Justin Timberlake makes his mistakes his own.

In the last few weeks the singer and former member of ‘N Sync was criticized by fans for how he dealt with his relationship with his ex-girlfriend Britney Spears. In fact, Justin starred in the Framing Britney Spears Special, which examines how one of the world’s greatest pop stars got under Conservatory.

In addition, fans looked back on Justin’s controversial halftime show at the Super Bowl game last weekend Janet Jackson.

But on Friday February 12th, Justin took to Instagram and acknowledged some of his flaws in the industry.

“I’ve seen the messages, tags, comments and concerns and want to reply,” he began. “I am very sorry for the time in my life when my actions added to the problem, when I did not speak properly or did not speak up for what was right. I understand that in those moments I understand and in many other moments came up short and benefited from a system that tolerates misogyny and racism. “
