In particular, how Britney Spears has been heavily criticized for her partially censored naked posts in the past.
Fans aren’t happy with the apparent hypocrisy of the situation.
Many have highlighted the stark comparison online.
Scroll down for the full story!
Now, Tommy Lee is known for being the founding member of the heavy metal band Mötley Crüe…
As well as famously divorcing Pamela Anderson way back in 1998, after only being married for 3 years.
Since then the pair have moved on respectfully.
And recently everyone’s been talking about his new wife…
While also speculating who the mystery woman is…
According to reports, Tommy’s leading lady has been at the center of a number of controversies over the years.
In 2019, she was accused of racism, after sharing a photo of her and Tommy, alongside the caption: “With my Asian boyfriend Yoshi, don’t tell Tommy.”
And that’s not all…
A tweet of hers also went viral after she made fun of Asian people and that didn’t go down too well with the public…
She was also slammed in 2014 for a joke she made while hosting the Daytime Emmy Awards.
According to PEOPLE, Tommy first met his current wife through the dating app Raya back in 2017.
And they totally hit it off, LADbible reports.
Talking about his wife in the Netflix documentary The American Meme, Tommy confessed he had been following her for years…
And there’s more to the tale than just that!
“I’ve been following her for years on Vine. I was like, ‘She is so funny and stupid and cute and beautiful,” he said.
Meanwhile, its come to our attention that it’s not only the drummer who is head over heels in love, as his wife revealed some juicy inside details about how she was eager to date Tommy after she had been cheated on in past relationships.
“He was like, ‘Oh, well, I’ll just give you the password to my phone and all my devices, and anytime you’re feeling insecure, you can go look at anything you want,” Tommy’s wife confessed on the How to Talk to Girls podcast.
So, who is Tommy Lee married to?
It’s none other than Brittany Furlan…
Brittany was once the most followed female video star on Vine until the social media platform shut down in 2016.
This truly shocked fans who took to social media, after they only just found out he’s off the single market…
Trust us, we didn’t know either!
“I been living under a rock bc I found out that Tommy Lee is married to Brittany Furlan and I absolutely hate it,” wrote on Twitter user.
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.
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.
As we know, Britney has posted dozens of partially nude snaps on the social media platform.
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.
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.
And eventually, in 2007, Britney suffered a highly public breakdown.
One of the results of Britney’s breakdown was that she was put under conservatorship.
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.
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.
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…
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.
Since then, Britney has been rebuilding her life and experiencing many things again.
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.
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.
And some have made their feelings known online.
“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.
“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.
“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.”
“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?
