Jesse Williams Talks About His Best Friend Justin Timberlake and BET Speech

One of the most talked about TV stars in 2016, Jesse Williams, visited The Ellen Show to chat about his powerful speech at the BET Awards and competed with Ellen DeGeneres to see who was better friends with Justin Timberlake.

DeGeneres said that Williams is still a hunk but now, he is known more for his activism which she says was amazing, particularly his speech at the BET Awards. The host said that Beyonce and Kendrick Lamar both performed that night and they would normally steal the show, however, everyone was talking about Williams' speech.

She played a clip for the audience who applauded.

It wasn't a battle but it soon turned into one as they started exchanging all of the awesome perks from being best friends with Timberlake.
