Justin Timberlake Didn’t Know About Take Back the Night

"Upon the release of my new single 'Take Back the Night,' I was made aware of an organization of the same name called The Take Back the Night Foundation. I wanted to take this opportunity to let all know that neither my song nor its lyrics have any association with the organization. As I've learned more about The Take Back the Night Foundation, I'm moved by its efforts to stop violence against women … It is my hope that this coincidence will bring more awareness to this cause." —Justin Timberlake responds to the Take Back the Night Foundation (and everyone else who raised an eyebrow at his song).
