While another didn’t even realize they were married…

“Why did I only just find out right now that Tommy Lee and Brittany Furlan from vine are married lmao,” they wrote.

“The fact that that annoying lady from Vine is married to Tommy Lee as in Tommy and Pamela makes me have hope,” a third tweeted.

“I’m so late why am I just finding out that Tommy Lee the man from MÖTLEY CRÜE is MARRIED to that b***h from vine?????” another wrote.

But his new wife isn’t the only reason people are talking about Tommy online.

As he recently posted a full frontal nude on his Instagram account.

Leaving some understandably shocked.

However, while you might have thought he’d receive tonnes of backlash over the snap, the response was actually the opposite.

  via Getty Images  

People were praising the star in the comments section.

And it wasn’t long before Britney Spears fans caught a whiff of the situation, leaving many outraged over the double standards.

  via Getty Images  

As we know, Britney has posted dozens of partially nude snaps on the social media platform.

advertisement

And has spoken out about the move, claiming she does it as a way to reclaim her body after feeling utterly powerless during her conservatorship.

  via Getty Images  

She was thrust into the spotlight at a young age and gained an unprecedented amount of fame.

But, over the years, Britney’s mental health dramatically deteriorated as the pressures of the spotlight took a toll.

  via Getty Images  

And eventually, in 2007, Britney suffered a highly public breakdown.

advertisement

One of the results of Britney’s breakdown was that she was put under conservatorship.

  via Getty Images  

Britney’s dad, Jamie Spears, was made the permanent conservator of his daughter’s affairs and co-conservator of her estate in 2008 meaning he could control every aspect of her life.

advertisement

But, in recent years, following Britney’s cryptic posts on social media, the #FreeBritney movement to free her for the conservatorship was plunged into the spotlight.

  via Getty Images  

And eventually, as people protested for Britney to be able to control her life, so did the star.

Britney began a fight to regain control of her own life back in 2020.

It took a long time, with a lot of knockbacks as things initially did not go her way…

  via Getty Images  

But, after thirteen years, on November 13, 2021, Britney was freed from her conservatorship as it was terminated with immediate effect.

It was a day that people, including the singer, rejoiced.

advertisement

Since then, Britney has been rebuilding her life and experiencing many things again.

  via Getty Images  

And one of the most important things was that she was finally free to make her own choices and be in control of her own body for the first time in over a decade.

advertisement

So the news that Tommy Lee was being praised for his NSFW nude, while Britney’s partially naked snaps were being criticized just didn’t sit well with fans.

  via Getty Images  

And some have made their feelings known online.

advertisement

“Why is it that Tommy Lee can show his p***s and people have no problem, but Britney Spears can’t show her body (privates covered btw) without hate? Make it make sense!” one person asked.

  via Getty Images  

“2022 and we have to witness Tommy Lee being praised for posting a frontal nude while Britney Spears is constantly mom-shamed for posting s*xy pics,” another wrote.

advertisement

“Sooooo Tommy Lee posts a picture of his c*** and its class, Britney Spears posts nudes and she’s vile?” a third wrote, adding: “Those double standards are still alive and well and truly kicking.”

  via Getty Images  

“So Tommy Lee can post a literal photo with his whole d*** out on Instagram and y’all love it, but when Britney makes posts nude (BUT STILL COVERING HERSELF) she’s crazy? Make it make sense. The double standard is so apparent,” echoed another.

What do you think of it all?
