Britney Spears took to Instagram Saturday and shared a lengthy post where she criticized producers who have chosen to make projects about her life.
Both her career and conservatorship were specifically the subjects of two documentaries that were made available for streaming in 2021 – Hulu’s "Framing Britney Spears" and Netflix’s "Britney Vs. Spears." She did not participate in either film.
"Come on seriously is it honestly legal to do that many documentaries about someone without their blessing at all ??!" Spears wrote in her since-deleted post. "Seriously though, think about it … I’ve never seen that many documentaries done on a person … Will Smith, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez. Not one person on the face of this earth would people — a network, TV production or anyone for that matter — dig up that much negative footage and do hour specials claiming it’s ‘HELPING ME.’ REALLY ??? It was the most insulting thing I ever saw in my life and every person I have spoken to has said it’s why the conservatorship ended … REALLY ???"
"I just want to know how are all these people saying it helped me when I feel by with just my mouth and my WORD and what I said in my testimony to the judge," Spears continued. "THAT said it all… that would be ENOUGH. But not in America !! Every person jumps on board with these heartbreaking documentaries and forget the 13 years in my conservatorship.. .. making up for some of my past they literally have no remorse at all. They have always treated me like that, literally that’s exactly what my family did to me… It’s so insulting it’s not even funny. And no a**hole, my legs look nothing like that !! America … this nation has been one thing and one thing only to me — a bully."
