A five-year-old video of Justin Bieber has surfaced, showing the then 14-year-old pop star singing a racist parody of one of his hit songs.

Bieber and his team released the video to TMZ, after a video of the star telling a racist joke when he was younger was leaked last week.

In the video, a laughing Bieber sings “one less lonely n*****, there will be one less  n*****. If I kill you, I’ll be part of the KKK.” The lyrics are a racist spin on Bieber’s song “One Less Lonely Girl.”

TMZ reports that Bieber showed the video to Usher and Will Smith years ago, and the two showed him videos that demonstrated how hurtful racist jokes can be.

Bieber wanted to release the video on his own so he could no longer be extorted by various people.

“I thought it was OK to repeat hurtful words and jokes, but didn’t realize at the time that it wasn’t funny and that in fact my actions were continuing the ignorance,” Bieber said in an apology last week.
