Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) just let loose on Justin Timberlake after the singer urged fans to join him in donating funds to an organization that is providing bail money for lawless rioters.
“Justin, how about giving your millions to a fund to help the African-American and Hispanic small businesses that are being burned & looted, rather than a fund to bail out the spoiled (often white) ANTIFA terrorists who are destroying minority communities?” Cruz fired back as he responded to a tweet Timberlake made asking fans to join him in donating.

This comes as violent riots continue to spread around the country like wildfire as Americans take to the streets to protest the death of George Floyd, who died in police custody last week in Minneapolis, Minnesota. While Floyd’s death was undoubtedly a tragedy, it has since been used as an excuse for groups like Antifa to launch violent protests all over America, burning down businesses and ransacking stores.

Liberal Hollywood elites like Timberlake have looked past the violence in order to support the protesters, and the latest trend in the entertainment world seems to be donating money to help bail out criminal protesters who have taken their violent protests way too far.
Former Secret Service agent and conservative commentator Dan Bongino took to Twitter to call out Timberlake as well; he posted a video that showed a mob beating a woman outside of a Rochester business with lumber. Bongino captioned the video, “Is @jtimberlake going to bail them out?”

It’s both despicable and disturbing that Timberlake is using his platform to help out and glorify criminals who are spreading violence right now. We applaud Cruz for calling him out, and we hope more conservatives and anyone with sound-minded principles follow suit.
