Justin Bieber's latest controversy is no laughing matter.

Newly unearthed footage has surfaced that shows the singer, 20, telling a racist joke and repeatedly using a derogatory slur.

The U.K. tabloid the Sun has released the offensive clip, reportedly taken while Bieber, then 17, was filming his 2011 documentary Never Say Never.

In the scene, the teen idol wears a smirk on his face as he asks, "Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?" He then follows up with the slur-laden punchline "Run n––, n––, n––, n––, n––."



The regretful clip comes on the heels of the star's multiple and continued recent run-ins with the law.

A rep for the singer had no comment at this time.
