Jesse Williams’ speech at the BET Awards last night has been taking the Internet by storm, with people from all over coming forward to talk about how moved they were by his words on racism and the current state of equality in America. One person who was particularly moved, apparently, was Justin Timberlake:
As you’ve probably already guessed, Twitter users flocked to his tweet to call him out for cultural appropriation…
…but the REAL shitstorm hit when Timberlake responded to Ernest Owens’ tweet:
It’s aboutta go down.
Realizing this wasn’t going to end in his favor, Timberlake took the time to clarify what he meant, i.e. “I’m sorry, sorry sorry sorry, sorry sorry, stop tweeting at me and go back to sucking my dick via album sales, sorry again!”
Mouth, meet foot. Foot, meet mouth.
You two are going to be besttttt frandsssssss.
