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.

    When the article mentioned "Clinton", I assumed it was referring to Chelsea. I'm surprised Bill would even acknowledge this pipsqueak's existence.

    If Bieber wants to help with Clinton's public health and humanitarian initiatives, he might want to start by not peeing in the mop buckets of any more restaurants.

    As a Canadian, we despise Bieber just as much as the people in the US. Instead of sending him back here, perhaps he can be sent to a third party country?

    What the he!! does Baby Vanilla Ice even know about Bill Clinton ? He's Canadian and was in diapers when Clinton was in office. This isalso the same kid who's inept knowledge of history led him to state earlier this year that if Anne Frank was alive today that she would be a "Belieber". This kid has zero class

    I wonder why a similar apology was not made to the janitor or janitorial staff that had to clean the bucket this jerk peed in?

    If it were any other schmo, besides some wealthy rapper, singer, entertainer, banker, none of the politicians would even answer the phone.

    You're a bigger idiot than I thought, Bieber. Now, go away!

    I think Clinton handled the whole thing gracefully. We've all said or done stupid things in our youth. Get over it people. Clinton has.

    Bieber just can't seem to help himself. Hopefully, he's learning from all of his idiotic antics and we'll start seeing a more mature version of the teen heart thob from now on.

    Let me guess, Bleeper is too stupid to realize that he eats in restaurants like everyone else? Thanks for pleebering in the cleaning supplies that you will hopefully eat later – selfish Bleeb! Please go crash your maserati into the coast so we can go back to enjoying people who make real music.

    I wonder why anyone would even listen to this silly smart ass kid! Just my opinion and I know it doesn't matter.

    People should refuse to be his bodyguards, he might evolve into a primate if he had to answer for his actions.

    He received such a huge break and seems to be wasting his money and going down a road that will not end well. What a waste. Could be suchh a positive role model and so much good. I seem him as a has been in a few years. He will end wasting his all of his money and fade away..

    This guy is a joke. No talent and no class. Oh i forgot, he's young and stupid and still "learning". What a fool. The photo says it all. The glove is so, um, original?

    It amazes me that these jerks just pick up the phone and call presidents of the U.S.. What is more amazing is that these presidents respond. Celebrity status is a high priority with some politicians. Who would want to respond to this teenage jerk

    How this little puke has any fans is beyond me. How his enormous ego fits into a single stadium or venue is a mystery. Talk about being full of yourself, he embarrasses himself daily but is so oblivious he thinks the world thinks he is special and its all good. LOSER, may you fade away quickly and end up digging ditches.
