Britney Spears opens up about her reaction to the slap video: It was a scream on every level
Britney Spears is working through an incident in which a security guard for San Antonio Spurs player Victor Wembanyama backhanded her for getting too close and tapping the NBA star on the shoulder.
In a new Instagram post you can SEE HERE, she shared her feelings on seeing the video that captured the incident in its entirety — including her screaming “That’s America for you! F*** you all!” in the aftermath.
“I’ve been working in the industry for years and have been with some of the most famous people in the world … NSYNC at one point were like
The Beatles … girls would throw themselves at them everywhere we went … not one time in my life has a security guard ever hit another person !!!” she captioned a serene photo of a Victorian woman in black and white on Friday, July 7.
“I’m not sharing this to be a victim … I SIMPLY GET IT HONESTLY … my reaction was priceless … BAD ??? YES … I’ve had documentaries done about me and none of which I approved …
I have felt helpless in most situations and my experience in Vegas and my reaction was a cry out on all levels … ”
Britney continued, lamenting that she hasn’t felt treated “equally,” and taking a surprisingly forgiving tone. “I will say it !!! No, I don’t feel like I have been treated as an equal person in this country …” she continued.
“Of course when I watched the video myself … the people who actually swarmed around me when they heard me get hit made me feel like I mattered !!!
I wasn’t aware of that at the time … all people could hear was me saying f*** you all … which was WAY BETTER THAN HITTING HIM BACK !!!
Either way I’m still a huge fan of the NBA player … it’s not his fault his security hit me … sh** happens !!! I hope you’re all having a wonderful Friday !!!”
