The 2004 Super Bowl halftime show saw a "wardrobe malfunction" where Justin Timberlake revealed Janet Jackson's exposed breast during a performance.

Timberlake has faced criticism for not providing assistance to Jackson, leading to her alleged exclusion from the Grammys and other professional opportunities.

Gerrick Kennedy, a writer and cultural critic, acknowledges the public anger but argues that it perpetuates the harm done to Jackson and deprives two adults of their autonomy.

The incident resulted in a punishment on CBS, the broadcaster of the Super Bowl, and negatively impacted Jackson's career.

Despite expressing remorse, Timberlake's actions were perceived as deserting Jackson, a perception stemming from his career relying on black culture.

A growing number of people began using the hashtag #JanetJacksonAppreciationDay as they fought for "Justice for Janet."

 In 2017, Timberlake was announced as the halftime show headliner for Super Bowl LII, leading to demands for him to rectify past issues.

Spears recently praised Timberlake's song on Instagram, despite criticism. Her and Jackson appear to get along.
