Octavia Spencer apologized to Britney Spears & Sam Asghari for prenup joke!
Octavia Spencer has apologized to Britney Spears for joking she should make her new fiancé sign a pre-nuptial agreement. Yes, the internet apparently cannot understand what a joke is.
When the pop star announced her engagement to longtime boyfriend Sam Asghari on Instagram on Monday (Sep. 13, 2021), Spencer left a funny comment advising Britney to protect her assets from her third husband-to-be.
“Make him sign a prenup,” she commented on the post.
Asghari seemed to laugh off the comment in an Instagram Story later that day which read, “Thank you for your concern about the prenup!” and joked that he was the one who needed legal protection.
“Of course we’re getting iron clad prenup to protect my Jeep and shoe collection in case she dumps me one day,” he quipped alongside laughing emojis.
Fans speculated online whether comments like Spencer’s about a prenup, drove Spears to seek more privacy. Please. Everyone was wondering the same. The topic would have had to been addressed at some point. And do people know what the word “bullied” actually means?
On Wednesday (Sep. 15, 2021), Octavia posted an apology for the comment on Instagram, saying she had already reached out privately to the couple.
“Y’all, a few days ago Sam and Britney announced their engagement and me being me I made a joke. My intention was to make them laugh not cause pain.”
“I’ve reached out to this lovely couple privately to apologize and now want to restore just a smidge of happiness they were robbed of. Britney’s fans have seen her through a lot of pain and she’s found happiness. We’re thrilled for her. So let’s show them love. #nonegativity.”
Sam understood that it was a joke.
Why can’t you, dear internet?
