Pop singer Justin Bieber made an appearance in a comedic skit posted on YouTube on Wednesday that features different stereotype-adhering men each acting as Superman.

The video — titled “Racist Superman” and posted online by YouTube star Rudy Mancuso — begins with various “Men of Steel” from different backgrounds meeting at a cafe, including Black Superman, Asian Superman, Jewish Superman, Middle Eastern Superman, French Superman, and Mexican Superman, played by Mancuso himself.

Bieber appears at the end of the clip as Canadian Superman and, while the other superheroes argue over who is the original Clark Kent, the pop star tries to be stereotypically nice to them. At one point, he tells Middle Eastern Superman, “Hummus is delicious,” and says, “Mazal tov,” to Jewish Superman.

The Jewish version of Superman wears a kippah throughout the video and tells his peers when arriving at the cafe, “[I’m] saving the world, one day at a time, and giving out bagels afterwards.”

The clip promotes the antisemitic stereotype that Jews are cheap. When asked about his opinion on leaving a tip at a restaurant, Jewish Superman says, “I wouldn’t tip anything, I’d leave,” and urges Mexican Superman to go to a restaurant down the street that is half the price.

Swedish DJ Alesso also makes an appearance in the clip as Swedish Superman. See the complete video below:
