Justin Bieber Has Been Accused Of Using Racist Slurs During His Brawl In Cleveland

June 8, 2018 / Posted by:

Two years ago, Justin Bieber got into a physical fight after an NBA Finals game in Cleveland with a Las Vegas resident named Rodney Cannon. Last year, Rodney filed an assault report. According to The Blast, Rodney has now filed a lawsuit against Justin Bieber alleging that his fists weren’t the only thing thrown that night. Rodney claims Justin hissed several racial epithets at him.

The lawsuit states some of what we previously know about Justin and Rodney’s fight: that it was started after Rodney took a picture of Justin. Justin was pissed and demanded Rodney delete the picture. As Justin was getting all fired up, he allegedly called Rodney a series of hateful expletives, including the n-word (as you’ve most likely guessed, Rodney is black). The Blast doesn’t say if Rodney is seeking damages or financial compensation.

Eventually the fight got physical, and Rodney claims he ended up with a concussion, as well as mental and emotional injuries. Billboard reached out to Justin’s rep regarding Rodney’s lawsuit, but hasn’t received a response. Likewise, Justin doesn’t seem to have anything to say. Oh, so now he’s keeping his mouth shut? Keep that up, it’s a good look.

Justin’s longtime manager Scooter Braun hopped on Twitter to defend him from Rodney’s n-word accusation, and to make an allegation of his own: that Rodney is just out for cash.

Scooter chose his words wisely; Justin has done a lot of stupid things. But he could have defended Justin just a little better from Rodney’s accusations than that. Like, he could have written, “Justin would never say something as disgusting and vile as the n-word. Nope. Never. You’ll only ever catch him singing it.
