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.

    What a jerk! The Bieber pull these stunts every day, and then he apologizes for it. His apologies must carry a lot of weight because idiots like Bill Clinton are still buying his apologies. Why? Bill are you also trying to help Justin with these obvious PR stunts.

    Justin Bieber has made an awful lot of bad choices lately. And every time he does these things he apologizes. At what point does the public say enough is enough! I say that after you tick people off day after day, and your publicist then recognizes your insensitive behavior and you post the apology online, your apology should carry no weight. I am sure that everyone screws up now and again, but when you do it continuously then you know it is probably just a publicity stunt.
    Justin your not sorry, just admit it already!

    Just when you thought CNN couldn't stoop any further with fake news, they publish this tripe about this twerp.

    He's done much, much, much worse. Just a few days ago, he peed in a janitor's bucket as he was too lazy to walk a few extra feet to a nearby restroom. That'd get less famous people fined for indecent exposure and probably a few other charges as well.

    As much as I disliked some of Fmr. President Clinton's policies, he's still a Former President and has earned respect.

    Why would Bill Clinton even accept a phone call from this idiot?

    What makes Bieber act this way and gets away? There is more than a lot missing in his life and very soon would sit down and confront the lack. I now believe the saying "MONEY, THE ROOT OF EVIL" especially in his state of when he lacked and suddenly commands wealth and fans.

    I'm a huge Belieber and I'm 55. I have to agree with the psychotherspist. Justin, go back to your old ways and show some respect. Making fans wait for you at concerts just like you did in Dallas last week (I was there) is just not acceptable. You are doing this repeatedly. Your fans' time is just as valuable as your time. Don't get a big head. It'll backfire.

    This kid is a national embarrassment to us here in Canada. But, just imagine how disappointed his mother must be now. All the publicity she has received for raising him single...well, I guess that is a good reason to try to have families stay together because obviously raising him on her own didn't quite work out. I am one Canadian who is embarrassed to say I am from the same country.

    Just what the hell does Beiber even know about Clinton? He was still crapping his own pants when Clinton was in office. What a twit.

    What I find funny is the fact that this kid has access to an ex-president. Hell, I can't even get someone from Congress/Mayor/Governor on the phone, let alone an ex-President.

    Why do we give this kid a platform to spew his garbage? Please stop reporting on him unless he actually creates something worth value for the rest of the population. Until then – I don't care.

    Yeah he offered but he didn't actually give any money. Probably will never happen. This kid is just retarded.

    One "Dud" apologizing to another "Dud".

    Why apologize to the man on the poster? Try apologizing to the person whose business you've vandalized. Peeing in a mop bucket? This kid's brain stopped maturing at the age he found fame.

    Why give the spoiled idiot any ink at all. You are helping the fool sell more records. Of course, suddenly Republicans and Right Wing haters will "discover" how "talented" the little jerk is because he spewed hate at someone they have made a lifestyle and political religion out of hating. We reward these celebrity types for their dysfunctional ego maniacal, behavior so they continue their stupidity.
