Justin Timberlake apologizes for Jesse Williams BET Awards tweet

During last night's BET Awards, actor and activist Jesse Williams gave a memorable speech after receiving the Humanitarian Award for his work in raising awareness for the Black Lives Matter movement. Justin Timberlake was inspired by Williams' words and expressed as much with a direct tweet. A reaction from a writer and then a clap back by Timberlake resulted in a social media backlash that found the pop star apologizing. See the memorable speech and the fallout from J.T.'s twitter misstep.
