Scooter Braun Slams Racist Claims Against Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber has the support of his manager Scooter Braun amid claims that the singer made “racial epithets” during a fight back in 2016.

The 36-year-old music exec took to Twitter on Thursday (June 7) to address the lawsuit made against the 24-year-old singer claiming that he used racial slurs against a man he got into a fight with after the 2016 NBA Finals in Cleveland.

“Justin Bieber has done a lot of stupid things in his past but what he has also done is apologize and own those mistakes. This most recent claim against him is completely false and a fabrication from a man who tried to push for money for the last several years,” Scooter first tweeted.

In the new lawsuit, Rodney Tobias Cannon claims that Justin “suddenly became irate” after he took a picture with the singer and “aggressively threatening harm to [Cannon] if the photograph was not deleted.”

He also claims that Justin made “threatening communications made in public in front of a number of people included the use of racial epithets.”

Scooter went on to slam the “disgusting” claims saying that this is something they’ve been fighting for years.

“It is disgusting to me to see this man lie and try to bring race into a situation to scare us into a payment again,” Scooter continued. “He never said these things before because they never happened. This is a smear tactic to get money and it’s gross.”
