#JanetJacksonAppreciationDay Becomes Major Twitter Trend Ahead of Super Bowl

Justin Timberlake is returning to the Super Bowl halftime show today 14 years after his infamous first appearance with Janet Jackson. You know the one.

Jackson says she will not be appearing at the big game tonight, and there are still a lot of people who feel Jackson got way too much of the backlash compared to Timberlake as a result of that 2004 halftime show and the ensuing outcry/complaints to the FCC.

As of this posting, it’s the #2 trend on Twitter:
