Hey, all you losers ripping on celebrities for fun (she said to a mirror). Leave Britney alone, so says Britney Spears! Last night she took to Instagram (which she has full control over, we’re told) to kindly ask “fans” to stop posting mean comments. Especially about all the criticism regarding her recent Red Room selfies (Haven’t ya heard? They’re her new fashion runway vids).
Here’s Britney’s plea, which confirms to us all that she’s not going to make another appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live’s mean tweets segment anytime soon.

I’ve read a lot of things online of people criticizing my posts …. saying I post the same 15 pictures with the same red background and wearing the same white bathing suit. For me I get really excited about my posts …. and I like to share them with you all !!!! I’ve never owned a white bathing suit before and I simply liked the red background !!!! Reading all of the mean comments really hurts my feelings …. and I wanted to share because you really shouldn’t be saying all of these mean things to someone you don’t even know .… this goes for bullying anyone really !!!!!! Hard times like we are currently living through should really teach us to be nice to one another …. !!!!!! PS I saw some people were offended by me posting about horses yesterday …. I am truly sorry if I offended anyone. I think it’s important to see things that bring happiness during hard times and making light of a situation can sometimes help people !!!! I love you all …. stay safe …. and be nice !!!!!
Let’s break this down. Yes, Brit posts a lot of selfies against the red wall. And yes, she’s usually wearing white (but let’s get it straight, those ARE NOT white bathing suits, they’re CLEARLY bodysuits). And I’ll give it to her; the white on red is a nice artistic contrast, AND, if history has taught us anything, Britney’s always loved a white ensemble.
But we know what people are making of. Britney’s a fragile woman, who’s had a very rough year, and there’s a troubling amount of the same shit on her Instagram. And sure, lots of comments are likely coming from trolls, but many others are fans lightly knocking on her bedroom door with a weary, “You okaaay, girl?”
As for people being “offended” by her “posting about horses yesterday,” she has since deleted all the evidence, but The Sun has the scoop:
Yesterday, an excited Britney posted a video from a horseback riding trip she said she took two months ago.
“It makes me want to go riding again so bad !!!! Giddy up my friends…” she wrote with the clip of her as she trekked through the mountains.
One follower commented on the post: “Um… could you like not right now sis?!?! People are dying and we don’t care about your horses!!!!”
“Now is NOT the time to boast about your first world adventures! Use your platform for better!!” Another angry Instagram user wrote.
Calm your shit, angry Instagram users. If anything, Britney is helping the pandemic by teaching us to stay locked inside our mansions with our beefy 26-year-old fucksticks. If Our Lady of Cheetos wants to reminisce about happier and horsier times, let her!
