Even though Justin Timberlake has broken his silence and apologized after being caught on camera with Palmer co-star Alisha Wainwright, that hasn’t been enough for some people. Podcaster and former TMZpersonality Van Lathan took to Twitter to call out Timberlake’s words, bringing up the singer’s famous Super Bowl XXXVIIIperformance with Janet Jackson.
That notorious 2004 game featured a halftime performance with Timberlake and Jackson when a now-infamous “wardrobe malfunction” ended up exposing Jackson’s breast on national television. While Timberlake’s career was mostly unscathed by the incident, Lathan pointed out that Jackson’s was “forever changed and reputation marred.”
When confronted by another Twitter user about Lathan’s accusation, he doubled down on his lack of defense of Jackson in the initial wake of the incident.
Last year, ahead of his return to the Super Bowl halftime show, Timberlake did addressthe situation, admitting that he “stumbled through” the performance. “I had my wires crossed, and it’s just something that you have to look back on and go, like, ‘OK, well, you know, you can’t change what’s happened but you can move forward and learn from it.'”
