Justin Timberlake Confirmed for Super Bowl 2018 & Janet Jackson Fans Want ‘Justice’ 

Justin Timberlake is returning to the Super Bowl after accidentally initiating Nipplegate in 2004.

Timberlake was rumored, and now confirmed, to be performing in the 2018 Super Bowl halftime show, and many fans are upset, because … what about Janet Jackson? Jackson’s career took the brunt of the heat when Timberlake exposed her nipple to millions of fans.

According to NPR, that “wardrobe malfunction” of 2004 earned Jackson a lifetime Super Bowl ban “and sharp criticism that never seemed to extend towards Timberlake.” The hypocrisy has not been forgotten. Many fans see Timberlake’s return to Super Bowl as a slap to Jackson, and want #JusticeforJanet.

“Justin needs to bring Janet out” NO! The NFL had her banned for over a decade & they’d lift it just to make HIM look good? #JusticeForJanet pic.twitter.com/0ocw87LZQC
