Justin Bieber has issued another apology after the release of a second video

He then posted passages from the Bible on his Instagram account, which apparently ask for forgiveness.Earlier this week, Justin apologised after another video of him emerged in which he made a racist joke, calling it a "childish and inexcusable mistake".This second apology comes after the Sun published a clip showing him changing the lyrics of his hit One Less Lonely Girl to include a racial offensive term.

Following his apology, Justin Bieber shared this passage on Instagram

Speaking to the newspaper from Mexico, Justin said he had to face up to the mistakes of his past. "I just hope that the next 14-year-old kid who doesn't understand the power of these words does not make the same mistakes I did years ago," he said."At the end of the day I just need to step up and own what I did. Once again, I am sorry for all those I have let down and offended." Both of the videos – the first published on Monday, the second on Wednesday – appear to date back five years, during the shooting of his documentary Never Say Never.

Justin's manager Scooter Braun has since shared an Instagram photo of an inspirational quote. "Some mistakes have no excuses," it reads. "They are just wrong. But how a man reacts to those mistakes… How he owns it and learns from it… That defines him more than the mistake itself."
