Justin Timberlake is being dragged on Twitter for his reaction to Grey's Anatomy star Jesse Williams' powerful speech at the BET Awards.

Williams and his magnificent eyes accepted the Humanitarian Award and gave an impassioned speech on the entertainment industry's treatment of black people in America. "This invention called whiteness uses and abuses us," Williams said, "Burying black people out of sight and out of mind while extracting our culture, our dollars, our entertainment like oil — black gold, ghettoizing and demeaning our creations then stealing them, gentrifying our genius and then trying us on like costumes before discarding our bodies like rinds of strange fruit."

Timberlake tweeted he was "#Inspired."

But some people mocked him, saying that he is part of the very problem Williams was talking about.

J. Timbs got defensive and took on a tweeter directly in a Timbertweet:

Timberlake apologized, but in a way that yet again missed the point.

While maybe completely missing the point, points to Timberlake for not responding with any of his douchey lyrics like "Cry Me a River," "What Goes Comes Around," or "Bye Bye Bye."
