Justin Timberlake Addresses “Take Back The Night” Controversy: See His Statement

269938bf3f54c1433527c7cc910743bb Justin Timberlake Addresses “Take Back The Night” Controversy: See His Statement

Justin Timberlake‘s new single “Take Back The Night” is a completely enjoyable piece of low-key disco-pop. Unfortunately, he decided to give it the exact name of an organization dedicated to combating sexual assault and empowering victims — a move which, at the very least, pushed the organization’s name down a few levels on Google searches for a while. Yesterday (July 15), we learned that Take Back The Night was taking legal action against Timberlake, and today the pop star has addressed the controversy. He released a statement to Radar calling the naming a coincidence and saying that he hopes this will bring more attention to the organization and its goals.

Head below to see JT’s full statement.

Upon the release of my new single ‘Take Back The Night,’ I was made aware of an organization of the same name called The Take Back The Night Foundation.

I wanted to take this opportunity to let all know that neither my song nor its lyrics have any association with the organization. As I’ve learned more about The Take Back The Night Foundation, I’m moved by its efforts to stop violence against women, create safe communities and encourage respectful relationships for women — something we all should rally around.

It is my hope that this coincidence will bring more awareness to this cause.”
