Why Do Fans Think Justin Timberlake and Megan Thee Stallion Are Feuding?
The feud rumors began when a video went viral of Megan and Justin seemingly having a tense interaction backstage. In the video shared by BuzzingPop, Megan was seen getting her hair fixed as Justin and the rest of ‘NSYNC walked by.
After Justin turned to say something to Megan, the “Savage” singer started talking with large hand movements. She appeared to be yelling at him as she pointed her finger at the “SexyBack” singer. Meanwhile, Justin seemed to want out of the conversation and kept moving.
Shortly after the clip went viral, fans rushed to social media to wonder what the interaction was about. “Did Justin Timberlake say something to piss off Megan Thee Stallion? We still haven’t forgiven you for what you did to Janet Jackson … Do we have a problem?” one person wrote. Another added, “Megan Thee Stallion seem not very happy with what Justin Timberlake said to her.”
