AceShowbiz - Britney Spears has earned criticism instead of sympathy amid her feud with her ex Kevin Federline. The singer has been slammed as "racist" for dragging black hip-hop moguls in an insult to her former husband.
In a lengthy Instagram post, the mother of two clapped back at Kevin after he leaked videos of her arguments with their sons. When trying to point out that the former backup dancer is an unfit father, she claimed that he is raising their kids in a house full of marijuana, comparing him to the likes of Jay-Z, 50 Cent and Sean "P. Diddy" Combs.
"So as much of you watch, what he refers to his family as the PERFECT BRADY BRUNCH family …," she wrote in the since-deleted post. "I can guarantee you, that house has more weed than Ludacris, 50 cent, Jay Z and Puff Daddy combined !!!!"
"After reading about Britney Spears dragging 50 Cent, Jay Z and Ludacris' name in her beef with her baby daddy I have no sympathy for her. She's just like her racist a** family. Unhinged a**," one person blasted the "Toxic" singer. Another similarly reacted, "Britney Spears using Ludacris, 50 Cent, Jay Z and Puff Daddy to show that K-Fed is an unfit father is racist and problematic af..."
A third sarcastically explained, "So about this whole Britney Spears Is A Racist thing... Ludacris wrote a hit about his favorite strain. 50 Cent owns several weed companies. Jay Z has his own strain of weed. Puff Daddy owns several weed companies. Seems like associating them with a lot of weed is what THEY want."
"Good for you @britneyspears Spears for speaking up, but keep black people's names out of your mouth. Don't bring us in that white people mess," a fourth person warned Britney. Another wondered, "How come every time Britney Spears makes a rant she has to equate her problems with a Black or POC person? It's very strange."
Someone thinks Britney is not a racist, but her claim is still problematic. "I don't think Britney Spears is racist but her weed comment definitely gets a side eye," the person tweeted. "The people she named aren't even notoriously public weed smokers so I’m detecting assumptions and implicit bias. Do better, girl!"
Another, meanwhile, defended the star as claiming, "Britney Spears is NOT racist.... She named people that she personally KNOWS is involved with weed. Wtf is the problem."
Britney and Kevin's feud started after the latter revealed in an interview that their two teenage sons refused to meet her because of her revealing social media posts. Denying that it was the root of the problem, the "Womanizer" songstress called out her "hateful" and "rude" kids for refusing to see her even when they visited her house.
Kevin then shared the clips showing Britney cursing at her sons during arguments in her home and inside a car. Britney's lawyer later clapped back at Kevin, accusing him of violating "the privacy and dignity of the mother of his children."
Kevin has since removed the videos from his Instagram page. His lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan, meanwhile, claimed that Kevin never trash-talked Britney in front of their kids and that the boys made the decision to stay away from their mother on their own. The lawyer told TMZ that Britney has not seen her sons in 5 months.
