JUSTIN Timberlake has been slammed by fans for apologizing to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson because of “the pressure put on him.”
Justin has been criticized in recent days for past comments he made about his ex-girlfriend Britney, and the way he failed to stand up for Janet after their shocking Super Bowl 2004 performance.

Justin apologized to Britney for his behavior
In his apology, written on the Notes app, he said: “I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefitted from a system that condones misogyny and racism.
“I specifically want to apologize to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed.”
But fans were not so quick to forgive, with any saying it was “too little too late.
“Let’s normalize calling Justin Timberlake garbage with no further explanations needed,” suggested one fan.

“That Janet Jackson apology is 3 decades late.”
“Justin Timberlake thinks a shortnotesapp apology is accountability for the pain he caused Britney and Janet……the audacity of men (sic),” added another.
“I’m not going to forgive #JustinTimberlake anytime soon, especially since he’s only apologising because of all the pressure that’s been put on him,” tweeted one Britney fan.
“I would have respected him a lot more if he had come forward of his own accord.”

Justin and Britney dated from 1998-2002.
Although the pair’s relationship seemed perfect at the time, fans have come down on Justin in the following years for how he spoke about his ex-girlfriend after their split.
Many believed Justin made Britney into the “villain” of their break-up, which soon led to her downward spiral including drug use accusations and hospitalizations.

He continued to egg on the rumors during a 2003 interview with Barbara Walters, as the former NSYNC member revealed he promised Britney to never reveal the reason for their breakup.
Despite his alleged promise, Justin seemingly confirmed the cheating rumors when he released the Cry Me a River video.
The song launched his solo career.
