Bieber calls Clinton after using the F-word

(CNN) – Justin Bieber called and apologized to former President Bill Clinton after a recently-emerged video showed the artist spraying cleaner fluid on a photo of the former president and saying "F*** Bill Clinton."

An aide to Clinton confirmed the apology, and Bieber tweeted about the conversation Wednesday night.


The video, posted online by TMZ, showed Bieber urinating in a janatorial mop bucket as he and his entourage exited a nightclub through a restauraunt kitchen.

The poorly-shot video then shows Bieber using what looks like cleaning liquid to spray a poster of Clinton as the performer shouts the expletive about the former president. The incident reportedly happened in New York City earlier this year.

E! Online reported that Bieber told Clinton he would love to help the Clinton Global Initiative, a public health and humanitarian organization run by the former president and his family.

Clinton reportedly told Bieber, "If that is the worst thing you have ever done, all is well."

– CNN's Paul Steinhauser and Ashley Killough contributed to this report.

    Good job! Way to turn a stupid and childish act into some good for others. I dont like what he did but at least he owned up and took responsibility. Wish the GOP could do the same. :)

    This article (such as it is) needs to be removed to the Entertainment section. Ditto for Sarah Palin teasers.

    Justin Bieber needs to grow up. Too much time and money on his hands. He is a white boy that the lesbians emulate. He should spend his time and money more productively and stop trying to act like a THUG.

    Is that all it takes to get a conversation with President Clinton?

    I don't understand why he would be angry at a former President that took office two years before he was born...

    Narcissistic, no talent, punk. I see prison in this young man's future. And getting beat up many times.

    Did the little jerk call the restaurant and apologize? Perhaps he should offer to go back and clean up after himself. What a disgusting display.

    What a stupid thing for Bieber to do. I don't care about the apology, but what does it say about Bieber that he videos himself urinating while shouting expletives at ex-presidents? That's pretty weird... but maybe it is part of his 'shtick' – I don't know much about him except that he is famous.

    Clinton reportedly told Bieber, "If that is the worst thing you have ever done, all is well," forgetting about the whole "Anne Frank would have been a belieber" thing.

    Mr. Justin Beiber is a Canadian. This is grounds for him being deported. Mocking the President.
