      Justin, during a conversation with CNN on the ongoing protests and riots for Black Lives Matter in the past week, said that he will be using his platform more proactively to show support. The riots took place all over America after the killing of an unarmed black man named George Floyd, at the hands of white Minneapolis officers.

      "I've been feeling shame in the sense of like, why did it take these men being killed for me to almost take a blanket over my eyes. Why now? I do feel bad when it comes to that," he admitted.

      Justin's wife and Supermodel Hailey shared the discussion with her fans on Instagram, and added in the caption, "As a white woman, I know I am privileged, and I didn't always understand what that really meant. I will never understand what it's like to be racially profiled and targeted and wake up everyday uncertain if I could lose my life because of the color of my skin."

      Hailey went on to urge her fans to talk, ask the right questions and be educated, "I want to know better so I can do better and I will not stop asking these questions and having these conversations... I want to keep learning how to be an ally, and I refuse to keep walking through life being ignorant. People get nervous to say the wrong thing, and I think this conversation is so healthy, because it's not about saying the wrong thing."

      "Even if we do say the wrong thing, getting corrected in love and respect and saying, 'I'm telling you this because we respect each other and I want you to understand,'" Hailey added.
