Justin Timberlake Jokes About Illegal Voting Selfie on ‘The Tonight Show’: Watch!

About that. Justin Timberlake joked about his illegal voting selfie during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, October 26. Watch what he said in the video above!

As previously reported, the Trolls actor, 35, snapped a photo of himself casting his ballot in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee, on Monday. Unfortunately, in May 2015, Tennessee govenor Bill Haslam signed a statewide bill that voters could only use their cellphones at polling stations for "informational purposes," and violators could face a 30-day jail sentence. Apparently Timberlake didn't get the memo.

"What have you been up to? We never talk," Jimmy Fallon asked during the show.

"I recently voted. Super quiet, under the radar," Timberlake teased. "Went home to Tennessee and voted. Super quiet, in and out. No one even knew."

In the selfie, Timberlake urged his peers to vote as well. "Hey! You! Yeah, YOU! I just flew from LA to Memphis to #rockthevote," he captioned the post, which has since been deleted. "There could be early voting in your town too. If not, November 8th! Choose to have a voice! If you don't, then we can't HEAR YOU! Get out and VOTE! #exerciseyourrighttovote."

The former boy bander (who has campaigned for Hillary Clinton) did the same on Wednesday night. "Get out and vote. Damn straight. But don’t take a picture of yourself in there," he told the crowd. "I had no idea! I thought, this is going to be great! Inspire people to vote! Nope."
