Britney Spears has responded to haters of a topless photo that had more than 2 million likes. In the photo, her back tattoos appeared to have been removed.
The pop star, who has been embroiled in a legal fight against her court-ordered conservatorship in recent years, posted a photograph to Instagram on Wednesday (Jul. 09, 2021) in which she stood nude with her back to the camera.
Fans were quick to notice, however, that Spears’s back tattoos were absent from the photo. Amid prolonged ambiguity over the star’s Instagram account, which has been largely devoid of mention of Spears’s legal turmoil, fans expressed cynicism that Spears herself had posted the picture.
Others, meanwhile, theorized that the woman in the picture may not have been Spears at all, because apparently nothing Britney does can be done without some sort of conspiracy theory being launched.
Today (9 July), Spears responded to the criticism with a meme depicting Khloe Kardashian flashing her middle finger alongside the message: “While you’re talking behind my back, feel free to bend down and kiss my ass.”
“Ok so … I edited out my tattoo on my neck cause I wanted to see what it would look like clean,” Spears captioned the image, alongside three “shrug” emojis.
“And yeah I like it better so while you guys are talking behind my back go ahead and kiss my ass haters!!!!!!”
Leave Britney alone.
