The 8 Most Unintentionally Racist Things White Celebrities Have Ever Done

The Celebrity: Justin Timberlake

The Slipup: As the host of ESPN’s 2008 ESPY Awards, JT made a joke about Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce “shucking and jiving” on the basketball court.
The Reaction: Crickets. ESPN edited the clip from the show after the audience didn’t respond to it during the taping of the show.

The Rating: 1/2 a John Mayer Playboy interview. Since the clip never aired and someone probably wrote the joke for Justin anyway, we’ll file this one under “No Harm, No Foul.”
