Britney Spears is known for sharing unfiltered posts on her social media, but this week the singer took things too far when she fat shamed Christina Aguilera and her dancers.
"I wish I could have chosen the nannies for my children … my dancers … I mean if I had Christina Aguilera’s dancers I would have looked extremely small," she wrote on Instagram, "I mean why not talk about it ?? Don’t you think my confidence would have been a bit better if I could choose where I lived, ate, whom I called on the phone, dated and who was on stage with me!!!"
Many people in the body positive space and plus size community took to the comment section to express their disappointment in the fat-shaming.
Model and fat activist Tess Holliday commented on the post, "oh no girl this ain't it."
Since the backlash Britney Spears has spoken out about the controversial post.
"To be honest, I’m not trying to be critical of anybody," Britney wrote on Instagram, "what I posted is a projection of the insecurities I deal with all the time as a result of how my parents and the media have treated me … I would never intentionally body shame anybody because I know what it feels like … I struggle with this because of how I feel about myself, not because I hate how anybody looks … I feel like my family knew I was insecure and people were trying to purposefully feed into this insecurity by not letting me have a choice in the people who were on stage with me."
