Netizens made fun of Justin Timberlake's dance moves as a video from a music festival went viral. Many, however, came forward in the singer's defence too.

American singer-songwriter Justin Timberlake got brutally trolled online by Twitterati for his awkward dance moves at a music festival. A video of the 'Cry Me a River' singer dancing to the song 'Beat Ya Feet' at the Something in the Water music festival is going viral. 

Donning casual khaki pants, orange sneakers, and a green button-down, the singer is seen performing at the festival in the viral clip. 

The fun-filled event took place on Washington’s Independence Avenue. The starry event witnessed performances by Pharrell, Ozuna, Raveena, Tyler, the Creator, Post Malone, Denzel Curry, J Balvin, and Omar Apollo.    

Unimpressed by Timberlake's dance moves, many mocked the star on micro-blogging sites and wrote funny posts.

He's getting a well-deserved dragging on Tik Tok and I'm hollering. #justintimberlake #sexyback #FathersDay2022. (sic)"

Another Twitter user wrote, "It's just so awkward! I don't know if it's the dance or his shoes or the lack of stage decor but I just can't. And I used to love him back in the day. #JustinTimberlake #SITWFest #SITW #DC. (sic)"

And, one tweeted, "The facial expressions 😀#justintimberlake #beatyafeet."
