Watch Justin Timberlake’s Inspiring Speech After iHeartRadio Win

Justin Timberlake was the first star to win an award Sunday night at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, and the singer wasted no time sending an inspiring message to his fans.

“I wrote this song because I wanted it to be about inclusion, about being together,” the singer and actor, 36, said as he collected his song of the year prize for “Can’t Stop the Feeling!”

“If you are black or you are brown or you are gay or you are lesbian or you are trans — or maybe you’re just a sissy singing boy from Tennessee. Anyone that is treating you unkindly, it is only because they are afraid or they have been taught to be afraid of how important you are because being different means you make the difference. So f— ’em.”
