15 Jul Justin Timberlake In Hot Water Over New Song Title….
Justin Timberlake’s new song “Take Back The Night” is in hot water with a Sexual Assault Awareness program of the same name.
Katherine Koestner, Executive Director had this to say:
“Everyone at Take Back the Night is really shocked, because normally, we get asked when people want to use the name. Normally entities as large as Justin Timberlake do very kind and thoughtful things to support our cause.”
‘Use me,’ for example, is not a great phrase for anyone affiliated with the organization.”
“Usually people are pretty mindful because no one is actually ‘for’ sexual assault. This whole thing with Justin is just really unfortunate and we’re hoping it can be amicably resolved.”
They are also upset that the title is showing up first on sites such as Wikipedia instead of the organization.-DocFB
Diagnosis: In less than a month, the organization will be showing up first again. Although the song is more uptempo than anything on his previous record, it is not going to be a major enough hit that it will be remembered by the end of August….
