Justin Bieber released a short but precise statement in support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

Shared on his social media accounts, Bieber began his statement by acknowledging the fact that he has been “inspired by” and has “benefitted off” of Black culture, specifying that it has influenced both his career and fashion. He continues to promise to be an instrument of change, writing, “I am committed to using my platform from this day forward to learn, to speak up about racial injustice and systemic oppression, and to identify ways to be a part of much-needed change.”

Bieber has been quite vocal of his support for the #BlackLivesMatter movement on social media. The Changes artist has called for the arrest of the three other officers involved in the murder of George Floyd and has shared ways to celebrate Breonna Taylor’s 27th birthday. Furthermore, he’s urged his fanbase to vote for the presidential primaries and to actively be an anti-racist ally.
