Jeez. Who cares?

And this is in the news because........? What's the point?

What an idiot.

Wow. The power of woke is far-reaching. Justin has to go back to something that happened 17 years ago, and apologize for his career not taking a hit like Janet's did. Because he's white and male. I'm surprised it as not also because he's straight. Absolute nonsense - unless Justin purposefully caused the malfunction, in which case he should have been fined and possibly arrested. I don't recall reading anything stating that he had done anything wrong at that time.

Yes, men are the real victims here.

She was a high-maintenance whack-job and he just wanted away from her. Several of us have dated one of those.

Now he has to apologize for it? Give me a break.

The only thing he should apologies is wearing that ridiculous beanie inside.

Yes, men are the real victims here.

Apparently so.

Each and every article about or related to abuse of women.

And of course, no posters are allowed speculate why, for fear of upsetting some fragile male egos.

Good on him for apologizing, Britney has been put upon by men she should have been able to trust.

The power of woke is far-reaching.

It certainly is. Delighted it causes grown men to tremble in fear and check their privelege.

Long may it last.

US cultural hegemony, eh.

To be fair, I'm just as interested about what happens to Britney, as much as I am over Rokia Traore, but the latter is of no interest (wild guess, could be wrong) to the majority of the American demographic.

Which is a shame.

"I've seen the messages, tags, comments, and concerns and I want to respond," Timberlake said Friday on Instagram.

If this is the reason he responds after so much time has passed, he is not sincere. If he was sincere, he would have apologized many moons ago. It is like a criminal (rapist, con artist, you name it) apologizing when they are caught. They are only sorry that they got caught, not for the crimes. Having written this, as others have written, who cares? As for privilege, give me a break. Certainly some white men are privileged by birth in an affluent family and family contacts in high places, but most that have attained anything worthwhile most likely worked their backsides off to get it.

I am sick of people playing the race card with it.

And then goes on to play the race card:

If it was a black man that did it, what would it be called then?

I like him. Good actor.

This isn't even news and all of them are losers and dummies. Turn to the next page.

As to JJ, it seems they planed it in advance an it went wrong. A stupid idea by a stupid young man. And I found his “apology” at the subsequent Grammys disingenuous.

But but that was years ago. Enough. It was a nipple. big deal.

I am far from a JT fan but the whole Janet thing was staged and I am sick of people playing the race card with it. If it was a black man that did it, what would it be called then? He was dating her then anyways.

Timberlake has to apologize for the crime of being born in order to retain his employability in the Leftist entertainment industry. It’s a bizarro world we live in.

Delighted ("wokeness") causes grown men to tremble in fear and check their privelege.


The ol' "white privilege" nonsense. It's socialist jealousy, nothing more.
