The documentary also revealed a short clip the hitman filmed, asking fans to “move on” from the incident.
Janet said: “Honestly, this whole thing has been blown disproportionately. Of course it was an accident that shouldn’t have happened.

Justin, 40, ultimately failed to issue a statement after the 2004 Super Bowl as Janet ended up dealing with all the burden of the backlash.
He said: “…I understand that I have fallen short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that tolerates deviance and racism.
