Bieber's apology on Instagram came in the form of a photo of a passage from the devotional Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. In his statement he said:

Facing my mistakes from years ago has been one of the hardest things I've ever dealt with. But I feel now that I need to take responsibility for those mistakes and not let them linger.

I just hope that the next 14-year-old kid who doesn't understand the power of these words does not make the same mistakes I made years ago. At the end of the day I just need to step up and own what I did.
