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.

    I am embarrased he is a Canadian. Maybe the US can keep him permanently.

    Not really a Clinton fan but I think his response showed a lot of grace.

    What's the drinking age in New York? In Iowa it is 21 and if it is that, he shouldn't be frequenting all of these clubs and bars anyhow, should be arrested for being in them

    This child is a loser and lacks empathy. If he were sincere he would not need to tweet to the world about his apology. Who raised this pathetic person?

    Engage the brain before you talk NOT after!
    What is spoken can never be withdrawn.

    I understand that when somebody throws millions of dollars at you and tells you act like a chump, it is hard to resist. I wonder if he really believes he is that great though or if he realizes he is just a tool.

    Never a fan of Bill Clinton. However, a litle respect and decorum go a long way. But what do you want from a punk who films himself peeing into a mop bucket? No class.

    This is what happens when societal civility erodes completely-even non-Americans (Canadians) feel absolutely comfortable insulting a FORMER POTUS. I'm glad he apologized, however.

    Learn how to write Bieber. "ALOT" is actually two words A LOT.
    You should cuss when you've mastered your language, otherwise you just come across as dumb AND disrespectful.

    "I am embarrased he is a Canadian. Maybe the US can keep him permanently."

    The U.S. should kick him out he is behaving like Snowden!
    Plus I would think Canada might or rather should be too embarassed to even admit he is a Canadian.
    Then again Canada is Canada.

    Oh, he had the talent, all right. But where did it go? He's pretty much just a guy who can carry a tune these days.

    Where is the mother of this little poppy? It looks like she didn't do her job properly of how to bring this kid up. Is it because of getting massive money at a very, very young age, OR is it , that he was not taught how to respect those who are older than him? It is really disgusting and I do not think any parent can be proud of such a kid.

    And this is news?! What happened to the events going on in Egypt?
    Oh... That's right, the Obama regime was supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and the Egyptians hate the US for it.
    Thank you Justin, you are saving the Obama-nation.

    Growing old is easy...being an adult...not so certain. I think someone's career is sinking fast, last report record sales plummet 79%, and he is no longer the object of the teenage girl frenzy.

    BIEBER – NEWSFLASH....Being a jerk, and trying to look like, or acting like a rich punked-up mobster is not the way back to the top of the charts! Suggestions: lose that posse you think are your friends, they are not; buy some reasonable cloths that don't make you look like a dork; make fewer high-speed neighborhood cruises everyone knows you can afford a hot just don't need to prove its hot; stop insulting your elders; stay out of the limelight of barhopping and bucket peeing; ditch the Michael Jackson wannabe glove,....and commit yourself to some serious charity gigs. The fact is, you might never have the volume of fame or record sales you once had, but at least you will be considered a respectable and serious adult.

    Bieber is an idiot going the route of Lohan and Bynes. Soon he will be irrelevant. Stop publishing stuff about him and YES – drinking age is 21 and he was born in 1994 – you do the math – not 21!!!
