In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, UFC President Dana White recounted a moment in his life in which he was forever scarred by the way a celebrity treated him when he was a child. The memory triggered a similar experience White had with a celebrity not too long ago, this time as a father.
The celebrity in question was Justin Timberlake.
Dana White concluded the recollection by referring to Justin as simply "the biggest douchebag I have ever met in my life."
So what did Justin do to prompt Dana to smear his name in such an offensive manner? Here's what happened:
Dana, his wife and his three kids (Dana has a ten year-old son, eleven year-old son and six year-old daughter) were backstage at the Nickelodeon Awards, hanging out with some A-list celebrities inside the Black Eyed Peas' dressing room.
His children are having the time of their lives, taking pictures with the likes of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, just to name a few. The three kids, along with Lorenzo Fertitta's daughter, are the only children in the room, so they are absolutely glowing with all the attention they are getting from the these world famous entertainers.
Then Justin Timberlake walks in and allegedly ignored the fans backstage instead of taking a few seconds to interact.
White was so infuriated by the popstar's treatment of his children that he brought up the incident during the aforementioned interview several years later. He thought he should let the world know that this seemingly wholesome and good-natured hero was really quite disrespectful to several young fans. It wasn't long before JT heard about the insults White had thrown his way.
Justin didn't want to let one poorly handled encounter with kids tarnish his image, so he called up Dana White to apologize about the way he acted that night. Dana couldn't have more pleased with the way Timberlake handled the insults, and judging by White's latest tweet, this exciting feud is now officially dead:
