Ahead Of The Super Bowl Halftime Show, Black Twitter Responds With #JanetJacksonAppreciationDay
There are many who are still upset that Justin Timberlake has been allowed to perform during the Super Bowl Halftime show and Janet Jackson, who suffered a wardrobe malfunction in 2004 while dancing alongside Timberlake, has not been afforded the same luxury.
Rumors began to swirl that to make amends for what happened, The Man of The Woods artists would bring out Ms. Jackson during his performance. Janet got wind of the rumors and took to Twitter to end them.

So while many are gearing up for Sunday’s (Feb.4) match up between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles, Black Twitter is making sure the world knows they appreciate all Janet Jackson has contributed to music, and they’re doing so with the hashtag Janet Jackson Appreciation Day.
Started by former NFL player turned film director Mathew Cherry, users took to Twitter to tweet about their favorite Janet Jackson performance, song or video, and if you somehow forgot how dope Janet is, this hashtag is here to remind you.

Janet Jackson has long been an outspoken supporter of LGBTQ folks, but my favorite factoid about her is that “Together Again” was written in memory of a friend who died of AIDS.#JanetJacksonAppreciationDay
