Justin Timberlake has finally responded to fan pressure after the release of FX’s new documentary, “Framing Britney Spears,” offering an apology.

Many fans called Timberlake out for his role in the sexism and misogyny that derailed Britney Spear’s career and mental wellness and his treatment of Janet Jackson after their 2004 Super bowl performance–which led to Jackson’s career derailment as well.

According to Variety, Timberlake took to his social media accounts to post an apology to both women.

“I’ve seen the messages, tags, comments, and concerns, and I want to respond,” he wrote. “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.”

Timberlake continued, “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.”

ney Spears for three years in the early 2000s, and the pair enjoyed media and fan success as a popstar power couple. But when their relationship ended, Timberlake used the breakup to vilify Spears, painting her as a “slut” and a “cheater,” which led her to experience severe backlash from their fans and media alike.

Timberlake released his infamous “Cry me a River” video about a cheating lover and even used a Britney look-a-like in the video to shame her publicly.

Then in 2004, Timberlake performed in the Halftime Show at the XXXVIII Super Bowl with Janet Jackson, where he infamously ripped off a portion of Jackson’s top that revealed her nipple.

After that performance and its subsequent fallout, Jackson was made to take the sole blame and was forced to apologize. At the same time, Timberlake cowardly avoided any responsibility and became an industry darling.

The entertainment industry is following the T.I. and Tiny sex scandal with intense interest. Blogs are even digging up old stories about the couple’s proclivities for threesomes.

Everyone has a story to tell about their own drug-fueled encounters with the horny couple.

If you recall, back in 2017, Rob Kardashian got into it with T.I. on Instagram for commenting on his parenting skills.

Rob, 33, claimed the rapper enjoyed a threesome with Tiny and Rob’s ex-fiancée Blac Chyna, 32.

“Since TI wanna chime in on business that don’t concern him let’s talk about the threesome you had with Chyna and your baby mama Tiny. Don’t speak on my daughter when u having threesomes with young Chy and Tiny ::: and I put that on my daughters life since u wanna speak on my daughter,,, damn shame. Chyna told me everything about your threesomes with you and her and Tiny. U got no moves bro ;;; Correction ::: TI paid Chyna to have sex with Tiny and him.”

T.I., 40, was eager to respond to Rob’s accusation when TMZ caught up with him at Los Angeles International Airport.

“Don’t tell women’s business. That’s bad. That’s very, very bad,” said the father of seven.

“Poor character. Flawed, you know what I mean? If a woman trusted you and confided in you with secrets and stuff like that, you don’t ever let that — you don’t do that. Secrets are sacred, you don’t do that. That’s a whole other level of f—boy s–t right there.”

It’s an open secret that Blac Chyna was T.I. and Tiny’s favorite dancer at King of Diamonds strip club back in 2013.

T.I. and his wife Tiny, real name Tameka Harris, 45, are accused of drugging and sexually assaulting at least 30 women over the span of nearly two decades.

The fallout from the allegations has demolished the couple’s careers. VH1 canceled their reality TV show T.I. & Tiny: Family Hustle and Disney reportedly fired T.I. from the Ant-Man 3 movie.

Rudy Giuliani Suspended AGAIN From YouTube For Election Fraud Claims

For the second time in two months, YouTube has suspended Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump’s personal counsel, for wrongly alleging the 2020 election was rigged.

Bloomberg News announced that the former mayor of New York, who led Trump’s attempts to reverse November’s outcome, would be barred from posting new videos for two weeks.

The suspension was also attributed to Giuliani’s promotion of nicotine, according to the video-sharing giant.

A YouTube rep told Bloomberg in a statement, “We removed content from the Rudy W. Giuliani channel for violating our sale of regulated goods policy, which prohibits content facilitating the use of nicotine, and our presidential election integrity policy.” Adding, “Additionally, in accordance with our long-standing strikes system, we issued a strike against the Rudy W. Giuliani channel, which temporarily restricts uploading or live-streaming.”

If a user violates YouTube’s content policies for the second time in a 90-day span, their uploading privileges are suspended for two weeks.

Rudy Giuliani has been barred from profiting from videos on YouTube. Bloomberg announced that if Giuliani violates the site’s rules a third time in the same period, his channel will be permanently shut down.

Giuliani, 76, was removed from YouTube’s Partner Network for at least 30 days in January, stopping him from profiting from advertisements that appear on his posts. For a week, he was even banned from posting videos.

At the time, YouTube accused Giuliani of consistently breaching its rules by spreading allegations of election fraud.

“American Votes Counted in Foreign Countries” and “68% ERROR Rate In Votes PROVES Deliberate Fraud” were among the videos on Giuliani’s site, which has more than 580,000 subscribers.

Dominion Voting Systems has filed a $1.3 billion lawsuit against the former mayor, arguing that the voting machine corporation corrupted the presidential election.

Dr. Seuss Enterprises Will Stop Publishing Six Books Due To Racist Images

After months of debate, Dr. Seuss Enterprises will stop publishing six of its beloved books due to insensitive and racist imagery.

The company announced on Tuesday. The news came on the late author’s birthday, known as “Read Across America Day.” The books that will be pulled are “The Cat’s Quizzer,” “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” “If I Ran the Zoo,” “McElligot’s Pool,” “On Beyond Zebra!,” and “Scrambled Eggs Super!.”

In a statement to the Associated Press, the company explained, “these books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong.” They went on to add, “ceasing sales of these books is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr. Seuss Enterprises’ catalog represents and supports all communities and families.”

Dr. Seuss Enterprises decided to cease publishing and licensing the texts last year after reviewing claims about its books. The company says that it listened to readers, teachers, and other specialists’ feedback as part of its review process. They also consulted with experts to review the titles within their lineup of children’s publications.

In recent years, Dr. Seuss’s books have come under fire for problematic imagery. Several school districts across the U.S. no longer promote Dr. Seuss’s books on “Read Across America Day.” This includes Loudon County, Virginia district. They said that “research in recent years has revealed strong racial undertones in many books written/illustrated by Dr. Seuss.”

President Joe Biden refrained from mentioning Dr. Seuss during his “Read Across America Day” proclamation, steering away from the late author who many presidents have mentioned on the day promoting literature.
