Justin Bieber is in the news… again. After all this alleged crimes of a DUI, vandalizing, and potential assault that you would think he would want to stay out of the news for quite a while. Nope.
The 20 year old is in the news today about apologizing for saying a racial joke back when he was 14 years old. TMZ got wind of this statement Bieber said in a video 6 years ago, but didn’t air it or tell anyone because they felt like Bieber was sincerely sorry.
One, why would Bieber want to be in the news again with something that will damage his reputation more than its already damaged?
Two, why is this just now surfacing?
Three, was there something going on with Bieber and TMZ? Why didn’t they air it?
It says in an article by CNN that Bieber didn’t want people to think he was a racist at 14 years old, and that he was a kid and didn’t know any better. This kind of reminds me of the Paula Dean story when he was caught saying a racial comment like 20 years ago and had to answer for her actions within the last couple years. Is that even fair? Why withhold all these things?
These news stories don’t help anything. If there are comments being made a long time ago and they surface today, I don’t think its as pressing and worth writing a news story about it. There are other important things to write and research about.
There was a note on the CNN news page that mentioned that over 200,000 people have signed the petition to deport Justin Bieber back to Canada, but the White House is not issuing a comment.
Honestly, there are other important things to be petitioning, there are more pressing news stories that should be written and spread, and better things to be doing with our time that we have so little of.
