Michelle Williams impersonating Justin Timberlake saying “fo shiz, fo shiz” while narrating Britney Spears’ new memoir is simply too much for the internet to handle.

A snippet of Williams reenacting Timberlake’s past run-in with R&B crooner Ginuwine has gone viral, as many online are praising the actress for her dedicated commitment to bringing to life the tantalizing tales written in “The Woman in Me.”

In the excerpt, Spears, 41, described her then-boyfriend’s band, *NSYNC, as “white boys” who “loved hip-hip” and “hung out with black artists,” arguing that that is what “separated them from the Backstreet Boys.”

“Sometimes I thought they tried too hard to fit in,” she admitted.

“One day, J and I were in New York, going to parts of town I’d never been to before,” Williams, 43, read from the passage.

“Walking our way was a guy with a huge, blinged-out medallion. He was flanked by two giant security guards. J got all excited and said so loud, ‘Oh, yeah! Fo shiz, fo shiz, Ginuwine! What’s up, homie?”

Though the “Toxic” hitmaker said Timberlake, 42, was unfazed by the seemingly embarrassing display, social media users are mortified on his behalf, calling the moment “cringe,” “so embarrassing” and “not hot.”

“Nothing can prepare you for these 15 seconds of michelle williams doing a justin timberlake impression as written by britney spears,” one fan tweeted, as another predicted, “this is how she gets a grammy for best spoken word album.”

“michelle’s delivery accurately depicts just how corny and deplorable justin has always been,” one critic shared, while another netizen quipped, “(white) Michelle Williams doing an impression of Britney doing an impression of Justin Timberlake doing an impression of a Black person – this is art.”

Someone else even branded it “the greatest clip of audio since Watergate.”

Though Timberlake — who dated the Princess of Pop from 1999 to 2002 — has not yet spoken out on the various claims made about him in the memoir, he’s reportedly “not at all happy.”

“Justin has not reached out to Britney at all about any of this, and he is not going to because there is nothing he can say to her,” a source told DailyMail.com Tuesday.

While the source noted that Spears is “just telling it from her point of view,” Timberlake is apparently not “OK with it.”

An insider had exclusively told Page Six ahead of the book’s release that the “Mirrors” singer was “concerned” about what his ex would divulge.
