He just made bad decisions...
Usher has posted a statement on Instagram today about the racist comments Justin Bieber made when he was a teenager that have recently surfaced in the form of two videos.
Usher wrote: "As I have watched Justin Bieber navigate difficult waters as a young man, I can tell you that he hasn't always chosen the path of his greatest potential, but he is unequivocally not a racist. What he was 5 years ago was a naive child who did not understand the negative power and degradation that comes from playing with racial slurs. What he is now is a young man faced with an opportunity to become his best self, an example to the millions of kids that follow him to not make the same mistakes."
For those who didn't see the second video of Bieber's racist remarks, you can find it below, courtesy of TMZ. Usher is the latest to support Bieber after Whoopi Goldberg, Mike Tyson, Young Money, Floyd Mayweather and Soulja Boy. Bieber has already apologized for what he said.
