CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – Video of pop star Justin Bieber making a racist joke was released Sunday by British tabloid “The Sun.”

The clip shows Bieber asking why dark-skinned people are afraid of chainsaws, before using heavily-charged racial profanity as a punch-line. Bieber appears to be in his mid-teens when the video was shot.

The tabloid claims representatives of Bieber have attempted to keep the video hidden for a “huge” sum of money, and have known about it for some time.
