Justin Timberlake Accused of 'Cultural Appropriation'

His apology was swift.

As TruthRevolt reported here, Justin Timberlake intended to show support for "Grey's Anatomy" star Jesse Williams, the recipient of a humanitarian award at the BET Awards. But Timberlake's well-wishing tweet took a turn for the worst.

The Twitterverse immediately attacked Timberlake. Ernest Owen responded to Timberlake's comment with:
