The singer performed in NYC Wednesday for a one-night-only show, and there’s footage of him going around on social media that’s raising eyebrows — specifically, a clip of him winding down one song and transitioning into the next, where he says something curious.
Check it out … JT tells the crowd that he’d like to take this moment to apologize — but then hits a brief pause before he finishes his thought and says … “to absolutely f***ing nobody.”
Some in the audience cheered right then and there — but this video is NOT being well-received online in the aftermath … for a couple reasons, depending on how you look at it.
For starters, this is immediately being perceived by many as a straight-up shot to Britney — which is probably spot-on considering he reportedly went right into “Cry Me a River” right after this … and everyone knows that track is famously about his popstar ex.
The other celeb people are expressing outrage on behalf of is Janet — and that’s ’cause Thursday is the 20-year anniversary of her Super Bowl performance with him, where he pulled her boob out in front of millions … something folks are still angry about even today.
There was a lot of controversy over this a few years ago when a doc dove into the topic in great detail, and JT ended up apologizing at the time not just to JJ, but Britney as well.
He issued a full-blown statement, etc. … but now, it seems he maybe didn’t mean it? 🤷🏽♂️
