After the controversy against him caused by a documentary on Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake apologizes.
Justin Timberlake apologized to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson after a new documentary sparked a backlash.
The singer apologized to Britney Spears for “mistakes” that he said contributed to “a system that condones misogyny and racism.”
He also admitted that he did not endorse Jackson for his controversial Super Bowl performance. Timberlake also opened up about his sexual relationship with his ex Britney Spears.
On Instagram Friday, Timberlake shared a heartfelt statement addressing both issues, saying, “I’m deeply sorry.” He added: “I care and respect these women and I know I failed.”
The ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ singer had faced new scrutiny following the release of the latest documentary examining how Britney was placed under guardianship in 2008.
Timberlake has also long been criticized for not adequately supporting Janet Jackson after her Super Bowl performance in 2004, where she accidentally exposed her chest after a wardrobe malfunction, which had caused protests across the United States.
In his new apology, Justin Timberlake added: “I have not been perfect at navigating all of this throughout my career. I know this apology is the first step and does not absolve the past. I want to take responsibility for my own mistakes in all of this, as well as being part of a world that uplifts and supports. ”
