People Are Reexamining The Whole Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake Super Bowl Moment After The New Britney Doc

"The Britney doc coming out Super Bowl weekend..."

It's Super Bowl Sunday, but some fans have their eyes on a different championship game: 2004's Super Bowl XXXVIII, aka the one with the infamous Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake incident.

In short, during the halftime show, Justin ripped off some fabric from Janet's outfit, exposing her breast.

Whether it was a wardrobe malfunction or a publicity stunt, the difference in aftermath between the two singers was huge.

As Janet's career was severely damaged following the incident, some fans have been marking "Janet Jackson Appreciation Day" for a few years:

Happy Colin Kaepernick & Janet Jackson Appreciation Day!

However, this Super Bowl has something different going for it. It's a few days after the documentary Framing Britney Spears was released. Although it largely deals with Britney's conservatorship, the doc does discuss how Justin's career profited from the way his breakup with Britney was portrayed.

Subsequently, many have been reexamining and emphasizing Justin's moment with Janet:

Justin Timberlake’s career catapulted at the expense of two brilliant women in Pop music (Janet Jackson & Britney Spears) & to this day, he has yet to take ownership of his grotesque actions.
