Timbaland apologized after facing backlash for saying Justin Timberlake should’ve put a “muzzle” on Britney Spears over her memoir.
Missy Elliott and the internet told Timbaland to keep Britney Spears’ name out his mouth, and it looks like he’s listening. Let us break it down.
In a viral video, Timbaland — longtime collaborator of Justin Timberlake — made comments saying JT should have muzzled Britney Spears after bombshells about the relationship came in her bestselling book, The Woman in Me.
The internet wasn’t happy, with fans munching post at the producer, even saying someone should muzzle him. On IG Live, Timbaland said Missy Elliott texted him to make clear that what he said about Britney Spears wasn’t right and she did not support that behavior.” He has since apologized.
The saying will never get old: Everyone, just leave Britney alone.
