During an interview televised during NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” broadcast, Mike Tirico asked Timberlake if the NFL had addressed the incident with him.
The singer smiled and said, “That won’t happen again.”
Timberlake, the 10-time Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter, rose to fame with the boy band 'N Sync. He has since had solo hits such as "Sexy Back," "Cry Me a River" and "Rock Your Body."
Timberlake also had a hit with "Can't Stop the Feeling" on the soundtrack for the animated movie, "Trolls."
While Jackson remains banned from singing at the Super Bowl. Several people on Twitter were angered by the choice of Timberlake.
“It had better damn well be a 15 minute apology to Janet Jackson for hanging her out to dry in 2004,” one person tweeted.
Another tweeted that Timberlake was “still ensuring white privilege remains in style in 2017. Meanwhile, Janet Jackson is still left in the cold.”
“ My only request is that you don't perform any of the music inspired by her brother or any Black artist. You love our culture, but disrespect our people.”
