Soulja Boy is the latest artist to come to JB’s defense in the wake of racist joke scandal … saying Justin should be forgiven for his mistakes.
Soulja tells TMZ:
I talked to Justin yesterday. I called him. He’s in Cancun (in Mexico). We spoke about it. It’s really just so old man. He was 15… The footage was super old. It was a very touchy, serious situation, but we all slip up, we all make mistakes and I told him, man I said, ‘You’re a great person…’ He said, ‘Thank you… for having my back.’ It is what it is. Let the kid live. We all slip up, we all make mistakes. Y’all know he’s not racist. I’m his homie, all his homies is black… he’s not racist.

Soulja Boy is not alone in his support of Justin. Boxing champ Floyd Mayweather voiced his opinion via his Instagram account. Posting a picture with him, Mayweather said “Justin has been nothing but kind to me, my daughters and sons over the years…We all make mistakes when we are young, it’s part of growing up.”
