[There was a video here]

In the video above, a young-looking Justin Bieber can be seen telling a shitty joke to some friends. "Why are black people afraid of chainsaws?" he asks, self-satisfied grin on his face. After an off-camera voice urges, "don't even say it," Biebs gets to the "n-word"-laden punchline.

According to Page Six, the video was filmed for the 2011 Bieber biopic Never Say Never, but, for obvious reasons, was left on the cutting room floor. Bieber's team allegedly knew of the clip's existence and offered a payout to keep it from leaking. TMZ is reporting that the pop star was 15 when the clip was filmed.
