Back in 2004 Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake became involved in an incident during their performance at Super Bowl.
As the song was going to its end, Justin ripped off one of Janet’s panels that lead to revealing her right breast to the audience.
According to her words, the artist had to reveal just her lacy red bra, but something went wrong.
Despite the fact, that Janet Jackson apologized to anyone who could be offended by this situation, she was the only one to be blamed for everything.
The woman got
immediately blacklisted by MTV, the USA radio and was even prohibited to be
present at Grammy Awards 2004, while Timberlake not only attended this event
but also won the best pop vocal album and the best male pop vocal performance
A long time
passed until the moment when Justin decided to apologize for that situation and
admitted it was his fault too. He accentuated, that blaming Jackson for
everything showed the negative tendencies in the USA to blame women and
especially ethnic people.
After his public apologize, it became known that Justin Timberlake was announced to perform at this year’s Super Bowl what made fans stand up for Janet Jackson.
Thousands of social networks users started writing posts with the hashtag
saying “#JusticeforJanet” asking to give Janet right to share this performance
with Justin as they did 14 years ago.
