Though fans are going wild over Justin Timberlake”s new single, “Take Back the Night,” he”s already in some hot water over the title.
A sexual assault awareness organization by the same name sent a letter to the “Sexyback” singer regarding the use of the name.
Executive Director Katherine Koestner told Radar, “Everyone at Take Back the Night is really shocked, because normally, we get asked when people want to use the name.Normally entities as large as Justin Timberlake do very kind and thoughtful things to support our cause.
The problems with the association include the sexual lyrics and Koestner explains that “”Use me,” for example, is not a great phrase for anyone affiliated with the organization.” In addition, the first entry for Take Back the Night on Wikipedia is now JT”s song, rather than the charity.
Hopeful, she concluded, “Usually people are pretty mindful because no one is actually for sexual assault. This whole thing with Justin is just really unfortunate and were hoping it can be amicably resolved.
