Britney Spears took to social media recently to show support to the Black Lives Matter movement but some of her fans were not impressed.
The US singer was praised by a handful of her fans and her peers in the entertainment space for her post about racial injustice in the US.
The songstress had posted a snap of a black man holding a placard that read:
"White people have generational wealth. Black people have generational trauma #WeAreNotTheSame! #BLM."
The popular Toxic hitmaker captioned her post:
"Just sayin'!!!! #BlackLivesMatter #BLM."
Most of her 29.4 million Instagram followers dragged the star and pointed out that may white people also don't have generational wealth. One of her followers reportedly begged her to "please don't go down this rabbit hole".
Tweeps have shared mixed thoughts on Britney's #BLM post. Check out some of their comments below:
"The fans who are pissed should get a hobby."
"Speaking generally, from an overall perspective, she’s not wrong, so... be mad if it makes you feel better or whatever."
"The ones that are pissed are those who don't want change."
"How can anyone support a group like BLM which says it’s okay to loot and steal from businesses? It’s just awful and anyone who supports BLM needs to wake up."
"Good, let the racist militants get pissed and stay pissed."
