JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE TOLD TO AVOID ANOTHER ‘NIPPLEGATE’ AT SUPER BOWLFebruary 1, 2018
A parents group has told Justin Timberlake to make sure his upcoming Super Bowl halftime show is not a repeat of the infamous “Nipplegate” performance in 2004.
The aftermath of that wardrobe malfunction drew over 500K complaints to the FCC and saw Timberlake let Janet Jackson take the fall for their joint efforts in exposing one of her breasts on live television.
Well now the conservative censorship advocacy group Parents Television Council is begging the 37-year-old to keep his act family friendly.
“The fallout of your performance during Super Bowl XXXVIII has left an indelible mark. You really threw us—and millions of parents who were watching with their kids. The now-infamous wardrobe malfunction was the biggest news story for weeks, even at a time when the nation had launched into war in Iraq,” the Parents Television Council said in an open letter to the singer. “As we approach this Sunday’s Super Bowl LII and its halftime show during which you’ll be performing, we ask you to keep the halftime show friendly and safe for the children watching, and who may be hoping to emulate you one day.”
The statement continued: “The Super Bowl, and particularly its halftime show, should be the hallmark of entertainment that’s both appealing and a safe place for the entire family.”
The Council ended by wishing Timberlake well on his performance.
“Thank you for considering our urgent appeal for a positive, uplifting and entertaining halftime show on Sunday. Because our Children are Watching. Break a leg.”
While Timberlake has said he has no plans to do anything racy, we’re still doing a novena in hopes that Janet makes an appearance during his Super Bowl set. #JusticeForJanet
