Oh, Justin. Justin, Justin, Justin. Your privilege is showing.
While millions of parents are being forced to stay home and not work or work less because their children don’t have a school or a daycare to attend, Justin Timberlake, of all people, is complaining about having to do “24-hour parenting.”
During an interview on SiriusXM show The Morning Mash Up, Timberlake was asked if being in self-isolation has helped or hindered his relationship with his wife Jessica Biel.
After explaining that they have a house in Montana that where they’ve decided to ride it out, he explained, “We’re doing good. We’re doing good. We’re mostly commiserating over the fact that we… just, 24-hour parenting is just not human. It’s not.”
And just like that everyone was all…

He’s right though. Look at how hard this current situation must be for him. This was four days ago. The horror.

I’m parenting a toddler by myself, trying to simultaneously do that and work from home, and somehow expected to hold it together while my income was cut by 75%. I sincerely want them both punched in the face immediately.— krp (@KayArePea) April 9, 2020
Hey @jtimberlake, cry me a fucking river about how you're stuck in a mansion and "24-hour parenting isn't human." While I'm working as a nurse, trying to spend time with my kids but hoping I don't contract this awful virus to spread to my family; you enjoy your life of leisure.— Cooper (@RunningUnicorns) April 10, 2020
The fact that...24 hour parenting...was new....— Maddox (@MKPinDC) April 10, 2020
We have no resources and are currently crowdsourcing medical supplies. So how do we tell these clueless ppl to donate at least $50k towards PPE for our healthcare workers if they want to be “real” Montanans. $100k and I’ll even find them a belt buckle.— leeanndroid (@leeanndroid) April 10, 2020
We thought the best way to do our part was to potentially spread the virus to rural communities.— 🐇💭 (@Topdekfireblast) April 10, 2020
that home is in a private club in my small town.... people coming to that club to be secluded during all this brought the virus to my town 😑 we love it— Caitlin Ruby (@rubyshila) April 10, 2020
Ummm every parent is a 24-hour parent. You don’t get to, like, clock out.— ParlerToddler (@Parler_Toddler) April 9, 2020
Also this kid is like 5. I know 5 year olds can have their moments but parenting a 5 year old with two rich parents WITH NO JOBS is... not hard— Sophia Benoit (@1followernodad) April 9, 2020
I picture them just throwing stacks of cash at their kid’s face and screaming, WHY WONT THIS WORK?! at each other.— Stupindo (@DogUnemployable) April 9, 2020
This Justin Timberlake classic has never been more relevant than it is right now.
