Justin Bieber took to Instagram Tuesday to apologize for racist comments and slurs he said in the past and urged his fans to "stand against racism."

The "Sorry" singer shared a photo of text that reads "STAND AGAINST RACISM" and added his own caption.

"When I was young I was uneducated and found myself saying really hurtful things not knowing the power of my words," Bieber, 25, wrote. "Racism is still very prevalent and I want to use my voice to remind we are all human being and all of EQUAL VALUE BEFORE GOD!"

Though he wasn't specific about his past, Bieber made headlines in the past when he was recorded using the N-word. The Blast reports that when he was 14 years old, he was recorded signing a version of his song "One Less Lonely Girl" where he used the slur. The clip popped up online years later and went viral.
