While we — along with a lot of other people — thought it was incredibly brave of him to open up about something so horrible, the 36-year-old confessed in an interview released on Tuesday that not everyone was as supportive, explaining:
"The sad thing is … even I started getting judged when that story came out. They're like, 'Well, if he was bein' honest…' I'm like, 'Really, I'm just gonna lie about that?'"
After facing backlash for his admission, the former boy band member says he understands why women have a difficult time speaking out after they've been sexually assaulted:
OK, Lance Bass needs to be careful about his wording…
During a panel on Wednesday's Meredith Vieira Show, the SiriusXM radio host made a very shocking admission that he was the victim of inappropriate touching when he was a teenager.
The former *NSYNC member went on to say that right when the boy band was talking off two decades ago, an older man, whom Bass referred to as a "pedophile," worked with the pop group would touch him and "the guys" inappropriately.
But apparently, the singer's choice of wording may have confused viewers about what actually happened!
On Wednesday, Bass clarified his comments on his radio show Dirty Pop, and he explained that he was NOT molested! He asserted:
Lance Bass made a shocking admission on Wednesday.
The former *NSYNC member revealed on The Meredith Vieira Show that he was inappropriately touched when he was around 16 or 17 years old — right when his music career was taking off!
"It had happened to me… When we started there was someone that we worked with that was inappropriately touching us."
While he didn't specifically name
We were absolutely devastated to learn about the shooting Thursday at Umpqua Community College in Oregon.
A gunman opened fire on the school's campus, killing as many as 10 people and injuring 20 others. This terrible tragedy is one of many in the United States this year alone.
The shooter was reportedly killed in a firefight with authorities who were responding to the 9-1-1 call.
We aren't the only ones whose hearts were broken to hear about this sad, senseless act of violence. Celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres and Eva Longoria took to Twitter to express their grief and share their condolences, writing:
I can’t imagine what the families of UCC are going through. The world is rising up to hold you in the light. I hope you can feel our love.

Amy Schumer also used the status-sharing site to share her sadness, saying:
Love to Oregon

Take a look at all the other stars who responded to the horrifying attack in Oregon:
It seems Justin Timberlake's Dirty Pop days are over!
On Thursday, Lance Bass opened up on Meredith Vieira's show about his former *NSYNC bandmate's life as a new dad.
"Well, I have to come all the way to NBC just to see my friends. Justin was in the building — he was shooting Fallon or Seth Meyers."
Do we sense some shade?! We wouldn't be shocked if it was since the former heartthrob noted that this was the first time he's seen the first-time-dad since the birth of his son Silas back in April.
Nonetheless, they seemed to have had a nice reunion as Lance took to Instagram to share the meet-up to his many fans.
He said what we are all thinking!
And now it's also led Bass, the former 'N Sync star, to react with surprise.
Ch-ch-check out what Bass — who's been publicly out as gay for nine years — had to say about Jenner's take on same-sex marriage on The Meredith Vieira Show:
