Recently, Britney Spears has come out in support of Black Lives Matter which has left some fans terribly unhappy...
Typically her Instagram account is known for its light content.
Up until now.
Keep scrolling to have a look for yourselves...
Now, this isn't the only scandal Britney Spears has been part of...
Because over the last few months, fans have been concerned over the singer's wellbeing and things got worse ever since the documentary, Framing Britney Spears.
Since first emerging into the spotlight in 1998, Britney Spears quickly became one of the most famous popstars of her decade.
With hits such as "Oops, I did it again," "Slave 4 U," and "Britney," the Mississippi-born singer consistently topped the charts and was even hailed as the "Princess of Pop."
But, early on, Britney's life started to take a turn for the worst.
The star's mental health began to dramatically deteriorate, and the endless attention and pressure from the public and the press alike started to take its toll.
And in 2007, Britney finally snapped.
Her breakdown was triggered by a number of different factors...
She had spent years battling mental health problems and after her split from husband Kevin Federline, the father of her 2 sons, she headed to rehab in Antigua.
Her stay didn't last, however, as she checked out just twenty-four hours later.
Britney's breakdown was publicized all over the world...
And the shocking images of Britney, then aged twenty-five, emerging from the salon with a freshly-shaven head and attacking a paparazzi's car with an umbrella became one of the most famous snaps of that decade.
A few months following this, she was hospitalized and in 2008, she was seen being carried out of her house after reportedly overdosing on prescription amphetamines and locking herself in the bathroom with her youngest son, Jayden.
It was a very long road to recovery for the pop star...
She has gone on to win a number of awards...
However, one sinister consequence of her breakdown still remains to this day.

Jamie Spears controls every aspect of his daughter's life.
A Los Angeles court named Jamie as the permanent conservator of his daughter's affairs in 2008 and he was named as the permanent co-conservator of her estate, along with an attorney, Andrew Wallet.
Fans believe that, to this day, Britney's dad dictates her every move...

Things have been strange, to say the least...
So the hashtag and movement #FreeBritney was catapulted back into the spotlight.
Over the last couple of months, people have been using the hashtag to show their support and solidarity with Britney...
And some have even been taking to the streets of Hollywood to march in protest of her situation.
But Britney recently decided that enough was enough...
And she sought to regain control of her own life.
It was reported late in 2020 that she no longer wanted her dad to be in control of her conservatorship.TMZ reported.
But sadly, things didn't go Britney's way.
The court rejected Britney's lawsuit against her father which means that he is still in control.
And quite predictably...

It caused a storm online.
Concerns about Britney have continued.
With no sign of things getting better for the star.
The documentary, Framing Britney Spears, which was recently released on Hulu, ramped things up a notch.
Finally watched the “Framing of Britney Spears” on Hulu. It’s an understatement to call it heartbreaking. #FreeBritney— Tamron Hall (@Tamron Hall)1612788746.0
It documents Britney's ascent to fame, focusing on the misogyny and paparazzi intrusion that defined much of her career, before delving into the #FreeBritney movement.
But now people have focussed on something else altogether...
And it involves an Instagram photo which has gotten her into a bit of hot water with some fans... By some fans, I mean the terribly ignorant ones.
While a lot of the content on her Instagram is usually light and strays away from political stances, recently that all changed when she dedicated a post to support the Black Lives Matter movement.
And while some people loved seeing their idol speak up...
Others felt outraged by her comments.
The singer posted an image Monday of a Black man wearing a mask and holding a sign that says: "White people have generational wealth. Black people have generational trauma #WeAreNotTheSame! #BLM."
And Britney, in the caption added: "Just sayin'," along with the BLM hashtag.
