(That being said, I’m side-eyeing Us Weekly’s source who’s claiming “Tom wanted the relationship to be more public than she was comfortable with.” That just can’t be right.)

(The fact that one of the first thing he acknowledges is the contributions of black women — when has that ever happened before?!) His Tumblr is also great, as is this Twitter story of him previously stepping up without wanting any acknowledgement or publicity.

-Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake hit up Twitter after Jesse‘s speech with some weird tweets that veered dangerously close to #AllLivesMatter territory, so Twitter hits back.
