Justin Timberlake Accused of Appropriating Black Culture

I mean, no lies are being told, this has been said since he left N’Sync and went solo…

Justin Timberlake was allegedly moved by Jesse Williams speech o he took to Twitter to share his thoughts with fans. “@iJesseWilliams tho… #Inspired #BET2016,” the 35-year-old Grammy winner tweeted.

Then that’s when it all went to hell on a hand basket…. One of his followers retweeted with the quote ,”So does this mean you’re going to stop appropriating our music and culture? And apologize to Janet too. #BETAwards.” Owens was referring to Timberlake’s 2004 Super Bowl performance, in which the singer accidentally flashed Janet Jackson’s breast on stage. Many have argued that Jackson’s career never recovered as a result of the scandal (dubbed “Nipplegate”), while Timberlake’s career continued to soar. In response to Owens’ tweet, the pop singer wrote, “Oh, you sweet soul. The more you realize that we are the same, the more we can have a conversation. Bye.”

Then it was more backlash:
