Justin Bieber has been reflecting upon his past actions and he is apologising for the times he was insensitive. The singer, who has been MIA on the music front to focus on his mental health, took to Instagram to confess he regrets making a racist remark when he was young. For the unversed, the 25-year-old was caught on camera cracking a racist joke when he was a teenager. The singer revisited the controversial incident and apologised for using the N-word in the video. 

He shared a picture that read "STAND AGAINST RACISM" on his social media account and recalled the incident to apologise for the mistake. "When I was young I was uneducated and found myself saying really hurtful things not knowing the power of my words," he admitted. 

"Racism Is still very prevalent and I want to use my voice to remind we are all human being and all of EQUAL VALUE BEFORE GOD!" he added.

The Instagram post comes five years after Justin issued an apology. The singer shared his apology note after TMZ shared the video featuring JB telling the racist joke and fans called him out for his statement. "As a young man, I didn't understand the power of certain words and how they can hurt. I thought it was OK to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn't realise at the time that it wasn't funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance. I take my friendships with people of all cultures very seriously and I apologise for offending or hurting anyone with my childish and inexcusable mistake," he said in the statement. He ensured he wouldn't repeat the mistake.
