Timberlake Targets Bieber in Unaired 'SNL' Sketch

5/25/2011 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Justin Timberlake took aim at Justin Bieber during "SNL" rehearsals last week ... saying in an unaired sketch, "Why don't you put a wig on a chipmunk and tell it to act like a Black man!"



During the sketch -- in which JT plays Wolfgang Mozart -- Timberlake jokes about his pursuit of an acting career, his lack of accolades for "The Social Network" and public fascination with Bieber.

When JT's posse threatens to start hanging out with Bieber in the sketch, Timberlake drops the line --  "Why don't you put a wig on a chipmunk and tell it to act like a Black man!"

So far, Bieber has yet to tweet about the situation.

I love the comments to the skit. All the haters thinking they're witty, but you can't deprecate a self-deprecator. He already called himself out on "acting black". In fact, if he's jealous of Bieber, he must be even more jealous of himself....cuz he tore himself a new one. If you're gonna bother to chime in, make sure you actually got the jokes, douches.

"Why don't you put a wig on a chipmunk and tell it to act like a Black man!"
Was he talking about Bieber or himself? Timberlakes' entire career has been squeeking like a chipmunk and being produced by Timbaland while crooning urban R&B. Substitute Usher for Timbaland, and I'm not sure that is much difference between the two. Heck Bieber is even attempting to pork a Disney Miss. Bieber is even starting down the road of collaboration after collaboration after collaboration so that noone can tell that he's actually run out of material and excitement based on his own merit. NOTHING for either of these two can be attributed to THEIR OWN MERIT whether it be music, acting, comedy, you name it.

Jake your 100% right, I'm glad someone else got it. The skit DID make mention of him acting black too!!! Did some of you not pay attention well or are you just really slow? People can hate on him all they want fact is he brings the ratings, & that is why he a frequent host, with many memorable skits. Who cares if he wrote them? he still delivers well enough to be asked back regularly.

I think these comments are as hilarious as the video. Buncha mopey moes who didn't bother to get the jokes. You can't depricate a self-depricator. So getting all angry makes you look dumb. He slammed himself for being into Black culture right after the Bieber joke so you you're not saying anything he didn't already joke about.

For real? As I recall he started out in a boy band, not really any different than JB. JT is full of himself.

People calm down with the argument between Timberlake and Bieber. It is SNL this is what they do. Make fun of each other, Timberlake has made fun of himself on previous skits. God it is not that serious. Plan and simple both of these guys make more money than any of us.
