On Sunday night at the 2016 BET Awards actor Jesse Williams was awarded Humanitarian of the year and he stole the night with a very memorable and powerful speech calling for an end to police killings of blacks, racial inequality and cultural appropriation.

The speech got him trending and had a lot of African Americans bursting with pride. Even non blacks were inspired like Justin Timberlake who decided to chime in with this harmless tweet,

And then a tweep asked the music star if he was going to stop appropriating black culture since he was so inspired by the speech.

And then he replied this…
