Uh-oh! It looks like Justin Timberlake has come under fire for using a perceived racial slur while wishing Madonna a happy birthday.
The singer posted a message to the 56-year-old over the weekend reading, “A happiest of Bdays to my mother chucking ninja, @Madonna!! Hope you have a great one, M!”
After spotting the post, fans took to the social media site to blast Timberlake for using the phrase, which reportedly substitutes, “motherf**king n**ga.”
One fan wrote, “I knew Justin Timberlake was getting too close for comfort with black culture but now he is saying ninja. #nosir.”
Another added, “Get Justin Timberlake the f**k out of here.”
Timberlake has since deleted the message and Madonna has made no comments.
What are your thoughts on the message? Did Justin make the right call deleting it?
