Timberlake then moves through a series increasingly bizarre, futuristic backdrops before ending up on the other side the apocalypse — where a little girl shouts at viewers to “Wake up!”
Despite the singer’s attempt at a socially conscious contribution to the world culture, many have berated the video on Twitter for its ham-fisted and even hypocritical message.
Some viewers have taken issue with Timberlake’s way late acknowledgment a system that places straight white males — like himself — in positions priority, power and privilege, while others have pointed out that his support the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment rings untrue due to his recent appearance in accused sexual abuser Woody Allen’s Wonder Wheel.
Furthermore, some are accusing Timberlake plagiarizing his work by ripping f a 1984 Super Bowl commercial from Apple.
Frankly, others just straight up don’t like the song.
