Justin Timberlake Gets Dragged (& Responds) After Praising BET Speech

By HHL Editors

Count Justin Timberlake among those who was impressed with actor/activist Jesse Williams speech at the BET Awards.

Williams touched on racism, police brutality, black empowerment and cultural appropriation after receiving BET's Humanitarian Award.

Journalist Ernest Owens wasn't feeling Timberlake making such a comment after Williams had put cultural appropriation on the table.

JT -- an 8-time BET Awards nominee --- wasn't feeling Owens's feelings.

However, after certain segments of Twitter came for the former boy-bander, Timberlake changed his tune.

Owens still wasn't impressed.

What do you think? Was JT out of line, or are people too sensitive?
