In his concert, Justin reportedly said, “I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to absolutely f*cking nobody.”
The Daily Mail reports that Justin may have made the comment before performing "Cry Me a River."
Justin Timberlake performed in New York City on Wednesday night, and there's a video circulating where he seemingly says “I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to absolutely f*cking nobody.” Which fans immediately interpreted as a less-than-positive response to Britney Spears' apology over the weekend. (Note: The Daily Mail reports that he may have made the comment before performing "Cry Me a River.")

Britney's Instagram account has been made private, but she posted a video of Justin on The Tonight Show on Sunday, writing, "I wanna apologize for some of the things I wrote about in my book. If I offended any of the people I genuinely care about I am deeply sorry. I also wanted to say I am in love with Justin Timberlake’s new song ‘Selfish.’ It is soo good and how come every time I see Justin and Jimmy together I laugh so hard??? Ps ‘Sanctified’ is wow too.”
Meanwhile, Justin's "apologize to absolutely f*cking nobody" comment appears to be a complete about-face from a since-deleted Instagram statement he made in 2021, saying, “I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed. Because of my ignorance, I didn’t recognize it for all that it was while it was happening in my own life but I do not want to ever benefit from others being pulled down again.”
FYI, Justin performed at the Fontainebleau Las Vegas last month and ahead of singing "Cry Me a River" he said "no disrespect." So...unclear what's changed.
