Talk about bad timing and bad judgement. Justin Timberlake has found himself in some hot water after allegedly tweeting a happy birthday wish to Madonna that read:
"A happiest of Bdays to my mother chucking ninja, @Madonna!! Hope you have a great one, M!"
The choice of words did not sit well with many of his followers who view the phrase as an alternative to saying "mother f---ing n---a." Many users decided to voice their opinions by responding with tweets like:
I knew Justin Timberlake was getting too close for comfort with black culture but now he is saying ninja. #nosir — brandi marie (@b_mariegreen) August 17, 2014
Justin Timberlake chose *this* week to call Madonna "my ninja"? I just can't. — Olivia A. Cole (@RantingOwl) August 16, 2014
Timberlake is not the first star to use 'ninja' as a substitute. In 2012, Katy Perry covered Jay-Z and Kanye West's "N----s in Paris" for a Radio 1 performance and swapped the real word for the alternative.
