For the third time in his career, Justin Timberlake hit the field as the halftime performer at the Super Bowl. First with his band NSYNC and later as a solo artist, Timberlake has appeared at the Super Bowl more than most artists, but after the reaction to Sunday night’s half time show, we may have finally seen the end of Sunday night Timberlake.

During Timberlake’s last Super Bowl appearance in 2004, the pop star made headlines when he exposed Janet Jackson’s breast and then stepped away from the limelight to leave Jackson to deal with the fall out, which damaged her career for years. Following last night’s performance, social media let their voice be heard that between Justin Timberlake’s actions towards Jackson and his lackluster performance this year, they were not feeling Super Bowl LII.

Many fans were also upset over Timberlake’s decision to include Prince in his performance during Sunday night’s show. Although the late musician was from Minnesota, which made this year’s Super Bowl a fitting place to honour the purple one, Prince’s long history of ill-will with Timberlake, as well as his feelings towards bringing back dead artists through screens and holograms (“demonic”) was well known.


One Twitter user, Romeo Santos, even began a thread that featured receipts of Timberlake’s bad behaviour throughout his career. It reads a bit like a book, as in it’s long, so get ready:


Santos included several facts from Timberlake’s time with his ex, Britney Spears.


Santos pulls up an old clip of Timberlake saying he wouldn’t confirm whether Spears had cheated but went on to play a song about a ‘horrible woman.’ Classy.


The thread also includes a video of Spears revealing that she was caught off guard by the “Cry Me A River” video, but still refuses to speak ill of her ex.


Santos points out that Nipplegate with Jackson wasn’t the first time Timberlake grabbed a woman on stage.


And then there was this, which is just… ew.


Of course, then there was the infamous Super Bowl incident with Jackson in 2004.


Although Timberlake was the one who exposed Jackson, he seemed to let her take the blame for the incident.


That’s the face of regret?


Let’s not forget that the Britney bashing went on for years.


As for Sunday’s Super Bowl, Timberlake might not have been the most fitting performer to honour Prince.


More ew.


Timberlake has continued to put his foot in it recently with both the BET Awards and the Time’s Up movement. He’s busy, we’ll give him that.


So, um can we just get started the petition to get Pink, who slayed this year’s national anthem, as next year’s halftime act?
