Justin Bieber is feeling shame after the murders of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery.
The pop star, 26, and his model wife Hailey Baldwin spoke with CNN commentator and activist Angela Rye about privilege, which Baldwin posted on her Instagram account Sunday.
“I’ve been feeling shame in the sense of like, why did it take these men being killed for me to almost take a blanket over my eyes. Why now? I do feel bad when it comes to that,” the “Sorry” singer confessed.
Baldwin, 23, captioned the video post, “As a white woman, I know I am privileged, and I didn’t always understand what that really meant. I will never understand what it’s like to be racially profiled and targeted and wake up everyday uncertain if I could lose my life because of the color of my skin.

“I want to know better so I can do better and I will not stop asking these questions and having these conversations. I want to keep learning how to be an ally, and I refuse to keep walking through life being ignorant.”
Bieber also mentioned the couple’s strong Christian faith.
“Hailey and I are both Christians,” he said. “We believe in the love of Jesus. I truly believe that the love of Jesus is what’s going to change hearts.”
