TIMBERLAKE TALKS INCLUSION AT iHEART

After winning an iHeart Music Award for “Can’t Stop the Feeling” and giving a big shout-out to RCA's Joe RiccitelliJustin Timberlake went on the offensive for inclusion in his acceptance speech, saying he wrote the song  “about being together. So I guess I want to take this opportunity to speak to young people right now because there's a lot of you looking at me."

Timberlake continued: "If you are black or you are brown or you are gay or you are lesbian or you are trans, or maybe you're just a sissy singing boy from Tennessee, anyone who is treating you unkindly, it's only because they're afraid or they have been taught to be afraid of how important you are. Being different means you make the difference, so fuck 'em."

The speech has gotten substantial media pickup, with JT getting props for speaking out and offering uplift to communities that feel under siege nowadays. Check out the video.
