The video of a then 15-year-old Justin Bieber saying the N-word has shocked a lot of people.
But now Bieber’s former bodyguard has said that Justin is ‘not’ a racist.
Kenny Hamilton, is a black man and has spend hours with the teen singer protecting him from crazy fans and over the weekend he took to Twitter to decent Justin.
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.
He will always be criticized and judged every day of his life by people who only know him because of blogs or the press. That won’t change
Yes he said some bad jokes and I know if he could he would take back what was said. He’s grown a lot in 5 years and as we all grow we learn
What I do know whole heartedly is @justinbieber is not prejudice nor is he racist. He wasn’t raised that way and his family isn’t either.
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…
…of these jokes. If someone is racist or prejudice you would know from a persons actions. Not because of a joke a 15 year old says.
If anyone knows anything about Bieber it’s his bodyguard who spends 24/7 with him.
