Jessica Biel slammed for 'I love you' comment on Justin Timberlake's apology to Britney Spears, Janet Jackson
Some social media users wondered why Jessica Biel left the supportive 'I love you' message despite Justin Timberlake cheating on her
Jessica Biel's show of support for her husband Justin Timberlake is making waves on social media for all the wrong reasons. Jessica Biel is being called out for her "I love you" response to Justin Timberlake's Instagram apology to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson. Timberlake has been under fire after the 'Framing Britney Spears' documentary came out after both social media and news outlets took him to task for building his own career on the ruins of both pop stars' careers.
Close to being canceled, Timberlake put out a written apology on his Instagram page. In the comments section, he was blasted for posting the apology on his Instagram with the hope that he had had the decency to reach out to Spears and Jackson personally to apologize. One commenter stated: "Alexa, play 'too little too late' bye JoJo", while another said: "It’s just so painfully obvious that the only reason this apology is here is because of the documentary. Where have you been for 17 years? At least it’s a start, and I hope you apologized to both Britney and Janet privately." Other commenters agreed that he was only delivering a PR-crafted apology to save himself from being canceled after not "being vocal" for nearly twenty years. In his post with the two-page apology, he had said that as "a man in a privileged position I have to be vocal about this" and how he could "do better" and "will do better."
However, even as people are commenting about Timberlake's apology, more than eight hundred people have also responded to Jessica Biel's supportive "I love you" comment to her husband's Instagram post. And a majority of them are overwhelmingly critical of her decision to stand by her man. In fact most left long comments about depending on Timberlake to keep his career. One commenter said: "@jessicabiel because you didn’t really have a real career he could get another out of.. sorry sis. Not trying to offend, but he has leeched off of women for too long. He needs to post a video addressing the issues in Hollywood, NOT apologizing for his person life, but for not standing up when it was the right thing to do." Another said: "I’m all for live and let live except for when you use women or throw them under the bus to make your career better it’s not right and as a woman @jessicabiel allows too much shit from this guy his junk cannot be that good. Janet help Nsync out by letting them tour with her and she was always nice to Justin and Britney was young and vulnerable he should have done better by them both! He wants over 15 years to Apologize while Britney had to deal with a lot and I feel so sorry for her I really do. Jessica just likes the money and wants that over her pride!," said one commentator. Others left shorter posts but no less cutting like: "this is so cringy please stop."
Even on Twitter, Biel's "I love you" message has drawn ire. "Justin Timberlake : I contributed to misogyny and racism Jessica Biel : I love you," said one Twitter user sarcastically. Another said: "I can't with Jessica Biel commenting "I love you" under Justin PU**IFIED Timberlake's post after he allegedly cheated on her and publicly ruined two WOMEN'S reputations! #FreeBritney #FramingBritneySpears". Another tweet said: "Jessica biel commenting “I love you” on Justin’s shitty Instagram apology is just [chef's kiss and perfect emoticon].

A user wondered why Biel was supporting him despite Timberlake cheating on her, tweeting: "Jessica biel looking like boo boo the fool underneath Justin’s post talking i love you...girl he cheated on you TWICE you’re a victim", while another echoed the opinion saying, "Jessica Biel under the post talking about I love you so much. Lmao girl, your man cheats on you once every six months. Sit there and eat your food." Another invented how another conversation could go, referencing her acceptance of anything Timberlake has or will do: "Jessica Biel: I love you. Justin Timberlake: i have cheated on you multiple times".
