Justin Timberlake regrets his past sexist behavior against Britney Spears and Janet Jackson.
Taking to his Instagram on Friday, Timberlake made a public apology to Spears and Jackson for his misogynistic behavior back in the days.
“I’ve seen the messages, tags, comments, and concerns and I want to respond,” he wrote. “I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right. I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited 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.”
For the unversed, the apology has come in the light of two incidents that date back to more than 20 years.
Britney and Justin dated for a while at the start of their careers. The Mirrors singer later accused the pop star of cheating on him and defamed her in a cryptic single, Cry Me A River.
As for Janet Jackson, Timberlake is referring to the Super Bowl scandal where he pulled back part of the star's clothes and exposed her body.
