and all of equal value before God."
Bieber shared a similar message, albeit without referencing those old videos, back in 2017. Showing support for Black Lives Matter activists, Bieber said at the time that racism was "more prevalent now than I have ever seen in my lifetime."
Meanwhile, Justin and Hailey Bieber announced earlier this week that they had curated an art auction benefitting LIFT Los Angeles and Inner-City Arts. Click here for more info.
