Speaking on the same lines, one individual posted, “Def gotta see the documentary. Idk how he’s to blame for Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction though.” Another shared, “It’s not about the wardrobe malfunction. It’s about him tossing her under the bus, failing to speak up for Janet afterwards, etc. He was all over her, bragged how much he was a die hard fan hers since NSYNC, his bedroom was full of Janet Jackson posters.” One said, “His JUST now apologizing for having Janet Jackson blackballed after HE caused her wardrobe malfunction at the super bowl in which he went on to have much success after this. He slut shamed Brittney & she’s never been the same sense. She’s mentally effected from him & the industry.”

One user stated, “Janet Jackson organized the stunt and Timberlake was a willing participant. In the end it was Jackson who chose to bare her breast during the super bowl halftime show and she got the publicity she wanted while claiming it was a"wardrobe malfunction" Not sure why he's apologizing.” Another expressed, “Honestly, I didn’t realize the fallout @JanetJackson faced after that “wardrobe malfunction”. I thought it was planned and benefited her & Timberlake. I’m late, but I’m pissed off that somehow she took the hit while JT soared.” One added, “janet lost money, deals, the respect from the general public, radios stopped playing her songs, mtv wasn’t showing her music videos anymore, one of the most successful artists of all time disappeared from an ENTIRE generation, her legacy was totally damaged.”
