Justin Timberlake has joined the celebrities endorsing Joe Biden in the U.S. election race, pressing fans to vote for a world where racism is “condemned, not tolerated”.
The pop star urged his 59.4 million Instagram followers to get out and vote on 3 November, revealing Biden is his pick.
The Can’t Stop the Feeling singer shared a snap of himself, aged 19, and recalled the first time he voted.
“I think I was 19 here. That would have been 2000… when I spent a lot more time in the gym,” he wrote.
“It was also around the first time I voted. I just remember thinking voting was cool, and it all felt very… adult – I don’t think I really understood the weight of it all or took the time to learn what my choices in candidates really meant,” he went on.
“Now, I know how powerful each of our voices can be,” he reflected.
“If you’re voting for the first time, or you’re still not sure if you even wanna vote – because you think your voice won’t make an impact, or you don’t trust the process, or it all seems just like a headache… all I can say is, we really need you,” Timberlake insisted.
Concluding: “This is about our children growing up in a world where racism is condemned, not tolerated. It’s about ensuring that women are empowered everywhere decisions are being made,” he added: “All of this (is) to say, I will be voting for @joebiden and @kamalaharris. I’m voting early, and by mail this year.”
