Justin Timberlake is hot on the promotional trail for new movie ‘Palmer,’ which premiered today on Apple TV+.
In the film, the GRAMMY winner plays an ex-convict who establishes an unlikely friendship with a young boy who is bullied for playing with dolls and dressing up like a princess.
During an interview with GLAAD, JT seized the moment to express how the movie’s narrative reminded him of how proud he is to stand in unison with marginalized voices.

Speaking on the LGBTQ community, Timberlake said:
“I very much enjoy being an ally, and it’s a true honor anytime someone addresses me that way.”
He went on to draw comparisons to his own marginalization in early life being bullied for “being a young boy who was into the arts.”
Earlier in the week, he said of ‘Palmer’:
“This is a story about accepting people for who they are, and who they want to be… no contingencies, no questions asked. As a dad, this story hits home. And I’m honored to be part of this film.”
