  • The Super Bowl 38 halftime show is a piece of television history.

  • Quick recap.

  • Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake were performing the halftime show when Timberlake accidentally exposed Jackson's breast in an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction.

  • Although the incident was a freak accident that didn't stop the outrage from pouring in, Jackson was essentially blacklisted, and Timberlake, who faced comparatively less backlash, did barely anything to defend her.

  • All the emphasis was put on me not on Justin and, Yeah, just Justin.

  • We were friends.

  • But his apology at that year's Grammy Awards was almost worse than silence.

  • Timberlake's remorseful words consisted of nothing more than the classic.

  • Adams vented on Instagram with a Siris of mis informed and xenophobic comments.

  • So it was those kind of apologies.

  • Number eight Hannah Brown trying to be strong, trying to keep my faith, and I'm trying to rely of the thing that's far greater than me.

  • It is Patrick.

  • The event ticked some people off, including the first African American bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay.

  • It's wrong.

  • You wouldn't say it on TV you wouldn't say it on the radio, you wouldn't say it in front of your black friend.

  • Maybe you shouldn't sing along with it to a song.

  • Brown apologized through a written statement on instagram stories.

  • However, that statement also caused him a fence.

  • Brown's fellow bachelor nation member Nick Vile, called her remarks quote a really, really terrible apology that doesn't read as sincere, so much so that Brown subsequently issued a second apology.

  • What I did was something extremely serious, and I did not want to continue repeating this long history of white people, not taking accountability and responsibility for their actions when people of color black people call them out on their behavior.

  • And that is just not something that I wanted to be a part of.

  • Number seven Johnny Depp and Amber Heard the controversial relationship between Depp and Heard has been the focus of a lot of drama.
