Hilarious! Justin Timberlake Apologizes for Botched ‘Beat Ya Feet’ Dance After Backlash [Watch]

Published: Wednesday 22nd Jun 2022 by Rashad

Because he watched his ego take quite the beating after a failed attempt at DC’s ‘Beat Ya Feet’ dance, Justin Timberlake is playing off the embarrassing venture by apologizing to onlookers.

As we reported, Timberlake was a special guest at Pharrell‘s ‘Something in the Water’ music festival last weekend and while there he took to the stage to show off some fancy footwork that got social media talking in the worst way.

Fielding criticism from commenters claiming he looked like ‘an out-of-touch dad’ to suggesting his moves looked like the ‘hokey pokey,’ chatter around the now-viral clip of his dancing prompted the GRAMMY winner to take to Instagram Wednesday (June 22) to react to the hoopla.

Look inside to see what he said.

Taking to social media, Timberlake played off the detractors.

“D.C., I want to apologize to you for two reasons: here, and here,” he says in the video, before flipping the camera around on his right and left feet. “I’m gonna focus on these two guys right here, and get ’em right. Love y’all.”

That’s not all he said. Press “PLAY” on the video for the full “apology.”

“Beat ya feet” is a popularized D.C. dance style that became a staple in the city in the 1990s and 2000s inside the boom of the go-go scene.  And while Timberlake is no stranger to earning laud for his moves in the past, apparently the nationally and internationally-renown ‘beat ya feet’ steps are some that just don’t fit in his dance repertoire.

    Bro how is this dude younger than Usher but is looking 10 years older than Usher.
    BTW If he’d just stop trying sooooo hard to be involved in and imitate black culture he wouldn’t have to keep taking L’s and apologizing.

      Guess the STDs are preserving Usher from aging. Actually, it‘s widely known that blacks are aging way better than whites

      Being from Washington DC . Yes he should apologizes!! Beating your feet is a dance related to The area style of music. With dc suffering from gentrification, we don’t need a misrepresentation on how to “beat your feet”. But I accept his apology
