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.

    Everyone needs to realize he obviously didnt know the camera was on him, and its not like he requested a press conference to stand on a podium and disrespect Clinton. He was just goofing around, as people his age tend to do. I see worse comments on boards like this about our current president on a daily basis.

    Why do they keep using that picture of Vanilla Ice on all these Justin Bieber articles?

    That little brat needs to get parented over, or he'll either get himself killed through his own stupidity or murdered by pulling his bizarre prima donna crap on the wrong person.

    What a pompous, stupid little girl. Oh sorry, guy. What's a shame is this little punk keeps making news with his antics. He should have some sort of common sense at what, 19? Oh Slighter, we really don't want him either. Let's send his behind to Egypt. That should be a wake up slap across the face. This kid is cussing at posters and the world is in a free fall. What's scary for people my age is that he's the future. Someone please help us!

    What a self-important little twa..., I mean twit. Bill Clinton probably could not have cared less what some little punk, pop singer had to say about him.

    To Mike,

    I will respect the president the day he begins to respect The Constitution. Until that day, forget it.

    For a change the kid said something right and now this. Confused but ready to riot after Z "Not Guilty" verdict.

    If Bieber and Bynes had kids, they'd be too dumb to find their way out of the womb. Is this some kind of a contest between the two of them, like who can be the biggest fool? Both, total losers, if you ask me.

    I think it is time for Justin Beiber to take a break for a while ...He is doing to many things these days to embarrass himself..

    He only apologized because he got busted out... he's an arrogant little jerk.

    Cool reply from President Clinton. He remains the President that I would most like to share a beer with.

    He did apologize...... Which is more than I can say about ANY member of the GOP when it comes to disrespecting our current POTUS. I've heard some of the rotten things they say about him in public, I would love to be a fly on the wall to hear just a few of the things they say about HIM in private.

    I think he looks like a girl and is a stupid little twit. Who cares that tons of "little girls" are in love with him. There will ALWAYS be little girls in love with something...when they grow up they learn that they wasted their time. Justin Bieber is NO artist.

    I am so sick of hearing "oh he is just a kid" I have a 10 year old nephew that knows you do not relieve yourself in a bucket that is used to mop the floor. How would that little jerk like it if it was his mother that had to clean that bucket before it could be used again. I see why the little girls like him, because he looks just like them another little girl, he really should not wear tank tops he cannot pull it off he just looks silly.

    Bieber bumping up his "suburban cred". Trying to to impress the teeny boopers, who knows as much as he does!

    Bieber is a very public person and knows that everything he does is going to be caught on camera and publicized. He is going off the deep-end very quickly and is likely to end up in "never-never land". He had to know that everything he did that night was going to be made public. It is very sad behavior.

    Someone should slap his mom for doing a terrible job at raising him. She needs to stop going on tv talk shows sawing how hard it was to be a single parent and what a good she did. If she did a good job her son wouldnt act like an idiot every single day and would have some morals in life.

    I think if you're a former president and a teenage pinhead calls you to apologize, you have pretty much hit bottom.

    I'm just relieved he knew who Clinton was.
