Jessica Biel Reacts to Justin Timberlake Apologizing to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson

She commented on his Instagram post. 👀

Ever since The New York Times' released the Framing Britney Spears documentary earlier this month, celebrities have been getting called out. Brit's fans created the #WeAreSorryBritney hashtag on social media to share clips from the media and people who mistreated her over the years. Justin Timberlake was one of those people.

Britney and Justin famously dated from 1999 to 2002 and their breakup was heavily covered in the media. Justin is facing criticism on how he crafted a narrative of Britney being a cheater and solely to blame for their breakup. Also, let's not forget how he exposed Janet Jackson's nipple on camera during their Super Bowl 2004 performance and didn't defend her when she was publically slut-shamed for it.

Justin recently apologized in an Instagram post and his wife, Jessica Biel, is supporting him through the controversy. She left an encouraging comment: "I love you. ❤️"

You can read his full statement below:

I’ve seen the messages, tags, comments, and concerns and I want to respond. 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.

I also feel compelled to respond, in part, because everyone involved deserves better and most importantly, because this is al larger conversation that I wholeheartedly want to be part of and grow from…

The industry is flawed. It sets men, especially white men, up for success. It’s designed this way. As a man in a privileged position I have to be vocal about this. Because of my ignorance, I didn’t recognize it for all that it was while it was happening in my own life but I do not want to ever benefit from others being pulled down again.

I have not been perfect in navigating all of this throughout my career. I know this apology is a first step and doesn’t absolve the past. I want to take accountability for my own missteps in all of this as well as be part of a world that uplifts and supports.

I care deeply about the wellbeing of the people I love and have loved. I can do better and I will do better.

We'll hold you to that, Justin.
