The pop star took to his Instagram account Friday to issue an apology to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson. Timberlake literally said he had “benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism… as a man in a privileged position.”

“I have seen the messages, tags, comments, and concerns and I want to respond,” he wrote on Instagram.

It’s quite a statement.

“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,” Timberlake continued. “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,” he wrote.

Timberlake has been targeted by Britney’s fans ever since the release of the “New York Times documentary, Framing Britney Spears, which unveils details of her life and the treatment she received from other celebrities.

As we all saw, part of the documentary revolves around Britney’s romantic relationship with Timberlake. They dated between 1999 and 2002.

“The industry is flawed,” Timberlake continued. “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,” he added. “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.”

When it comes to Jackson, this apology is probably related to the 2004 Super Bowl halftime show. The pop star ripped off the upper part of Jackson’s dress. Yes, we all saw that. Millions of people saw it. The entire world saw it.

“I know this apology is a first step and doesn’t absolve the past,” Timberlake said. “I want to take accountability for my own missteps in all of this as well as be a part of a world that uplifts and supports.”

“I care deeply about the wellbeing of people that I love and have loved. I can do better and I will do better,” he added.

Maybe fans will stop criticizing him. Maybe not.
