Justin Bieber Is Defended by Whoopi Goldberg [Video]

Justin Bieber has gained a strong supporter with his recent controversy. On an episode of The View that aired on Wednesday morning, host and moderator Whoopi Goldberg shocked the panel and the viewing audience by stating she believed the young singer should get a pass over his usage of the “N-word”. Her reasoning is that as Bieber grew up in Canada, he would not be privy to the knowledge of the “power” of the word in America and that it could and has hurt others.

As she introduced the set-up to the conversation, the 58-year-old said that he was “too young” to understand the strength of the word back then and added that “he’s Canadian” as part of the reason. The audience groaned almost immediately and co-host Sherri Shepherd attempted to interject. Goldberg stated that she had proof from personal experience to back her up.

“N****r doesn’t mean anything in Canada,” she expressed.

Shepherd retorted back, “Well, what does it mean; groceries?”

Goldberg shared that she worked on a movie in Canada sometime last year. The writer of the film, “a young and lovely Canadian woman,” initially wrote dialogue for her character in the film that she felt “no one would ever say”.

“Black Canadians and black Americans are two groups of separate people,” Goldberg continued. “I went to the director and said, “What is this?” He said, “Oh, she lives here.” She [doesn’t] get what we [as black people] are talking about.”

Goldberg stated that adjustments were made to the script. “That’s just the way it is,” she said.

Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, discovered him while looking through YouTube videos for new artists. Although he was born and raised in Canada, he was flown to Atlanta at age 13 to begin working on demos for his first EP, My World. R&B singer Usher, who is African-American, began working with Bieber approximately one week after he arrived in America.

Other View co-hosts immediately disagreed with the statement Goldberg gave. Shepherd added that no matter where the word was said, “People don’t like it if you throw it around.”

“I don’t think Canadians throw it around,” Goldberg responded, adding that the word turns up in many songs by many American musicians.

“When you’re 15 and you’re someplace where that’s not a word that is associated with people that are of color,” she continued, “They weren’t calling them that.”

“Well, now, he knows,” Shepherd responded.

“And that’s why he apologized,” Goldberg answered back.

Following an outcry from viewers, The Color Purple star gave another short statement on Twitter to express that history between Canada and America is greatly different.

“I was saying that the N-word is not something that lived in Canada the way it lived here,” she explained.

Many African-American friends of Bieber have stood by him since the video leaks. Boxers Floyd Mayweather and Mike Tyson, as well as rapper Lil Wayne have spoken up in his defense, saying that they are still close with the 19-year-old. Bieber’s mentor, Usher, was confronted by a TMZ camera man earlier in the week, but refused to comment and actually ran away from the photographer.

Page Six of the New York Post recently reported that there may be more video clips of Bieber coming soon. As for the singer himself, it is said he is currently vacationing in Mexico since the controversy broke. He has been posting verses from the Bible regarding the power of forgiveness since his released his apology.

    Hey, how’s it going?

    Did you hear that the powers that run this world want to put a RFID microchip in our body? It will contain not only our bank accounts but our personal information, making us total slaves to the elite. This will cause us to lose even more of our privacy.

    Did you know that this RFID microchip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18?

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. It’s amazing that the Bible foretold a cashless society!

    Did you also hear that the Jewish people are in the process of bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible by the prophet Daniel, Jesus, and Apostle Paul? They deny Jesus as their Messiah and say their Messiah will be revealed to rule the whole world under a one world religion. They are not even hiding this information, but are actually promoting it. You can view videos about this on YouTube.

    When Donald Trump made Jerusalem captial of Israel in late December 2017, the Jewish people said this was a big step for them to build this Third Temple. They even printed a Temple coin with president Trump’s face on the front with king Cyrus'(the man who built the Second Temple in the Bible) face behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the Third Temple. They are selling these coins to raise money to build the Temple.

    People have been saying for many years that the end is near, but we needed not only the Third Temple, but also the technology for there to be a cashless society for the Mark of the Beast to be a reality.

    There is much more to know, please visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see all the proof!

    GOD BLESS, JESUS LOVES YOU!

    Hey there! Wanted to share with you some very important news! Did you hear that the elite are planning a world where we all have a RFID microchip implanted in our body? This will be part of a one world cashless society, making us total slaves to them. More importantly, did you know that this microchip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible(Revelation 13:16-18)? “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name…” Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. The Jewish people are in the process of building the Third Temple prophesied by the prophet Daniel, Jesus and Apostle Paul. They deny Jesus as their Messiah and say their Messiah will be revealed to rule the world. This information is public, and you can see it for yourself. Do not be deceived, this man will be thee Antichrist! For proof of all this and much much more, please visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM Jesus loves you, He is calling you!
