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.

    This nasty little man is unraveling faster than a speeding bullet. I think less of Bill Clinton for even taking his call.

    Like Beiber's opinion on anything matters. Bill Clinton led us to the first budget surplus in decades. Bieber leads people to crappy music and teenage girls.

    Here comes the next Lohan or Spears. Although I think they probably have bigger balls than him.

    Beiber's mother and father are to blame for how he was raised. My parents would have beat me silly if I acted like he does rich or not.

    Clinton must have been choking he was laughing so anything the little manboy does matters.

    Can't we send this little snot nosed kid back to Canada. I am sure his neighbors would approve. Why is it that these prima donnas become bad boys when they become rich and famous. Spoiled brats, why aren't they thankful that they now have all that they ever wanted. Put them to real work for a month doing something hard and dirty so they appreciate what they have.

    "if that's the worst thing you've ever done, all is well. Then again, I've heard your music. Rot in hell, punk."

    The young man should take control of himself, else he will derail before next few years. Its not all about attaining fame, but taken control of it rather than it taken control of the person is all what matters, and very important. Justin is such a small boy to have done what was ascribed to him, and he should also thank his God that it was a man of Bill Clinton's kind of heart who can forgive him easily considering the fact that he is like a grandfather to the small man.

    There are probably a few things less important than a star feeling self-important. Can't think of any right now.

    It's quite unfortunate this young man would dare to disrespect a former US President. That is a sign of his own down fall.

    He has the right to repeat what so many of you have been saying for years. The fact that JB is an embarrassment to Canada and Canadians does not prohibit him from speaking his mind. This clown makes more American dollars than Canadian dollars. Why don't you put him out of business? No. In five minutes, it's all over. Whatever. Right? Right.
