Justin Bieber shared a photo of Morgan Wallen with a post that read, “Love this album.” He then quickly deleted it from Instagram after receiving backlash in light of Wallen’s use of the N-word earlier this year.
Bieber issued an apology, writing that he was unaware of the controversy. He said, “I had no idea that the guy whose music I posted, was recently found saying racist comments. As you know I don't support or tolerate any sort of racism or discrimination. I had no idea, I sincerely apologize to anyone I offended.”
Bieber admitted that he has also said some “incredibly ignorant” things in the past and then posted: “I believe it's important to bring this up to hopefully educate people who may be ignorant to the topic of racism and how hurtful it is.”
