McDonald's To Drop Timberlake Sponsorship - Timberlake also stood to jeopardize a marketing relationship with McDonald's although a spokesman for the fast food giant said Monday -- while declining to say whether Timberlake will appear in future ads -- "everyone involved has said it was an unfortunate incident and their apologies are in order."

Titty flasher is more like it. He actually came across as a sexual assaulter.

I don't get the whole Justin Timberlake thing. He's an ugly little runt IMO. Yesterday Rush called him "nelly." LOL.

Isn't McD's new slogan, "I'm lovin' it?"

How does that interplay with his assault antic?

But a red bra underneath the bustier was supposed to keep Jackson fully covered, the singer contests. "Justin was supposed to pull away the bustier to reveal a red lace bra underneath, but the garment collapsed," according to Stephen Huvane, a Jackson spokesman. "I'm not going to get into the details of how it was planned, but that's how it was supposed to go."

Translation: If I try to explain it further it will only prove that I am lying.

Thanks. They should drop him because he's a liar, he's gross and he's stupid. Oh, yeah, and no talent.

Maybe the eternal teenagers who run MTV/Viacom lack insight into grown-ups. Grown up men don't watch soft-core porn/whores with their mothers, wives, and children in the room.

Talk about more money than brains... What company would want to be associated with this bunch?

First McDonalds cuts Kobe, now Timberlake.

Hmmm. Who's in charge over there at McDonalds?

Good for McDonald's! These people need to know lots of us don't approve of their behavior and we won't support it either.

IIRC, McDonald's dropped Kobe too. Interesting that both incidents involed a real or perceived assault on a woman.

I get into arguments with my female friends all the time over this little mouse of a person. He has not one masculine trait, he acts like queer eye for the straight guy and nothing but a little pee on. For my money the OCC guys are much more akin to what we guys consider masculine and are much better representative of us. Guns, Motorcycles, Muscles, Trucks, Etc. -

Jackson performed a sexually charged duet with Justin Timberlake during his song "Rock Your Body" during Sunday's Super Bowl halftime show on CBS. At the song's end, Timberlake reached across Jackson's chest, popped off her black bustier and exposed most of her right breast to approximately 100 million television viewers.

The encouraging thing to me is that it's getting protests.

Huvane also explained why Jackson's nipple appeared perfectly covered.

"It's not a pastie," he said. "It's a nipple ring she's had for many years."

Oh well, it was an accident and instead of seeing a red bra, her old nipple ring was exposed to 100 million people. That makes everything better.

Timberlake is just like George Michael was in the 80s. He would appear in videos with women and pretend to like women, even though anyone who saw the Wham "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go" video knew that he played for the other team.

PC SUCKS. Unfortunate incident? There were approximately 1 Billion people watching this planned boob shot on the planet. Now, how was this viewed by the rest of the world? Welcome to Sodom.

This goes way beyond an unfortunate incident. The world has changed since 9/11 and many habits are broken by subsequent events. I do not pretend that an event is unfortunate.

There is nature and there is a God. I will do my part to make sure that this type of noise does not enter my home.

Maybe they should team up with Josh Groban (sang "You Raise Me Up" during the pre-game show). He has class AND real talent!

I agree about the Timberlake assessment.

Ladies, if you're into "I-cut-my-own-hair-with-a-clipper-but-I-do-a-lousy-job-of-it" dorky doofuses who look like they would spend all day all by themselves watching a Dr. Who marathon on the couch in the dorm lobby... he's your man.

I'll bet she polished it to high gloss for its big audience debut.

My fifteen year old daughter agrees with you and she thinks this as a tit-for-tat (no pun intended) for Britney kissing M.

My daughter thinks they are so full of themselves, they are using a world stage to play their dirty soap opera.

"I don't get the whole Justin Timberlake thing. He's an ugly little runt IMO. "

Aint that the truth. Not only does he lack natural rythm or soul, two traits normally required in his field, he does not even have that 'strikingly good looks' thing going, as do some singers with less than stellar talent.

I think he is simply living off the reputation of n'sync, and also the fact that he has an unusual name, which, believe it or not, counts a lot in the marketing world of pop.

My niece was watching some teeny show on MTV or Trio or some such and they were talking about Justin and Brittany. Apparently they go out of their way to appeal to gay men. Thus the videos of him wearing no shirt in the rain with his pants half down. This apprently appeals to gay men.
I think he is pathetic in his attempt to be a man!

Well, looks like everyone is tossing around this hot potato. I've not heard anyone take responsibility, without putting their own pathetic spin on it.

I don't feel sorry for Timberlake. He could lose every endorsement, and never work another day in his life, and still be quite comfortable, I'm sure.
He could have salvaged his image somewhat by taking ownership of his part in the incident, instead of bragging about it...and then back peddling when he figured out it might cost him some $$$$s in lost revenue.

I lost all respect for Janet J when she spoke out in support of her brother. I'm very loyal to my family, but not to the point of enabling a pedophile.

This was some lamebrain's scheme to one-up the Madonna/Spears fiasco...thinking that the John/Joan Q Publics of our country are too desensitized to notice or care.

Guess they got fooled.

Lots of liberal spin doctors in Chicago are claiming (in a stealth way) that the breast shown was a prop. A fake.

Nice try,,,, I guess.

Thier show is like a car wreck...you don't really wanna watch, but it just pulls you in. I'm hooked on it. They are so disfunctional I don't think they'd know what to do without each other. They do make beautiful bikes. I think Paul Sr. is putting on somewhat of a show, cause you see his teddy bear side every once in a while.

I love these guys. The father is classic. He is strong and has a heart these pop culture clowns couldn't pay for, even with all their money. He works out, curses, blows up etc. These are guys guys. The sons are regular cool guys we can all relate to. Plus, I live in Westchester, so they get a play as they are only 45 minutes from here. Did you see the finsihed POW bike? The episode he gave Cody the bike they worked on was a true testament to why this show is so popular.

It won't be long until Tim Robbins comes to Justin's defense and claims McDonald's should not punish him financially as this was a matter of free speech.
