Twitter News: Justin Timberlake Faces TWTR Backlash for Madonna Tweet

The Tweet was for Madonna's birthday


Justin Timberlake is catching flak for a Twitter (TWTR) message he sent to Madonna for her birthday.

twitter-twtr-justin-timberlake-madonnaJustin Timberlake sent Madonna a message on her birthday that read “A happiest of Bdays to my mother chucking ninja, @Madonna!! Hope you have a great one, M!” The celebrity was immediately attacked by fans for using “mother chucking ninja”, which can be used in place of “mother fucking n***a”, reports US Magazine.

After several angry posts from fans on Twitter, Justin Timberlake deleted his birthday Tweet to Madonna. Other celebrities, such as Katy Perry, have also used the term ninja in place of the n-word, reports Us Magazine.

Some saw Justin Timberlake’s use of the n-word as poorly timed due to the conflict in Ferguson, Missouri. The singer hasn’t apologized for his message, but he did Tweet about the events in Ferguson following the deletion of his birthday message to Madonna, reports OK! Magazine.
