Twitter immediately took issue with Justin Timberlake being confirmed as the 2018 Super Bowl Halftime Show performer. And for good reason. Let's not forget the way he let Janet Jackson deal with the repercussions alone after their notorious 2004 "Nipplegate" Super Bowl performance, which prompted the FCC to introduce a five-second delay during live broadcasts.
Well, shortly after the news confirming Timberlake's performance broke, TMZ Sports reported that the NFL doesn't have an official ban on Jackson performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
And since that was reported Monday afternoon, people have been urging JT to use this opportunity as a means to make things right with Jackson over the way he handled the fallout from their performance 13 years ago. People think that should mean sharing the stage with the icon or at the very least offering a heartfelt apology.
Check out these reactions.
Talk to 'em! Yes!
Damn ... "the little snake."
If he did invite her, would Janet accept his invitation?
Hey, Justin ... "don't be so quick to walk away."
How do you think the Super Bowl LII Halftime Show will pan out?
