Fans mock Justin Timberlake for awkward ‘hokey-pokey’ dance

Justin Timberlake may need to call his choreographer.

The 41-year-old musician stopped by Something in the Water music festival in Washington, DC, on Saturday where he was caught grooving to the Beat Ya Feet dancewhich has been popular in the area for more than 20 years.

However, fans were not impressed with the “Cry Me A River” crooner’s dance moves on stage.

Timberlake donned casual khaki pants, orange sneakers and a green button-down for his performance.

Videos of him shaking his body went viral and, of course, users on Twitter could not help but give their two cents.

JT did not just say ‘beat your feet’ and proceed to river dance & skip. Boy if you do not get your ass off the stage, ” mocked one user.

“Justin Timberlake said ‘DC beat your feet’ and proceeded to do the hokey pokey,” noted another.

Someone else made fun of his chosen attire, writing: “Justin Timberlake still thinks he has any swag left while wearing those Old Navy khakis on stage.”

One tweeted that the “In Time” actor’s dancing at the fest “is a cross between a black uncle at a cookout and Irish river dancing and no I will not be explaining this any further.”

Another fan joked that Timberlake’s moves were the inspiration for “Glee” star Matthew Morrison’s character Will Schuester and “nothing will convince me otherwise.”

Timberlake’s weird dance moves prompted fans on social media to make jokes at his expense.

“Justin Timberlake your DC pass is revoked until further notice,” wrote another person.

The festival took place on Washington’s Independence Avenue between June 17 and June 19.

Other artists on the festival’s lineup included its founder Pharrell, TI, Anderson .Paak, Ozuna, Raveena, Tyler, the Creator, J Balvin, Post Malone, Denzel Curry and Omar Apollo.

However, the three-day extravaganza was riddled with technical issues and was disorganized, with performances not happening on schedule, a heavy influx of traffic and more.

One person tweeted about the conflicts: “I hope y’all have a ‘come to Jesus’ moment tonight with the organizing team, so the rest of the festival will be well-organized. Too many people fainted, too many wrong set times, narrow roads, awkward entrance processes… just 0/10 tonight. ”
