Bieber loves black people

Justin Bieber - File

Justin Bieber's former bodyguard insists the singer isn't racist. Old video footage emerged on the weekend of the 'Believe' singer telling a joke and repeatedly using the word nr, but his ex-employee Kenny Hamilton, insists the 20-year-old star is not prejudiced.

He tweeted: "We all make jokes about people's size, look, or race. That doesn't mean it's right, but comedians make millions of dollars profiting off of these jokes. If someone is racist or prejudice; you would know from a person's actions, not because of a joke a 15-year-old says.

"What I do know wholeheartedly is @justinbieber is not prejudice nor is he racist. He wasn't raised that way and his family isn't either." (sic)

Kenny believes Justin - who has since apologised for his remarks - would want to "take back" the comments if he could and insisted the star is not the same person now as he was when the footage was shot.

He added: "Yes, he said some bad jokes, and I know if he could, he would take back what was said. He's grown a lot in five years, and as we all grow, we learn. As a black man I am telling the world that @justinbieber is not a racist. I have known him since he was 12 years old and I know his heart."(sic)

Following the publication of the footage, the Confident singer admitted that he made a "childish and inexcusable mistake" and insisted he has "grown up" since making the remarks five years ago.
