Justin Timberlake has just been officially announced as the headliner for the 2018 Super Bowl, and the Internet isn’t happy about it at all.

The last time Timberlake performed during the Super Bowl halftime, it was with Janet Jackson, 13 years ago, and the result was a “wardrobe malfunction” that forever changed television.

However, many who saw the announcement by NFL and sponsor Pepsi that Timberlake would be coming back to the Super Bowl saw the incredible double standard that Timberlake and Jackson were facing after that last performance.

And it didn’t escape the Internet’s notice that the white man is getting to perform, while the Black woman is still banned by the NFL. The hashtag #JusticeForJanet is now trending as many demand that Jackson be treated the same way Timberlake is.
