Justin Timberlake appeared to throw shade at his ex-girlfriend Britney Spears during his “One Night Only” birthday concert in New York City on Wednesday. Addressing the audience before performing “Cry Me a River,” he stated, “I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to absolutely f–king nobody.”

The comment comes after Spears revealed that the song indicated that Spears cheated on him. Timberlake’s remarks were slammed online, especially considering Spears had recently praised his new single, “Selfish.”

‘You’re pathetic’

Fans were not pleased by the ‘NSYNC’ member’s statements and took to social media to express their thoughts. A fan tweeted, “@jtimberlake you’re pathetic, bullying Britney is what you did to build your career, cuz otherwise without her you wouldn’t have one & you still continue to do it. #canceljustintimberlake #JustinTimberlake #BritneySpears #JusticeForBritney.” Another tweet read, “@jtimberlake take your fake apologies and shove it. Britney has never hurt you, yet you still continue to do it, cuz your a misogynistic bully, & without Britney you’re irrelevant. Sit your ass down. #JustinTimberlake #BritneySpears #canceljustintimberlake #JusticeForBritney.”

Some fans sided with Justin Timberlake

Some fans appeared to side with Timberlake in the ongoing drama. A fan tweeted, “You called it! We had every right to be suspicious of that book “apology” from her. “Because she’s so sweet” MY ASS. She was being manipulative. He knows her and won’t fall for it. It tells me that she was *always* like this. Anyway, stream and buy #selfish by #JustinTimberlake.” A tweet read, “HELL YEAH HE DID (It’s mostly towards her fans and Janet delulus demanding those apologies) GOOD FOR HIM Keep ignoring the haters and stand your ground, dude. We love you.”

‘She is just a bitch’

Another clip of a recent performance of Timberlake is going viral where he calls someone a “bitch” on stage. “Sometimes in your life, you think you found the one but then one day you find out, she is just a bitch,” said Timberlake, allegedly referring to Spears.

Moreover, it appears that Spears is retaliating to the drama as she took to Instagram to set the record straight. “Someone told me someone was talking shit about me on the streets!!! Do you want to bring it to the court or will you go home crying to your mom like you did last time ??? I’m not sorry !!!” she wrote in a post, seemingly calling out Timberlake.

Britney Spears praised Timberlake

Spears shared a few clips of Timberlake’s appearances on talk shows Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in an Instagram post on Sunday. “I wanna apologise for some of the things I wrote about in my book. If I offended any of the people I genuinely care about I am deeply sorry. I also wanted to say I am in love with Justin Timberlake’s new song Selfish. It is soo good and how come every time I see Justin and Jimmy together, I laugh so hard??? (sic)” she wrote.
