Justin, just remember kids are watching at halftime

Super Bowl LII football (2018)Just days before Super Bowl LII, a media watchdog group has written an open letter to Justin Timberlake – who more than a decade ago was at the center of a controversy during the game's halftime entertainment.

The Parents Television Council sent the letter to the entertainer because he will be performing in Sunday's Super Bowl halftime show.  PTC's Melissa Henson explains that the letter encourages Timberlake to keep his promise not to repeat what happened with the infamous "wardrobe malfunction" incident that indecently exposed Janet Jackson in the 2004 show (Super Bowl XXXVIII).

"He has expressed regret about what happened during that other Super Bowl," she tells OneNewsNow, "and he's a father now with young children, so hopefully he's got a better sense of why that was inappropriate and hopefully there won't be any repeats this time."

That incident, according to Henson, is a perfect example of why parents need to keep a close eye on what the children are watching.

Henson, Melissa (PTC)"If you were going by the [TV] ratings of the Super Bowl to decide whether or not to let your family watch, there's nothing in that rating that would have warned you about what was going to happen during that halftime show," she points out.

"... That is especially true with live events," Henson continues. "You just don't know what's going to happen – and the ratings aren't necessarily going to give you all the information that you need. So you just have to exercise an abundance of caution when you're watching live TV events."

And as usual, Henson warns parents to be on the lookout for sleazy commercials during the Super Bowl.
