Justin Timberlake may be busy being a working dad these days (ya know, when he鈥檚 not being a troll with his adorable family), but last night at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, the singer had something to say 鈥 something important. Unfortunately, he wasn鈥檛 given the chance to be heard, as the network muted his words reaching out to LGBTQ youth.

Justin Timberlake took home the Song of the Year award last night for 鈥淐an鈥檛 Stop the Feeling鈥 and decided to use his time on stage as an opportunity to address LGBTQ youth. However, those watching at home didn鈥檛 hear what he had to say, because the Turner Network stations broadcasting the event (TNT, TBS, and truTV) muted Timberlake.

iHeartRadio apparently wasn鈥檛 behind the move at all and tweeted a recording of JT鈥檚 speech, highlighting his words, 鈥淏ecause being different means you鈥檙e making a difference.鈥

For the record, Timberlake was quite clear with his message, saying, 鈥淚f you鈥檙e gay, or you鈥檙e lesbian, or you are trans, or maybe you鈥檙e just a sissy singer boy from Tennessee 鈥 anyone who has treated you unkindly, it鈥檚 only because they鈥檙e afraid or they have been taught to be afraid of how important you are. Because being different means you make a difference. So, f*ck 鈥榚m.鈥 Indeed. *claps enthusiastically*

What do you think about the fact that Justin Timberlake鈥檚 speech to LGBTQ youth was muted? Let us know @BritandCo!
