Justin Bieber's racist comments have drawn parallels with banned LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling's. That is at least according to rapper Lupe Fiasco, who criticized the singer and compared him to Sterling.
In a video that's five years old, Justin Bieber proceeds to tell a racist joke and uses the N-word five times, according to reports.
The 'Baby' singer has had plenty of support from the likes of Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy, Birdman and Floyd Mayweather who have come to his defense since this story went viral.
Fiasco doesn't sympathise though, and he draws comparisons with Donald Sterling. This stems from the fact that the still banned Clippers boss never used the N-word during his private conversation with a lady friend that went public with the help of TMZ.
"There was such an uproar about someone who didn't use the N-word at all," Fiasco says, comparing him to the ex-NBA owner. "And you have someone who just made a very racist joke. I wonder if Justin Bieber's going to get the same treatment as Donald Sterling. I don't think he will."
Fiasco added that he feels "I don't think anybody should be allowed to profit about racism." And we certainly agree.
