Britney Spears is not going to hold back when it comes to speaking about injustice. She also isn’t going to hide the fact that she supports the Black Lives Matter movement, no matter if it causes a stir.
Britney Spears recently divided some fans with a very topical Instagram post.
Jury deliberations started in the case of the ex-cop who killed George Floyd. Many are fearing the outcome of that case will cause even more social unrest. Spears addressed this before her nearly 30 million Instagram followers on Monday.
Spears posted a photo of a Black man holding a sign with a BLM hashtag reading: “White people have generational wealth. Black people have generational trauma. #WeAreNotTheSame.”
“Just sayin’!!!!” Spears wrote as a caption, along with the hashtags #BlackLivesMatter and #BLM.
Some fans were very happy to see “Woke Britney” on their timelines. They sent out comments praising her for joining the movement. Other comments were a bit more toxic, to pick a word to describe it.
One fan wrote: “So now we are labeling people based on skin color which is literally what we are supposedly trying not to do?” Another critical post said: “I mean – this is literally not true. This is called profiling which is also racist.”
Britney also received a comment asking her to “Please don’t go down this rabbit hole.”
Another fan suggested that Britney Spears do more than just post a photo and a caption on her Instagram. She could use her star power to influence a lot more than just through her Instagram feed.
Spears has left the post up which you can check out below.
