Justin Timberlake Said That 24-Hour Parenting Is Not Human, And Parents Are Not Here For That

Like a lot of us, Justin Timberlake, his wife Jessica Biel, and their 5-year-old son Silas have been practicing social distancing.

But unlike most us, they’re doing it from their ranch in Montana (which FTR, Justin says he feels really blessed to have as a place to wait out the pandemic).

Well, yesterday, Justin did a Zoom interview with SiriusXM’s Hits 1 to promote the release of Trolls World Tour onto streaming, and he also talked about self-isolating in Montana with his family:

When he was asked if the quarantine had put any stress on his marriage (as it has other couples), Justin responded with:

We’re doing good. We’re mostly commiserating over the fact that we… just, 24-hour parenting is just not human.

Now saying 24-hour parenting is not human is probably not something you should EVER say (as parenting is a 24-hour job every day of the year). But it’s especially NOT something to say now, when people are locked in their homes or apartments and working hard to keep their kids entertained and stress-free.

On top of that, most of these parents don’t have the luxury of being able to leave their current home to go to their second home (that affords them hundreds of secluded private acres).

Well, people on Twitter weren’t really in the mood to deal with Justin Timberlake’s tone-deaf comment, and they let it be known:

@HuffPost @jtimberlake this is what parenting is. You’re not going to get any sympathy from parents because we have had to take care of our children w/o hired help. All I can offer is “Suck it up Buttercup!”

While others pointed out that he is complaining about having to take care of his kid from a large secluded home, while having the financial resources to NOT even have to work:
