It’s been 17 years since Super Bowl XXXVIII where Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake performed, and what infamously became known as “Nipplegate,” occurred. But now, after years of public outcry and admonishment, Timberlake is finally trying to right his wrongs.

In a mea culpa on Instagram, the “Cry Me A River” admitted his white, male privilege allowed him to benefit “from a system that condones misogyny and racism.” He specifically apologized to Jackson for the SB Half-Time show in which he snatched off a piece of Janet’s costume revealing her pasty-covered breast for about 1.5 seconds. She caught major flack, Timberlake not so much.

The 40-year-old former boy bander also apologized to ex-girlfriend Britney Spears. The recent NY Times doc, “Framing Britney Spears,” has re-ignited the conversation over how Justin treated Brit after their break-up and how he used it to elevate his career, while negatively impacting hers.

For Timberlake, he says the apologies are only step one. He wants to be apart of the larger conversation surrounding these issues so he can “grow” and he also wants to be “part of a world that uplifts and supports.” Of course, Twitter sounded off with their own reactions…

What do you think of Justin’s apology — too little too late or better late than never?
