Justin Timberlake told the world that he is sorry for his past actions, but the world doesn’t seem to be buying it. As a matter of fact, fans think that Justin’s public apology to both Britney Spears and Janet Jackson for doing them wrong in the past is several decades too little and too late. In other words, they think it’s just a publicity stunt in order for him to looks like the new ‘good guy.’ Here’s what you need to know.
In a statement posted to his Instagram account on Friday, the singer issued an apology to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson for “missteps” that he says contributed to “a system that condones misogyny and racism.”
Fans Are Not Buying Justin Timberlake’s Apology To Britney Spears And Janet Jackson
This comes after the fallout Justin has been getting because of The New York Times documentary, “Framing Britney Spears.”
If that weren’t enough, people are definitely reminding him or how he did Janet Jackson wrong. Justin has also gotten a lot of criticism for his performance with Janet during the 2004 Super Bowl. After Janet’s wardrobe malfunction, it was his actions or maybe even the lack thereof that contributed largely to Janet’s public scrutiny. Up until now, Justin has not said a word about it.
“I’ve seen the messages, tags, comments, and concerns and I want to respond. I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right,” The Trolls actor said in his statement.
“I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism,” Justin said.
Of course, it didn’t take very long for fans and critics to react to Justin’s public statement.
Many comments have included, “Oh NOW he sees the comments, tags, and messages?? Bullshiz. People have been saying this for years and years now. 100pc his management company and PR are trying to avoid cancellation and asked him to sign off on this with no input. He’s so gross,” along with, “His statement is self-serving. I would like to know if he reached out personally to Britney and Janet to express his sincerest apologies, or did he just express himself on Instagram for his own benefit… I would think that he would include that he has reached out to these women personally but you can’t do that if you haven’t.”
Another critic wrote, “Much too little, much too late, only because of the documentary, written by PR and legal and not himself. I can’t stand him and never will, so I really can’t say. Nothing he could ever say could change how I think about him…all due to his behavior then.”
So far Britney Spears herself has not made any comments about Justin’s apology.
