Britney Spears documentary prompts outpouring support from fans and celebrities

Fans and celebrities are posting messages of support for Britney Spears after Framing Britney Spears, a new Hulu/New York Times documentary about her life, career, and conservatorship was released. Justin Timberlake is one of the main people getting a lot of backlash. One part of the documentary focuses on Britney Spears’ romance with Justin Timberlake back in the 2000's, along with the aftermath. There were allegations in the film that Britney Spears cheated on him and Justin Timberlake fueled the narrative with the video for his 2002 song “Cry Me A River,” which featured a Britney Spears look-alike. Diane Sawyer is also getting backlash, fanning the flames when she interviewed Britney Spears in 2003 when she was 22-years-old. Diane Sawyer pushed her to tears when she said to Britney Spears, “You broke his heart, you did something that caused him so much pain, so much suffering. What did you do?” Now, angry fans want apologies from both Justin Timberlake and Diane Sawyer, arguing that they contributed to Britney Spears' ongoing emotional issues.
