WOW! (CNN) reports — Justin Bieber was in serious damage control mode Sunday after a video of him telling a racist joke to friends surfaced.

In the video, posted to TMZ.com, the pop star, then 15, asks: “Why are black people afraid of chain saws?”

He answers his own question: “Run n*****, n*****, n*****, n*****,” he says, imitating the sound of a chain saw. Then he laughs.

TMZ reported it got the video four years ago but decided against posting it then because of Bieber’s age and because he “immediately told his friends what he did was stupid.” It was reportedly shot backstage at a promotional event.
