Many fans were sad and disappointed that performer Janet Jackson was not present at the Superbowl on Sunday (Feb. 4). However, they showed their love by creating a social-media campaign #JanetJacksonAppreciationDay making her a top-five trending topic on Twitter. The campaign was also a way to protest Justin Timberlake’s halftime performance after he ripped off Miss Jackson’s costume that displayed her nipple publicly in 2004. Although the tweets were to celebrate the singer’s influence on music, not everyone was here for “Janet Jackson Day”.

Especially comedian Michael Rapaport who took shots at Jackson on Twitter.

He then tweeted a picture of Janet with her now former husband Wissam Al Mana with the caption, “Queen of the 90s”, and wrote, “There’s no little girl under 18 who’s heard from Janet in 10 yrs”.

He also came for television personality Elgin Harris when the Hollywood hairdresser told Rapaport to put some respect on Jackson’s name.

Jackson fans weren’t too happy and quickly came to her defense, shredding Rapaport to pieces.
