Britney Spears Fans Replace Justin Timberlake's 'It's Gonna Be May' Meme

With May arriving yesterday, it can mean only one thing - it's time for that meme of Justin Timberlake saying: "It's gonna be May."

However, Britney Spears' fans reckon the singer is the perfect person to replace the former *Nsync member and they've got the memes to prove it.

Normally, 1 May sees a huge influx of memes featuring Timberlake singing the 2000 hit 'It's Gonna Be Me' - in which he pronounces the last word in a manner that sounds more like 'may'.

And while it seemed like one viral joke that absolutely refused to die, fans of Britney think it could be time for him to move aside.

Posting on social media, fans shared memes featuring Britney, while others simply refused to share Timberlake's likeness again.

The memes come after Timberlake faced a serious backlash over his behaviour, following revelations in this year's documentary Framing Britney Spears concerning his break-up with Britney.

Viewers accused Timberlake of making Britney out to be the villain after their 2002 break-up.

One angry Britney fan said: "Justin Timberlake took full advantage of the sh**** misogyny and double standards of the early 00s for his own gain.

"Without Brit, there's no him. He was absolutely nothing special. Still aint s***. #FreeBritney"

Another wrote: "Wow, I'm really here for the Britney Spears documentary calling Justin Timberlake on his absolute bulls***."

He was also condemned for the way he handled the furore caused after his infamous Super Bowl 2004 performance alongside Janet Jackson.

Timberlake apologised following the criticism, saying in a statement: "I've seen the messages, tags, comments, and concerns and I want to respond. I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right.

"I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism.

"I specifically want to apologise to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed.

"I also feel compelled to respond, in part, because everyone involved deserves better and most importantly, because this is a larger conversation that I wholeheartedly want to be part of and grow from."
