Last night, Justin Timberlake delivered a heartfelt message to LGBT youth, last night (March 5) at the iHeartRadio awards.

While accepting the award for Song of the Year for "Can't Stop The Feeling," Timberlake said:

"I wrote this song because I wanted it to be about inclusion, about being together. I guess I want to take this opportunity and speak to young people right now ‘cause there’s a lot of you looking at me.

"If you’re gay, or you’re lesbian, or you are trans, or maybe you’re just a sissy singer boy from Tennessee — anyone who has treated you unkindly, it’s only because they’re afraid or they have been taught to be afraid of how important you are.

"Because being different means you make a difference. So, fuck ‘em."

During the broadcast, a portion of Timberlake's speech was muted, presumably because of the "F bomb" at the end of his speech.
