Shamed pop star Justin Bieber has apologised for a second time for using racist language after claims he reportedly used the racist slur in a video and joked about joining the Ku Klux Klan.

The Canadian heart-throb told The Sun he needed to "take responsibility" for his mistakes and "not let them linger".

He later posted on Instagram a photograph of passages from the Bible, apparently asking for forgiveness.

The 20-year-old singer's latest apology came after the newspaper reported the emergence of a video clip in which he apparently adapts the words to his 2009 hit One Less Lonely Girl to include the highly offensive racial term.
