Intro for June 5, 2014
More Justin Bieber saying racist sh-t videos have surfaced. He apologised the other day. He’s apologised again, telling the UK Sun that:
“Facing my mistakes from years ago has been one of the hardest things I've ever dealt with. But I feel now that I need to take responsibility for those mistakes and not let them linger. At the end of the day, I just need to step up and own what I did.”
Isn’t it so brave that he had to open his statement with how HARD IT IS FOR HIM???
JB is being shamed, as he should be, for behaving like a bigot f-ck. But you know who else should be shamed? The people who are laughing along with him, the people in his life who encouraged this in him. After all, he had to have learned from somewhere, from someone. Ignorance is contagious.
You know what I’ve been hearing a lot? People keep asking if should he be held accountable for something he did when he was 14, 15 years old. Why is this even a question? YES, he should be held accountable – at any age. That’s how we LEARN. Holding someone accountable doesn’t mean they can’t be forgiven. But accountability has to be the first step, non?
Yours in gossip,
