Justin Timberlake Thanks Everyone on Earth, Except Donald Sterling

Other than a hologram King of Pop, Justin Timberlake completely dominated the Billboard Music Awards last night with seven award wins. During his acceptance speech for Best Artist -- which he made remotely, because he's on tour currently -- Timberlake thanked “everyone on earth, except Donald Sterling.” Of course this was a smart move because had Timberlake just thanked everyone, he surely would have come under fire for supporting the embattled Clippers owner. That's how all-inclusive thank you's work.

It’s worth noting that the former N Sync frontman is a minority owner of the Memphis Grizzlies, so this should count as yet another NBA team owner speaking out against Sterling.
