#JusticeForJanet: Newscaster Under Fire For ‘Disgustingly Sexist’ Resurfaced Janet Jackson Interview

Published: Monday 22nd Nov 2021 by Rashad

Much like its ‘Framing Britney Spears’ documentary, the New York Times’ “Malfunction: The Dressing Down of Janet Jackson” – which premiered via FX/HULU Friday (November 19) – explored the who’s, what’s, and why’s that led to the career damage of one of Pop music’s most revered female acts.

Also like the Spears flick before it, ‘Malfunction’ is inciting its subject’s fans to take action – this time in a movement to right the wrongs that followed the fallout of Jackson’s 2004 Super Bowl incident.

Chief among those in the sights of the #JusticeforJanet movement is EMMY-winning news anchor and TV producer Mark S. Allen.  See why inside:

 

As seen in the 2007 clip above, Jackson was joined by ‘Why Did I Get Married?’ creator and co-star Tyler Perry on the promo trail in support of the film.  While visiting a CBS-affiliate news station in Sacramento, the duo were blindsided by questions about the Super Bowl – with Allen leading the charge with inappropriate jokes about ‘wardrobe malfunctions’ and more.

Though Janet opted to remain silent during the awkward encounter, Perry – to no avail – attempted to redirect the interviewer’s line of questioning.  The unnerving scene made a ruckus at the time as the station was flooded with over 19,000 e-mails in the singer’s defense, prompting them and Allen to lend an apology before he was terminated (as seen here).  He would go on to win multiple EMMYs, produce shows for Comedy Central and others, and be arrested for DUI in the years since.

In the wake of the FX/HULU doc, the 14-year-old incident has presently made its way to trending status as advocates for the Pop Queen are demanding another public apology from Mark and have taken to his social media handles to make sure their complaints are heard loud and clear.

      Racism 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 It’s so easy for you to cry racism when something is said or done that you don’t agree with, all it shows is that you and your people are lazy and need a box of tissues ready everytime you read or listen the news. Cry them black tears for us.

  7. Your Name November 22, 2021

    If Janet went through this on live TV, I could only imagine the hell she dealt with behind the scenes.

  10. #TheTruth November 22, 2021

    Only fake prude Americans #1 producers AND consumers of pørn would complain about a fu<king covered up tit and not give a sh!t about their gun policy, s€x education, social security and the list goes on…
    What a terrible mentality. Welcome to the American Dream.

  11. Vert November 22, 2021

    Who is this man? He looks like he gets his booty cheeks clapped by kotonga.

    • True Tea November 22, 2021

      He’s definitely serving Shawn Mendes, with his messy a$$. At the end of the day, the only Queen on that panel was Ms. Miss Jackson is you nasty. Those Industry “peasants” could never.

      • True Tea November 22, 2021

        If you*

  12. marilyn monh-O-E ® 👠(#1 DIVA) November 22, 2021

    Diva is running a #JusticeForJustin campaign 💅🏿 Stripper Janet set this up! Y’all are blaming on Justin for that. Oh god! It’s Unbelievable!

  13. Munchie November 22, 2021

    Woooow I remember watching this interview when it came out… it was really down played back then. I mean it was somewhat discussed. But not being reported like it is now. I’m glad people are exposing it though.

  14. eric November 22, 2021

    I couldn’t watch the whole interview. It was painful to listen to. Only interview I saw at the time was the one Janet agreed to with Oprah, and now Oprah hasn’t been so nice to Janet and her family either, allowing for more lies that Janet and her brothers have to defend against.

  15. Nico November 23, 2021

    We stand for Janet then and now . We love Janet forever 💕
