Timberlake was rumored, and now confirmed, to be performing in the 2018 Super Bowl halftime show, and many fans are upset, because ... what about Janet Jackson? Jackson's career took the brunt of the heat when Timberlake exposed her nipple to millions of fans.
According to NPR, that "wardrobe malfunction" of 2004 earned Jackson a lifetime Super Bowl ban "and sharp criticism that never seemed to extend towards Timberlake." The hypocrisy has not been forgotten. Many fans see Timberlake's return to Super Bowl as a slap to Jackson, and want #JusticeforJanet.
Please trend #JusticeForJanet. The NFL still hasn't lifted the ban but Justin is free to perform its wrong and she deserves better.— ً (@LuxxSOCIAL) October 23, 2017
