NEW YORK — The booking of Justin Timberlake for the Super Bowl halftime show has triggered a backlash from women, minorities and others. They say Janet Jackson was unfairly forced to pay a far higher price than he ever faced for their breast-baring “wardrobe malfunction” at the big game in 2004.

The hashtag #justiceforjanet trended on social media this week after the NFL announced Timberlake would perform Feb. 4 in Minneapolis.

Some argue that Jackson fell victim to a sexist and racist double standard and received harsher treatment over a decade ago than Timberlake did, while he benefited from “white male privilege.”

Representatives for Timberlake and Jackson have not commented.

What price did either of them pay, besides increased record sales and publicity?

The only people who payed any price were radio DJ's who had harsher FCC rules to deal with. Stern became so hard to listen to due to the dumps that he left terrestrial radio.

Also television shows were heavily edited. Songs were removed from radio station rotation, and FCC fines skyrocketed, sports broadcasters had to clean up their act.

Well I don't think there was a financial "price" paid by either. But when people talk or write about this, it's "the Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction," which isn't exactly fair. Justin was the one who tore half her top off.

Can't they find other artists for the half-time show?

I've hated JT's latest music, so.

Maybe they can get the lady that throws frisbees to her pack of dogs...

Shawn Mendes sounds like JT, but better.

Let him do the half-time show.

I think Gwar should do the halftime show. That would make it watchable.

I thought Jackson engineered the stunt and told JT the day of the event.
