After “Framing Britney Spears” presented by the New York Times was released back in February 2021, Timberlake publicly apologized to his ex-girlfriend and Janet Jackson for being responsible for her wardrobe malfunction during her Super Bowl halftime performance in 2004.
“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. I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism,” he shared in a statement at the time.
“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. I also feel compelled to respond, in part, because everyone involved deserves better and most importantly, because this is a larger conversation that I wholeheartedly want to be part of and grow from.”
